So I am a huge fan of ghost, and I love providing my content free of charge. That being said server hosting costs money.

I added a tips badge to the bottom of my blog posts (see below) to try to offset the costs.

How I did this was simple. I signed up for a gratipay account. Once signed in I went to the widgets section of my profile and found my badge.

I took the image tag and wrapped it around an a tag that will link to my profile.

</a>

I then went into my themes folder at content/themes/ghostium where I found a file called post.hbs

I scrolled to where I found the part that the author website url is injected. I then added in the badge from gratify
