Help a Developer Out
WP About Author, blogging and developing other blogging plugins and themes takes up a lot of my time. As much as I love doing it, development slows down when I start taking in side work to pay the bills. If you like WP About Author or anything else you see on JonBishop.com, please feel free to donate the amount of your choice to help keep me running.
