I was refering to financial means. My guess would be the vast majority. Info and advice is different.

I've always thought cruisers were pretty much self realiant. Could be wrong.

Aloha and welcome aboard!
Its good you have a blog. I don't. If it were me, unless I was begging for money, I'd leave off the Paypal button.
That's not the way cruisers operate. I've met some boaters who needed money. They didn't have to ask. I gave them some equipment I had extra. I'm extremely generous but not to people who beg.
kind regards,
