I want to ask this question: Which donating service should I use for my blog?

Moreover, I want to have an opinion about my claim makes in the proposal of Blogging. I'm sorry that I didn't ask you first :(

I think such questions are on-topic here, based on the What topics can I ask about here?:

Creating, expanding, and cultivating communities, their content, and the relationships among members. This includes things like attracting new people with advertising, get more contributions from members, moderating your moderators, or just making your community grow as a whole.

If contributing means money or knowledge, then I think my first question is on-topic. But it's not clear for me that any question about blogging will be good here.

  • Use the scope tag instead. – Anonymous Penguin Sep 7 '15 at 14:10
  • I think we can add on-topic as another name of scope tag – Ooker Sep 8 '15 at 9:45

I think you have two (or three) separate questions here.

  • Which donating service should I use for my blog? - This is a very broad question that is, basically, asking for a shopping list of possible responses. As phrased, it is off topic. However, I can very easily see a question along these lines being focused and made to be on topic. Donations, advertising, sponsorship, etc. are all relevant to building and sustaining some communities.

  • Is asking about the audience issue in blogging on-topic? - Blogs are a unique snowflake. There are blogs that form communities around them, but there are others that just want readers. You'd have to explain what you mean by "audience issue". Improving engagement and building content for a blog is on topic.

  • If contributing means money or knowledge, then I think my first question is on-topic. But it's not clear for me that any question about blogging will be good here. - To me, "contributing" means "time, knowledge and/or finances". If the question is about how to improve user contributions and you have a question that is focused enough for us to answer, it is welcome.

  • Thanks for your answer. So, should I ask about the donating service? – Ooker Sep 8 '15 at 15:40

    @Ooker, if you can phrase the question in such a way that it doesn't read as "recommend a donation service that I should use", yes. – Andy Sep 8 '15 at 18:51
  • I have an idea. Instead of asking the question is the blogger's view, how about to ask it in the reader's view? – Ooker Sep 12 '15 at 14:44
  • Point of view isn't an issue, though it could provide different answers. – Andy Sep 12 '15 at 16:27
