We've been watching "Pay off your mortgage in 2 years" on BBC2 recently, and it has inspired Dawn and I to try and get our own mortgage paid off as quickly as possible. In our particular situation, if we do this, we'll save ourselves over 30 grand! We've started on this path by doubling our monthly mortgage payment, but another part of trying to do this is to maximise your income.

So here is our attempt to maximise our income. Help us pay off our mortgage, there's more info on the page and a couple of new links in the top nav and side nav.

Now I'm sure you're thinking we are mad, who is going to donate money to us. But you know what, I literally don't know who is going to donate money to us, and as the title of this post suggests, if you don't ask, you don't get. So lets find out!

The page is pretty rough around the edges design wise at the moment, but given time, and gauging response to it I might improve it, make it look nicer, and update the wording. In the web world you never know what's going to be the next big thing.

I'm hoping obviously the next big thing will be our little page, that thousands of people will flock to it, be amused enough to donate a pound or a dollar, and even if they don't donate, blog about it so that their friends can share in our bare faced cheek!

So there you have it, success or not of our mission is in your hands. Go forth and blog about this page, and be a part of internet history.
