When I was a younger version of myself, I was always curious about the complex chain of dependencies that even a relatively simple web app requires.
As such, I try and run Buttondown as transparently as possible: I update this page at the start of every month to reflect new expenses and growth.
My general philosophy on spending money for Buttondown is to default towards it, within reason: Buttondown doesn't have external funding, so I can't exactly burn through my checking account with wild abandon.
Anyway, all of that is to say: none of these are probably that surprising, but I hope you find it interesting! If you're interested in learning any more about this, feel free to email me.

In addition, there's some stuff I've spent money on in the past and no longer do so:
