Flattr is a new website that lets people donate to bloggers and other websites online with just the click of a button. Flattr lets users make "social micropayments," which are basically online tips to bloggers for their good work.

Flattr works like this: you sign up and put in a flat rate for your month of tipping. If you visit sites that you like that have a Flattr badge, you can click on it to tip/donate to them. At then end of the month, all of your clicks will be added up by Flattr and the money you put in will be distributed to the sites you clicked on. Flattr probably won't be able to pay a blogger's bills, but it gives the reading public a nice way to show gratitude to all of the hardworking bloggers out there.
