Running the blog is not a free endeavour and as more content is added daily, the costs of hosting and web support are growing. One thing the blog does have in abundance, however, are its loyal readers and so I have decided to set up a Patreon account to allow supporters to help keep the blog running with new and innovative content daily. This blog would be pretty pointless without its readership and hopefully you enjoy the content I write and some of you may wish to help support the blog with a small monthly payment, to quote an old cliché, of less than a cup of coffee!
Supporters through Patreon can chose one of three tiers of support, each with different levels of exclusive content:
Official Patron (£2 a month)- Supporting the page at this level entitles you to a monthly newsletter, your name is published on the site as a supporter.
All-Access Patron (£2.50 a month)- This tier entitles you to a monthly newsletter, your name published on the blog as a supporter and to submit questions for a monthly Q&A post.
VIP Patron (£4 a month)- This tier entitles you to a monthly newsletter, your name published on the blog as a supporter, you can submit questions for the monthly Q&A session and you will have access to an exclusive monthly podcast.
I intend to tweak these benefits and offer more to supporters as time goes on and I get a better handle on what works, but this will always be the minimum offered to each tier. Going forward I am considering exclusive articles and video content, however I would like your feedback about what sorts of exclusive content you might be interested in as well, so please comment below.
If you would like to support the blog and pledge a small amount monthly, then please check out my Patreon page here.
