So there is something I’ve been thinking about for a while. And I just want to ask you guys what you think about it. I’ve been thinking about signing up to Patreon, now Patreon is a website where fans of a thing eg this blog, can pledge money every month to help support that thing. Kind of like how you used to get patrons who supported artists and stuff. I’m not explaining this very well.
The thing is I have so many ideas for blog posts and stuff I want to do, I want to start making youtube videos again, I want to do a big series to help people getting started with blogging, I have a bunch of ideas about fanfiction type posts. I have this massive series planned about stuff to do in Scotland. And so many more ideas, seriously you would drown in post-it notes if you saw them all. But all this costs money, and I don’t have much money.
I really hate bringing my illness into this but its the truth. I can’t work because of the CFS. Everything would be so much easier if I could just go out and get a job, but I can’t, I have problems getting a blog post out every day, I can’t go work a 9 to 5 job. As much as I would like to.
So I thought instead I could sign up to Patreon and ask that if anyone enjoys this blog and wants to see it grow, maybe they could help by paying a few dollars a month. But I know that this is controversial and it annoys people and I’m not even going to get into the whole ‘should bloggers be paid to blog’ stuff. But I thought I should ask you guys and see what you think of this, considering you know, it would be you guys that I ask for help.
