Patreon is a crowdfunding platform which allows authors, artists, and other creative people to be funded by small donations from a large number of people, supporting them financially while giving them as much time as possible to do their creative work. Patrons pledge to give a certain amount each month (or per project, but I decided to use a “per month” basis so it’s more predictable for all involved), which (after a small fee for Patreon itself) goes directly to the creative workers to help fund their work.
I have just launched a Patreon for myself, to support this blog and more generally my efforts in research and writing. If you like what you see here (and I assume you do, since you’re reading it), I encourage you to support me in producing future content by becoming a patron. Even $1 per month is enough to become a patron (and adds up quickly if I get enough people!), and higher amounts will grant you special perks like early access to my drafts and the opportunity to vote on future topics.
