I am an independent author. I don’t have a large corporation supports me, a boss over my head or sponsored posts and ads. Thanks to the patrons I can keep it this way. All your support means a lot to me.
The idea of a patron is all about choosing quality above quantity. Cutting yourself out from the all-embracing internet noise, advertisers, pop ups, banners and sponsored content in a world which stopped valuing quality since a long time.
My recent costs are an audio lector, which absorbs the most money, but since it’s way easier to press play during brushing teeth or navigating a spaceship, than having to read it on your own, I think it’s worth it. Just after that, translations and proofreading, and on the end, things like hosting and domain.
There isn’t always a possibility to repay in a proper and even way. Despite that I could do it by creating more and better content, inviting for a coffee at my place, personally highfiving or placing on the patron wall, it’s still much easier to treat someone like a hitchhiker – someone else will take him – thought every driver that day. That’s why I’m utterly grateful, not only for every crypto support, but for the time you devote to a complete stranger, who might as well, from all this support, buy sweets and flee to Mexico.
