Hello Patrons!
 
My name is Shawn Tierney, and I’m the author of TheAutomationBlog.com, the latest iteration of my website and where I've been sharing automation how-to articles, videos, and example code since 1999.

While I absolutely love sharing how-to articles and videos on using automation, it's always been a struggle to find the time and funds to produce quality content and maintain the website.

As time has gone on, the site's ad revenue has grown to a point where it almost covers our hosting costs, but nothing more, which is where this Patreon comes in!

New Patreon Goals (August, 2019):

Our first new goal is to raise $500 per month to (1) cover all our hosting costs, and (2) remove all ads from our sites and videos, and (3) make all of our sample code downloads totally free of charge!

Seeing as we average 26K readers a month, this means we need just 2% to pledge $1 a month!

Patron Rewards:

In appreciation of your support helping of reach this goal, the following will happen:

1) All Partons will get ALL our video series completely FREE!

That's right, once we hit the first goal every single Patron will get lifetime streaming and download access to the four seasons of The Automation Minute, and current season of The Automation Show via Vimeo.com!

2) We'll make all our websites and videos AD FREE!

That's right, reaching $500 a month will net us a completely Ad Free version of TheAutomationBlog.com, as well as make our YouTube.com channel Ad Free as well!

3) We will make all our Sample Code downloads FREE!

Currently we ask for a $0.99 donation to download our sample code, but we'll make them all FREE once this first goal is reached!

4) We'll reach out to others in the automation world to see if they would be willing to become freelance bloggers and help us expand the number and variety of articles we publish each month. And the more we exceed our goal, the more freelancers we'll be able to hire ;-)

Thank You for your Support!

Finally, let me thank you for becoming a Patron of TheAutomationBlog.com! I hope you have an awesome week!

Until next time, PEACE!
