I have my hands full with reader questions, but people often ask me to weigh in on advice questions other writers have answered. If you want to support the main site and occasionally nominate questions from around the web for group discussion, this is a good tier for you.

About

Hello there and welcome to my Patreon page!

I write  Captain Awkward, an advice column for nerds, geeks, dorks, late bloomers, and other smart folks who need some support in setting boundaries and asserting themselves. I’m also an adjunct college instructor and an eternal freelancer, which means I am always hustling for money to keep a roof over my head and satisfy my love of fine cheese.

Which brings us to this.

If you like what I write and find it helpful, please consider supporting my work here on Patreon. You can pledge any amount you want per month, and cancel or change your pledge at any time. In return, I have some fun rewards laid out below, and goals on the left that we can work towards to make Captain Awkward bigger and better.

My column will always be available to read for free on my website, but this offers an opportunity for you to support me financially if that's something you want to do, and for me to give a little something in return. You are some of the nicest, best people on the internet, and I always love reading your comments, seeing you support and encourage one another, and plan meetups/projects. This platform will allow us to collaborate even better to do ALL the cool things!

Once you become a patron you will have access to my activity feed here where I'll share more about myself and my work, have discussions and generally make this a cozy, hug-friendly place. You can help determine what you want to see here!

I sincerely appreciate any amount you can offer, even $1/month adds up.
Goals
63% complete
This is something I've been wanting to do for years, and if we get to this point I'll finally be able to do it! We'll have our own convention/get-together, maybe with board games, karaoke, readings of awkward tales, music, creative projects, a film and/or story festival, speed-friending, a Peanuts-style advice booth, two circles drawn on the floor where people can stand and give each other Jedi Hugs and compliments from a few feet away, and who knows what else.. let's make it happen!
