Hi!

My name is Eric Bailey. I like Jesus, writing, coffee, bad jokes, and old video games.

For years I have been blogging, podcasting, launching websites... generally Creating Content and stirring up harmless online mischief. My central hub of activity is on Twitter, @EricVBailey. I also own Skirmish Frogs, a retro gaming community.

Although I have some personal projects on the back burner right now (fiction! Twine games! NES site revamp! etc.), I have been busy with various other games writing projects and collabs, not to mention the rigors of life besides.

If I could summarize my 'brand' vision, I'd say that I am truly trying to carve out a positive space on the internet, on a variety of subjects, away from toxicity and rampant political mudslinging, while knowing that it's all for nothing if I don't use my platform to speak unashamedly on Jesus Christ sometimes as well.



I am blessed to have cultivated a modest following, and some people are fond of me enough to want to support me this way, so I am simply giving them the opportunity. Also, it costs money to maintain websites (among other creative-venture expenses), and I just don't have a lot of disposable income lying around.

To be clear: This is not a Patreon that rewards supporters with exclusive new content -- anything I write or otherwise create will be available for everyone. 

I think of my Patreon as a crowdfunded way to hire myself as a columnist for my own sites. If support increases, what I can do increases. For one example, I'd love to more regularly pay people for artwork and commissioned features, something I've done a little of in the past and would like to do more of in the future.

Having said that, I would like to draw attention to the $40/month tier, at which point you can hire me as a monthly columnist for your own site. I'd be happy to discuss the possibility (and share my portfolio) in private with anyone interested. Let's talk!

If you would like to support me but cannot make a monthly commitment, one-time contributions can go to my Ko-Fi page.

I am a scatterbrained creative mind constantly putting stuff into the universe that wasn't there before while being intentional about being lighthearted, positive, and encouraging. I truly appreciate any support I receive toward these endeavors.

Thank you!

Oh goodness.

In addition to my general gratitude, I will also be happy to promote the heck out of your projects. You want tweets? Facebook mentions? Dozens (maybe hundreds, thousands) of new eyeballs on your Thing? You got it. Let's partner in promoting your work. You will have an open line to collaborate with ideas to best put a spotlight on your stuff.

At this point I'm renewing website domains annually and feeling Generally Supported In My Endeavors, which is wonderful and fantastic.
