I'm Anna, a Swedish journalist and blogger, and I see Patreon as a way to develop my work and my activity. I started my blog 2009 and I've been working as a journalist/writer since 1989. Today I'm a freelancer and it pays my bills but also means that my work gets locked up behind the newspaper paywalls. Now, I would like to move more of my work to my blog but to do so I have to find a way to get paid. I need to travel to see the people I want to interview, I need to buy the books I want to write about, etcetera. The most common topics on my blog is literature, storytelling, grief, mental health and philosophy.

Two things I am incredible proud of
