About Brad Linder

My name is Brad Linder, and I'm an independent journalist, blogger, podcast producer and editor of the mobile tech websites Liliputing and Linux Smartphones

I've been writing about little computers at Liliputing since 2008. In that time I've brought you news, tips, and reviews about laptops, Chromebooks, tablets, smartphones, wearables, mini computers, Windows, Android, Linux, and a ton of hacker-friendly devices.

In 2020, I also launched LinuxSmartphones.com as a dedicated hub for news, how-to articles, and op-eds related to the fast-growing (but still in its infancy) Linux phone hardware and software spaces. 

Why I need your help

These websites are ad-supported and blogging is my full-time job. But online ad revenue rises and falls at the whims of advertisers and other market forces, which can make online publishing an unpredictable source of income.

So if you value the kind of reporting offered at Liliputing and Linux Smartphones (and our YouTube channel), please consider becoming a patron and helping support the site. 

While these websites will always be free and available to the public, I'm also well aware that the site's audience is pretty geeky... and a large portion of the folks that visit the website are using ad-blockers. 

What's in it for you?


So what do you get if you decided to back this campaign? Mostly, my thanks. 

Honestly, I already work pretty hard on Liliputing and Linux Smartphones and additional income isn't going to change that... although decreasing income might. If revenue from online advertising declines in the coming years, I might have to go find a day job or something.

If there's enough interest from backers of the campaign, I might be willing to add reward levels including things like Liliputing or T-shirts, mugs, or USB flash drives or other things. Have other ideas? Let me know by leaving a comment below!
