I blog at edrith.co.uk, where I write about politics, current affairs, economics, books, games and miscellany. I also sometimes write for other open-access sites, usually on politics or higher education policy.

In addition to blogging, I create Christmas Quizzes, board games and occasionally write longer pieces of work - I've published one novel and a collection of short stories, with the sequel expected to be completed in 2020.

Please don't feel any pressure at all to donate. I have a day job and maintaining this website costs no more than one would expect of a hobby. All of my posts will continue to be freely available on my blog, though contributors will get some particular perks. It's unlikely that the volume of support I get through this will make a difference to how much I post.

However, if you value what you read, like to reward creators for what they make and want to support, then I'd naturally be very grateful. Tier payments are based on monthly payment, not per-post payment.

Unrealistically High Anchor Price

Studies show that having an unrealistically highly priced item above  the ones you really want to sell makes those ones look more moderate and reasonable in comparison, and convinces people to buy more of them.
