Fashion Ninjutsu is a Final Fantasy XIV fansite/blog with a focus on the game's glamour system. The site consists mostly of Glamour Spotlights, which showcase new outfits I'm using for the game's various classes. I also occasionally write about the game more generally, such as when new patches and expansions arrive, and offer my thoughts on the game in other ways, including speculation and musings on the game's content. More recently, I've started to review glamour items added to the game's Mog Station cash shop.

Fashion Ninjutsu presently updates sporadically, as I've made the decision to take some time for myself and recharge my creative batteries.

Why Patreon?
While Fashion Ninjutsu has always been, and will remain, a labor of love, the site's focus on in-game fashion means that it needs a lot of images. Most posts on the site include high quality in-game screenshots, and since the site's inception, I've amassed enough of them that I'm going to hit the limit on free online media storage sometime this year, requiring paying for additional storage if I want to maintain the site's image archive (and I do!). That means running advertisements on the site to try and offset some of that cost.

Advertisements suck, though! I don't like having them on the site (and I'm sure my readers don't either), so I'm turning to Patreon for another option. With enough support, I'll be able to disable advertisements on the site entirely. Beyond that primary goal, with greater support of the site's Patrons, I hope to begin writing a larger number of reviews of Mog Station gear, taking glamour requests from Patrons, including more screenshots, and updating more frequently, among other things.

Because Fashion Ninjutsu's Patreon is funded on a "Per Creation" basis, pledges will be collected anytime I make a post made possible by the site's patrons—namely, the monthly Patron Only Glamour Spotlight, but also any Fantasia Spotlights and Mog Station Reviews. Because patrons have the power to cap their monthly contributions, any patron wishing to maintain a more normal monthly contribution can set their cap equal to their pledge amount.

No matter what, though, I intend for the site to always be free. Sharing my love of the game has been a rewarding experience for me. All posts on the site (outside of the monthly Patron Only Spotlight, which I cross-post there since WordPress has better image features than Patreon's blogging interface) will always remain freely available, whether I have no Patrons or 100 of them—but with your support, I think I can make the site better for everyone.

And Finally, Thanks!
I wouldn't be setting this Patreon up if I hadn't had so much fun running Fashion Ninjutsu, and I wouldn't be enjoying myself so much if people weren't reading it. Thanks to everyone who reads the site and everyone who comments on, likes, or shares each post.

Thanks for checking out the Fashion Ninjutsu's Patreon, and of course, thanks again if you decide to contribute to the site!

Goals
$32 of $50 per Patreon supported blog post.
Unlimited Storage & Extra Screenshots!
At this goal, I'll feel comfortable paying for unlimited media storage for the site, which means the archive will be preserved indefinitely, with no data caps looming in the future. Without storage caps, I'll be able to add as many screenshots as I like for each new Glamour Spotlight, too.
