I'm an avid blogger. While working for newspapers, I was an award-winning reporter and columnist. I spent twenty years writing about NASCAR, but other sports have popped up frequently in my blogs, short stories and novels.
What brought me to Patreon? I could use some money. I could use a vehicle to draw attention to my books.
I think it's fair to say I'm known for my independence. I don't want restrictions on my freedom to write what I think. Patrons have the right to withhold their support any time they want, but most of my fans value my independence. That might not be the case with advertisers or corporate affiliations.
Your support won't change my outlook. Your interests may have an effect on what subjects I explore. If you tell me to shut up, I won't, but I may take it under advisement. I promise I'll listen
Your support might get me out more. I might be able to afford to do more writing on site.
I'm anxious to see what, if anything, develops.
Samuel Johnson said, "None but a blockhead ever wrote, except for money."
Thus do I hope to be less a blockhead.
