What is Pie Cubed?
Pie Cubed is a website about the wonderful world of science. I write about cool interesting things such as how humans breathe in space, how there is a giant cloud of gas in the middle of our galaxy that tastes of alcoholic raspberries, and how hippos are closely related to dolphins(!).

My goal is to make science fun and accessible. To write entertaining and interesting science articles without dumbing things down. Everything is meticulously researched.

Writing for Pie Cubed is a lot of fun and I really enjoy delving into the sciency stuff that really fascinates me. However, it does take a lot of time and a lot of effort. Researching, writing, fact-checking. It's almost like a real job. Which is why I'm asking for help. For YOUR help.

What is Patreon?

Patreon is a crowdfunding service and a really good way to support your favourite creators. You might have heard of Kickstarter, where creators can get their big projects funded by their fans.
Patreon is similar, but unlike Kickstarter, the focus is not on a big huge project but on the regular creation of smaller pieces of content: videos, comics and (like in in Pie Cubed's case) articles.
The way it works is simple. You can pledge an amount of money for each piece of content produced. So for example, if you pledge $2, every time a new Pie Cubed feature-length article goes live you donate those $2.

You can also set up a monthly maximum limit. For example if you've pledged $2 per piece of content and set a maximum of $4 per month you will never donate more than $4 per month, even if more than 2 articles are published! Pretty neat!

Depending on the donation amount you can exclusive rewards, such as getting access to the articles a day early or getting to participate in monthly hangouts with yours truly (yay!).
My aim is to publish 2 feature-length articles per month (1000+ words). Other, shorter pieces of content, like this one, for example, will not be counted in this total (and no money will be taken).

Why support Pie Cubed?

Writing thoroughly researched and entertaining science articles takes time and effort. Just like a real job. I would like to make it my real job.
The donations would also help me to buy better equipment to record videos and to do other fun things.
If you think Pie Cubed is awesome and want me to continue making great content YOU can help. Even the smallest of donations makes a huge difference.
