Unlike some creators on Patreon, I've only said good-bye to a few valued patrons. And I totally understand why they have unsubscribed.
In response to messages I had about alternative ways to be my patron, I have set up a few choices. They are a bit rough, until I properly research free plug-ins for my website.
Of course you are welcome to stay on this platform with me. I will continue to post updates here, and honour all the rewards.
Otherwise, alternatives ways to be my patron, where I carry the costs and not you, are -
For one off contributions to me as a creator, there are two choices:
- A payme link (also found in my twitter bio) connected to my personal PayPal account.
- A pay now button on my website, connected to my merchant PayPal account (with added customer protections).
There is now a range of monthly subscriptions ($1, $3, $5 and $10) on my website.
These subscriptions are not linked to anything but soon I will add either a members only page or monthly e-newsletter via MailChimp. I will NOT add any one to a e-newsletter unless permission is granted, as emails can be annoying.
Eventually, I will offer patron/subscriber rewards and gifts.
And my temporary online clearance 'store' still has some great book bargains. All at cost price or lower, and free postage (Australia only)
Once again, I thank you for your patience and invaluable support. Some months, your contributions have been my only source of income. So I cannot thank you enough.
See you around - here, on twitter, on my website, and perhaps even in 'real life'.
