Did you just join my team of patrons?! Yes, yes you did. THANK YOU! I will be trying to post a least one major technology blog post every month (like "what is multi-factor authentication and how can you use it"), which will later on be reposted to stormerider.com and/or other locations.

Want to weigh in on my work? You will be able to participate in votes for new features/technology to be implemented by Winds of Storm. Details TBD.
Existing Winds of Storm Client
$5 or more per month ∙ 0 of 10 patrons
This option is only to help existing clients move over to using Patreon for billing and updates. People who subscribe under this level will not be provisioned with new hosting. Voting rights will apply.
$10 or more per month ∙ 1 patron
You'll receive access to your own client site on the WordPress hosting site mypatronpress.com or myauthorpress.com, with voting rights to help guide future plans and service improvements.
Premium PatronPress/AuthorPress Client
$20 or more per month ∙ 0 patrons
All previous rewards, along with support for using your own custom domain (say mymodelpage.com instead of model.mypatronpress.com). You will also get my direct email address for support issues, though I also plan on setting up a ticketing system for people to report problems / request features (such as adding new themes and plug-ins that are freely available).
Platinum PatronPress/AuthorPress Client
$30 or more per month ∙ 0 patrons
All previous rewards, plus direct cell phone support. Note: I do have a day job where I work from home half the week, and I may not be able to assist directly during business hours (especially if I'm in the office and you provide NSFW image content). You can also request me to purchase themes and plugins, though that will depend on pricing and these will become available for all users once installed. (Might be able to restrict themes if you have a custom designed theme you want installed.)
Unobtanium WordPress Client
$50 or more per month ∙ 0 of 5 patrons
All previous rewards, plus your own dedicated WordPress installation. I will provide the same plugins as on mypatronpress.com/myauthorpress.com, but the advantage of a dedicated setup is that you will be able to install new themes and plugins yourself, and they will not be shared with other users. This level of access does mean that you have the potential to break the setup, so more advanced support will also be included, such as a Skype/Google Hangout session where we share screens and I help explain things and show you how to configure things you want. All screen sharing sessions will need to be scheduled for hours when I am working from home or on the weekend... Unless this massively takes off, my day job has to come first. I will also mail out a postcard from Seattle and if I can find a good one, your choice of an ebook or print version of a book on managing WordPress.
Custom WordPress Consulting
$75 or more per month ∙ 0 of 2 patrons
This is designed for people who aren't hosted with Winds of Storm but need someone to come in and perform some emergency maintenance. I'll audit your setup, provide some recommendations in general, and do my best to resolve the issue that you're facing. I'll also provide any support you may need in migrating over to my hosting if you desire, along with a hand-written thank you note. Previous disclaimers about the day job still remain.
