The New Patreon Policy
Patreon will be changing their billing practice soon, so that you will be charged a fee and a percentage of your contribution, and I will receive a bit more (though they'll take 5% off the top). There's nothing I can do about it. I've lost one $1 supporter, though I don't know if that was the reason, or my lack of output. If others of you want to leave, I'll understand. Patreon will end up discouraging small contributors, and as much as I'd like to rake in more dough, I love it that larger contributors are balanced by those who, like me, hesitate to part with what might be next week's grocery money, but who want to express their support in a tangible way.

Yes, $1 is less than a cup of coffee, but sit next to me at the counter—on purpose—and pay attention for a minute or two, and you've made my day.
