I've decided to set up a Patreon for portions of Frivology to help pay the bills, keep me motivated, and develop a more direct connection with readers.
Gaming posts typically fall into two categories: Gaming Resources, and Game Development.
Gaming Resources are things you can actually use in your game or that make gaming easier. Some examples are: 100 Weird Random Books, G+ Gaming-Themed Event Banners, and The Random Dungeon Tournament Drop Table. Whenever possible, I include PDFs and high-resolution images for everything I do.
Game Development are discussions on developing tabletop roleplaying games, hashing out ideas I've had, or testing out new things. Like the post discussing the Random Dungeon Drop Table I made before building a finished product.
I've been baking cookies since I was a little kid. In recent days, it's been a pretty tasty stress-reliever. By choosing to post my baking adventures on the blog, I'm also putting my photography skills to work, taking pictures of the process from start to finish. A typical baking post includes my commentary about why I chose that particular thing to bake, a trip through the experience baking it along with any tips or tricks I've discovered, and the recipe for the goodies. Chocolate Crinkles was one of my recent favorites to give you an idea of how they work.
Other PostsOf course, those aren't the only posts I put up on Frivology, those are just the ones I'm willing to monetize. I'm not comfortable with the idea of monetizing social commentary and work I do for the purpose of advancing a cause (like feminism). My general philosophy is that if the only thing you, the reader, are going to get from the post is the fact that I have an opinion and what that opinion is, I won't monetize it.
Otherwise, you should always get something you can use from all my posts. Ideas, inspiration, artwork, recipes, and of course lots of gaming material!
