Steampunk Journal

is creating a BIGGER Online Steampunk Magazine

Steampunk Journal is arguably the most popular online steampunk magazine in the world! This is all thanks to you - the readers and fans of the site - who come back and support us by sharing our work and getting involved. It couldn't be done without your help. I'm Moriarty Viccar and I founded the Journal in 2013 to document my journey through steampunk.
What began as a simple scrolling blog has become a large, gorgeous self hosted magazine.
Along the way I've joined forces with Phoebe Darqueling. She also ran a blog called For Whom The Gear Turns. She began writing for the Journal in 2016 and we've been co-Editors ever since.
We also get regular contributions from Bess Goden of Steampunk Parliament, Victoria Szulc and Eric Fisk from The Fedora Chronicles.
Our house photographer is Sean Tice, who will supply photography for patrons and our house band is Victor & The Bully. The boys have agreed to supply music for Patreon subscribers as we add tiers. We'll also be interested in including other artists and distributing a portion of the income to them.
For now, we want to concentrate on beefing the site up. 
We're looking to get a dedicated server to speed up the site and allow us to integrate a brand new theme. The latter is ready to go but the shared server we're currently on can't cope with the stress of the new theme or the volume of new work we'll add once it's up. A dedicated server will only be used by Steampunk Journal and associated websites so won't have hundreds or thousands of other sites fighting for server space.
We're starting with a $1 pledge to get us going. This is ideal for fans of Steampunk Journal who, like us, simply want the site to be bigger, better and faster. The reward for this pledge is the support you give to us through your love of steampunk and the incredible communities we serve. 
It would be marvellous if you joined us on our journey through steampunk and let's see what it can really do.
Tiers
Supporting Steampunk Journal
$1 or more per month
Many thanks for believing in the site and the work that we do. This contribution is all about getting the site running faster and will be used to pay for a dedicated server, which is surprisingly more expensive.

When the new look site is revealed, your name and everyone else who subscribes to this tier will be mentioned as valued contributors to the Journal and able to make it happen. Please inform us if you would prefer a pseudonym or to remain anonymous.

Downloads and Promotions
$3 or more per month

Thank you so much for supporting Steampunk Journal! The great news though is that with this tier, it's not just us that you're supporting. 50% of everything we make on this tier (after the Patreon cut) goes to the artist that is being promoted on the particular month that you join!

Support Independent artists!

That means that you're also supporting independent artists! And if you've joined because of your favourite artist, then you're supporting them personally and it's one extra way of helping them make the art that you enjoy :)

A New Promotion Each Month!

Each month will have a different something for you. Whether it's a photo, a song, some art or whatever. But it will only be available for that month and it will be taken off the page, unless the artist is ok with us keeping it on here. So make sure you join sooner rather than later in case you miss your chance.

Goals
$6 of $30 per month
Once we reach $30 per month, we will be able to upgrade the servers to a dedicated platform. This will speed the site up and allow us to transfer over to our new theme which is much more powerful.
