I've been running Games and Junk, a website and podcast, for a few years. I finally feel I have a good core group of people to work with, but the problem for me is time. I have a 40+ hour a week job with a 90 minute round trip commute. I also have two children that I take care of during the day (they're mine, not some random kids). With that much on my plate, creating content is a bit of struggle because I have to work as much as I do to  make sure my kids are provided for and I can pay my writers for their work and pay for the hosting of the site and podcast.

Ultimately, I'd like to make enough to even break even with the cost of the site. What I'd really prefer is to make enough that I can cut back on my hours so I can afford to do a podcast or two a week and also start producing video content. The more money this brings in, the more people I can afford to pay to contribute to the site.

If you've been even a casual fan of my work, I'd appreciate any help you can provide. Even a dollar a month from you is a huge help! If you can't do that, tell a friend! I've been flattered by some of my friends encouraging me to try Patreon out, so here I am taking the plunge.

As far as rewards go, I don't know what would work best. A shoutout on a podcast? Requesting specific content? You tell me! You pay me and I'll do what I can to make it happen!

$0 of $10 per Post
This would allow me to make sure we get a podcast up a week, cover hosting costs, and pay for a couple of articles from a freelancer.
