It doesn't cost anything to be a Nerdling, and yet, you're paying for advanced Nerdling access. That makes you an ADVANCED NERDLING!  Seriously, you're making a real, tangible difference in my ability to create content. I sincerely thank you.

Your Digital Welcome Basket includes almost 2GB of videos, podcasts, presentations, 100+ Tech Tip Videos, and more! (See the Stockings video below for an example of the silliness you can expect...)

Includes Discord benefits
  • More stuff as I think of it...

Based on my average power bill, I spend about $10 a day to keep the lights on, the coffee brewed, and the velociraptors' fencing electrified. With your subscription, one day out of every month you are solely responsible for protecting the world from my cats. Er, velociraptors. (Get it? "Power" Nerdling?!? Cuz of the power bill? Ahh yes, these are the sort of brilliant ideas you're supporting. This is basically your fault.)

In addition to the Digital Welcome Basket, you'll also be listed as a supporter in my videos!!!

Ok, this is getting serious. I'm not really good at serious, but $20 is serious. Seriously. At this level, you're not just supporting me and my ability to create content, but you've decided to actively contribute to the same sort of world-changing endeavors I strive to accomplish. We must be kindred spirits, because you clearly know what I'm about, and you're still all in. You rock, fellow weirdo. :)

You get all the stuff listed in the previous tiers, AND...

A Physical Welcome Basket, which includes stickers, magnets, maybe a keychain -- I'll include everything I can scrounge up!

Plus, in addition to getting listed as a supporter in videos, I'll also give you a personal shout out in an upcoming video, and tweet your praises on Twitter!

About Shawn Powers

Everything I create is done in the hope it will change someone's life for the better. When I make Linux training videos, I want to help people get a better job, or feel more confident in their current job. When I draw a comic, I try to add humor to real life struggles we all face, but seldom talk about. And when I write or podcast, I just want to get people thinking about each other with empathy and kindness, so we can make the world a better place for each other.

I don't want a paywall to stop people from learning everything, so they can figure out what they love. So almost everything I create is freely available. If you become a Patron, I will try to provide additional value, and give you some insight and influence into what I do -- but at the end of the day, you'll be helping me to give away as much value to the world as possible. Thanks for joining me in this silly, wonderful, and kind-hearted mission. -Shawn
