About Simcha Fisher

Hi! I'm Simcha Fisher and I'm a compulsive writer, a selective pedant, a drinker, a failed homeschooler, and a blabbermouth who always keeps a shoulder open, just in case that stupid muse feels like stopping by. I write with my ten children on my mind and sometimes literally on my head. And I like to cook. 

I write for a variety of platforms, but simchafisher.com is all mine. I've kept the ads as minimal and unobtrusive as I can, and I'm also trying real hard to do less reactive headline chasing and argy bargy insta-commentary. So the kind folks who support me through Patreon with even a dollar a month truly keep the site afloat while I do projects that take more time but are more worthwhile (like Black Catholics respond to Abby Johnson and my interview with the co-founder of Exodus 90) and also things with a small but devoted audience (like my weekly What's For Supper? food posts). And straight up stupid stuff (like Vortex Valentines). Direct support from patrons also allows me to decide what I want to write about, without having to argue with an editor or an advisory board, which is why I've been able to run articles about Christendom College and The Legion of Christ and The Slaves of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Pretty much all I know how to do is write, and I used to make money writing things like twelve SEO-optimized articles about cigar materials in a day. I'm very grateful to be able to make a living covering things that interest me, instead. My husband and I are both freelancers, which is a liberating but precarious way to support a large family. So to my patrons, a heartfelt thanks. I'm so grateful you've stuck with me. We hope you enjoy the new podcast.


Goals
92% complete
Every month, I aim to pay the mortgage and buy food. Not a lofty goal, but I'm kind of attached to it.
