So I’m trying to get a better job at work. It’s still part-time but it be high up the food chain. I think it would at least.
Problem is that it will take away from my projects I want to work on, but find myself exhausted at the end of the day when it comes down to it. I’ve been trying to get folk to contribute out of the goodness of their heart, or at least let themselves be hit with some ad banners. Neither seems to have really worked. Putting up all the pages I do is a lot of work and I can’t dedicate myself to them at the expense of living, that’s just how it is. Also, I WANT to do more than just what I’m doing on the pages, but can’t due to obligations to the Gods of food and shelter. I have an idea as it relates to new content and I’m going to try and ask some folk for help short term on that.
One thing that Strike Fiss has recommended has been getting me a Patreon.com account. It would basically be an account where you, my readers, pay me a small stipend per month so I can dedicate more time to my projects and my writing. Or working the Archive on Fanbards, or creating worlds to play in on Darkscribes. Or… paying for your damned lemon factory on Lemontastica. I have some thoughts on the subject, and I’m not sure it will all work out, but I have this idea as it relates to funding all these projects.
Patreon will be where I try and get monthly funding for the general work. Things like server money, food, housing, stuff I need in order to dedicate myself to the work I want to be doing more than the work I actually am doing. I know, you probably think I’m being selfish, but hey, man’s got to eat.
I have several project ideas though that I will probably start running Kickstarter and GoFundMe campaigns for in order to fund them. I have a few ideas for things I want to do for all who read, and some projects I want to do around the local Granbury, TX area.
Why Granbury, TX. And not somewhere else? Because this is where I live.
I’m open to thoughts on this both here and on all the other linked to sites I have up. If I’m making a mistake, or if it’s just not worth it. Let me know.
