And So My Patreon Page is ‘Live’
|It says I create those things; I guess I do.|
Anyway, I have decided go a bit further with my blog and hopefully grow it. For that, I felt I needed to diversify my possible stream of income, and have chosen to use Patreon as a platform to manage sponsorships for my blog. The sponsorship here is slightly different. Unlike the usual business-to-blogger or business-to-ad-network-to-blogger sponsorship, on Patreon, regular people or consumers of products produced by creators, be it blogposts, videos or art, choose to sponsor those creators by being a patron and make monthly contributions.
Signing up is free and after which you are automatically a patron. You can stay that way and look for people to sponsor or you can create a creator’s page to receive sponsorships.
The process took some time for me as I like to get to know everything I possibly can before signing up. The good thing is Patreon has a way of explaining things which makes everything simpler; even their terms and conditions [T&C] are fun to read, well as fun as you can get reading a T&C, but certainly not the long-drawn I-understand-the-words-but-not-the-sentence type of T&C.

Anyway, I’m trying to get to know Patreon a bit more and adding more options, such as goals, as I go along. I don’t expect to get a sustainable income so soon, or at all; you will still need to promote your page and basically look for patrons yourself. I also need to have more contents and post regularly before that can happen. In the meantime, if you like the idea of this patronage thingy and would like to sponsor me [patronising is also allowed but not encouraged], please head over to my Patreon page. Thank you.
