So, now. Personal request.
I have been writing this blog for 4 years now. It started as a hobby, but then it became an important part of what I do.
I love writing, and I write long form. I know it means fewer clicks, but in my case, it doesn’t matter.
I want to put quality over quantity. There are a lot of click bait sites out there, quick lists with “5 rules to follow to become successful in life”. No offence, this is not what I do.
The only problem – quality takes time.
Each detailed post takes me easily one full day of work. Research, first draft, selecting the pictures, then writing the final form, curating the links. All in English, my second language. That’s time that I take from my work, family and other interests.
So, after a lot of consideration, I decided to open my Patreon page. Why not? It’s supposed to support creatives in their work, and I am a creative, so here I am too.
If you like some of my articles, stories or resources, if you find them useful to your work, or just entertaining – express your support by inviting me for a metaphorical cup of coffee.
That’s all it takes. And it will mean the world to me!
I have an average of 3-400 readers a day. That’s nice. If 5 of them decide to offer me a coffee each day, this will become a nice part time activity for me, and it will be easier to justify (to myself and others) why I do it .
This will keep my motivation running and give me more inspiration to do more, faster, better.
AND — I will take feedback from my supporters on what to write next!
So what do you think? Do you want to be my White Stag?
