The new chapter comes out in about forty-five minutes. This is basically me just copy/pasting my Donations page into the form of a post. If you want to know why… Well, because not many people even read it?
I honestly don’t expect anything from this, because out of ten thousand people, there would probably only be a handful of amazing and super-awesome people who are willing to sacrifice their hard-earned money, in order to help me out. It’s not as if no-one donates, cause there certainly have been a few, and even a single dollar would be incredibly generous from my perspective :).
I’ve kept donations anonymous, because unless the person writes “Mention that I donated on the donation page.” and gives me a name that they want me to call them, I’d feel awkward announcing their actual name lmfao. Also, if you do the whole Patreon thing, then you set up your own profile, and there isn’t really much for me to do?
I’m not a translator, so I don’t have an infinite supply of other people’s work that I can consistently pump out. Thus, I can’t really ‘speed-up’ my writing depending on how much money people throw at me. Well, I could certainly try, but the quality would drop by a lot.
On the other hand, the list of things that I can’t afford to fix or replace is growing daily: ten year old computer that barely works, broken desk-chair, broken bed, broken ice-machine in my freezer, ect. Basically, I don’t expect to receive enough money from this to pay for any of those things.
However, I’ve had this blog for a while now, and I figured that since everyone else has one, I wanted a donation button as well. It may not be particularly glamorous, but at least it exists now.
For those of you would would rather become a patron, here’s a link to my Patreon site, where you can throw money at me and I might not die :).
