This page has gone through a lot of changes over the years.
First it was a donation page
then you could give me money to make me do videos
then you could buy my book to make me do videos
but now I have a better idea:
this is a page where I beg you to give money to my Patreon
so that this can be my job.
See, I’ve been writing myths on this here website for 5 years
and other than a couple of misguided months back when I was on Blogger
I have never served ads on this site.
I’ve sold shirts, I’ve hawked my book, and I’ve done videos for dollars
but I always try to give you something for your money.
These days, though, I haven’t been doing much of anything to capture your dollars
which means that when I ought to be writing and researching myths
I’m stuck writing power tool product descriptions instead, just to make rent.
This is unacceptable.
That’s not the kind of garbage I want to be filling the internet with.
THIS is the kind of garbage I want to be filling the internet with.
By supporting my Patreon, you will free me up to spend more time writing and researching myths.
That means more myths per week
it means more videos, and higher production values
and it means cool extras for patrons
like a swear-of-the-month club
and the ability to vote on your favorite mythoses for me to tell.
If you give me enough money, I’ll even finish telling the fucking Silmarillion
that’s how desperate I am.
So get on over to the Patreon page and give me some dollars
I don’t care how many
one, three, ten, fifty, a million
whatever, it’s all good.
What matters is that I love you
and that you give me money right now because I’m hungry.
