Why I am choosing Patreon

Thomas WhiteThomas White

To make some of the very best content possible, it is no secret it can be expensive. Sure I can cut corners and spend wisely, which I already do, but so far everything has come from my own pocket. On top of this, I work full time, need to pay bills and do a whole lot of activism. So to help reduce this burden, I have been investigating ways to monetise this blog, without making my readers a commodity or in any way devalue your time.

The obvious answer to most people wanting to monetise is advertising. I have never been a fan of advertising, and likely never will. When it comes to content, I would always prefer to make nominal contributions, even if it is only to skip a few moments of ads, because I value my time and know this puts more in the pocket of the content creator I love. Here are some of my top reasons for not exploring the route of advertising.
