10 thoughts on “To Patreon or Not to Patreon

    1. Thanks for your comment. I think people can become quick to jump onto different platforms without always taking the time to think about whether they can manage them all and give them the attention they deserve. While Patreon is great for giving rewards to loyal supporters, I feel it does need a lot of work and attention and I just couldn’t justify that yet. 🙂

      1. I think that’s the best way to be. Dedicate time and energy to the ones you have, to get really deep into how they work and systems that work for you rather than just toe-dipping in everything. 🙂

  1. Now I know what this is all about, Ari – a great explanation and I thought I might have been missing out on something. But now I know, I can sit happy knowing it isn’t for me. Cheers!

    1. Exactly, in order to make it worth your patrons’ time you would have to create constant content and value for their money and honestly, some days I struggle just to keep my blog going. I wouldn’t yet want the added burden of thinking “OMG I have to upload something for my patrons” every week. Like you, when time permits, maybe then I’ll take a look.

  2. An exciting read. No one has ever asked me, and I’ve never really thought about it, but your post makes a lot of sense. Like you, I do not have the time to do something extra. Good for you for staying true to yourself and not trying to take advantage of others.

    1. Thanks 🙂 I think it can become all too easy trying to jump on every single platform and opportunity which can leave a person stretched thin and unable to make full use of them. I have certain projects in the works but I want to give them a good amount of attention. Patreon, while great for gaining support from loyal followers, is just too much of a time commitment to even consider at this time.
