I am in an awesome mood for so many reasons today, even though it is a Monday... lol
A little while back my amazing hubby told me about a little site called Patreon. I usually stay on top of social media and crowdfunding sites so I was a little surprised I had not heard about this. After doing some research I found out how awesome it really is so I created one and worked on it for five days straight.. tweaking things here and there, creating visuals, etc. to make it just right and launched it today at noon!
Why does this concern you? Well it is a REAL way that you can support artists and creative types like myself who love making amazing content but usually have to do so at our own expense or little to no pay. Yes I get paid when hosting and for some other services I perform but usually when I am out and about supporting events, doing live coverage, etc. I do so, or rather my husband and I do so, on our own. We of course get free entry to many events and get treated awesome at so many places but it does take time, energy, gas, wear & tear on the car and many more things. THAT is where Patreon comes in. Artists and creative types all over have pages where you can contribute as little as $1 a month to help them achieve their goals and get access to so many extras like behind-the-scenes footage, video chats and more.
Each creator lists different reward tiers so you will have access to more and more things for different donations. I also included in mine a way for Patrons to get promo for their small business from me since that is something I am so passionate about.
Even if you do not want to become a patron to anyone today I encourage you to go check out the site, research it a little and see what you think about it. Just think about this... you are constantly viewing YouTube, fb & IG videos for free, those videos generally take time, effort and more, now you can HELP them do so.
Thanks for stopping by and remember it costs you NOTHING to share a post 💚
