Well my friends and dear readers, this isn’t exactly something I wanted to do until this site (potentially) got relatively popular, but due to some unforeseeable circumstances, I had to pull the trigger on it. Wizard Dojo is now on Patreon!
I know, I know, it seems kind of pushy to resort to a form of crowdfunding for a site this small, but hear me out. The truth is – as I’ve said before – I really want to branch out my endeavors a bit, including making videos (like YouTube and Twitch stuff), and of course my seemingly never-ending quest to learn game development so that I can make my own video game at some point. But I still very much want to continue reviewing stuff and writing crap here. But life has recently dealt me one of its unexpected low blows, and times are rough.
I decided to make a Patreon now for the simple reason that any little bit helps. I don’t get paid to write these reviews, and I gotta purchase video games and movie tickets with my own dough. Suffice to say less money means less games and movies, and thus, less to write about. With just a little extra help, I can keep things going for Wizard Dojo as is, while also taking care of other matters. And with a little extra extra help, I can begin my other creative endeavors in the near future.
Now, I know I’m not currently in the position to give out any meaningful backer rewards for those who would support me on Patreon, but I will try to provide what I can to backers, and gradually include more rewards as I get a better hang of this Patreon thing (maybe backer-exclusive blogs or something). Because of this, I don’t expect a whole lot of support (I mean, even less so than I would with my current status). But again, any little bit helps.
Oh, and don’t worry, if this Patron thing ever catches on, I will give AfterStory his share of the profits for his contributions. I’m not greedy. Just a bit needy.
If you want to help me continue to produce content for this site, and help me branch out into other endeavors, you can become a Patron here. But you don’t have to. No pressure.
