Pledge drive

Hi All,

I’m writing this blog by myself as the sole moderator, and I need your support to be able to keep doing this.

This blog takes a lot of time to create. My current level of posting usually takes me around 8-12 hours a week. (Writing takes a lot of time; so does background research).

When I’m able to write daily, it takes a lot more time than that.

My Patreon currently gets me $150/month to support the blog. That’s not enough to make it sustainable long term. If I’m going to keep doing this, I need more support.

There are currently over 13,000 of you subscribed. If even 1% of you pledged $2/month, that would put me in a much firmer position.

If this blog is important to you, please consider supporting it. The best way is with a recurring Patreon subscription, even if it’s for a small amount. There are a lot of you, and any amount at all helps to make this sustainable.

(If you prefer to make a one-time contribution, you can do that via PayPal to, or an Amazon gift certificate if you don’t like PayPal.)

Thank you to everyone who has contributed or boosted this.

If that post or other things I’ve written has made a difference in your life, please consider subscribing to my Patreon or making a one-time donation via PayPal ( I write this blog by myself, and support from followers enables me to continue devoting time to writing and researching new posts.

Pledge drive update

So far, two people have donated via PayPal and four people have subscribed via Patreon. (Thank you. You guys are awesome.)

I need more support than that to be able to keep doing this long term. I spend at least 10 hours every week writing this blog - and much more time than that if I’m writing complex posts.  (When this blog’s been at its best; I’ve essentially been writing full-time.)

If you feel like this blog helps you and you’re in a position to donate or subscribe, please consider doing so. Any amount at all helps.

Thank you for your support.

Just realized that PayPal link might not work; this one does.
