Patreon has been around for quite some time and it seems it works great for both content creators and their fans. I never have seen my blog as a way to make money, neither have I used my game design efforts in that way.
But I know there are readers out there who are interested in supporting our efforts. Patreon seems to be the perfect solution for something like this. You can easily become a Patron of the blog, and make it easier for me (and my fellow team members) to create great content. Patrons will also get the opportunity to help decide which topics I should write about or what game I should review next – if this is something they are interested in.
if you’re interested in becoming a patron, please check out my Patreon page. Thanks!
Usually I avoid this kind of posts, but since I haven’t really written anything since May, I thought it wouldn’t hurt to send a few life signs…
In May I returned to work after being on sick leave for about one and a half years. My coworkers and – to my surprise – my superiors are really helping me out a lot right now and I am slowly getting back into the routine – and it’s actually good to be back!
But this also has it’s drawbacks. At the moment 8 hours of work are still pretty draining. Especially in May I felt emotionally exhausted and tired all the time. That has directly affected my ability to write blog posts and to run roleplaying games on a regular basis.
Often I just don’t have the energy to do anything more complicated than watching movies or playing on my Playstation. Things are slowly getting better, as I get back into the routine, but at the moment I prefer to chill instead of forcing me to be creative.
So what does that mean for the blog? I will probably write more regularly in the future. But at the moment I don’t actually have that much to write about. There are a few products I want to review, but I haven’t had the opportunity to read everything properly yet. But I’ll eventually get to it.
I hope you don’t mind the hiatus.
I just enabled a simple like/dislike voting system, which allows you – the readers – to like/dislike posts. It’s nothing too fancy, but it allows me to track which posts are approved by our readers and which were not so great. If you notice any bugs, or other issues, please let me know in the comments below.
