Mainly because I’ve now got a tremendous legal debt thanks to a certain Jesus-Mythicist asshole, and I’ve got to start bringing in extra revenue to pay that off, especially since we got rid of the obnoxious ads that did provide a feeble revenue stream. I’m trying to think of what I could do that some of you might pay a few bucks for. Some random ideas:
- Ask volunteers to chip in a few bucks per week for meaty science posts on a regular schedule.
- Create a patron-only Discord channel for direct conversation.
- Have a mechanism where patrons can suggest and vote on specific topics for blog posts.
- Ditto for YouTube videos.
- The big one: if I get 10 $1000/month patrons for 6 months…live online lingerie shoot.
That last one would clear up everything.
Anyway, you people think about it, suggest better ideas, and I’ll try to do the same, over the next couple of days. Alternatively, you could just tell me you’re not going to ever pay for something you get for free, so I shouldn’t bother, and I’ll pursue other plans…like selling my janky ol’ plasma for the big payola.
