Your regularly scheduled programming will not be interrupted, and I don’t have any coffee mugs.
I never enjoy writing these posts, but on the plus side for both of us I do it less than once a year (think of this massive Season Preview as my version of Ken Burns’ “The Civil War”). Yes, it’s time to remind everyone that if they appreciate the massive amount of time that goes into keeping this site going, I do have a few options available to anyone who’d care to pitch in. All of these are at the top of the sidebar:
- Patreon Pledges – Any amount you care to offer per post (with a monthly cap option)
- The Amazon and Amazon UK Store
- Paypal (either one-time pledges, or monthly subscriptions)
- Of course, the ads
Obviously, my sincerely and most heartfelt gratitude to everyone who’s already pitched in to help and/or currently acts as an LiA patron. In addition to the hours I put in, the move to WordPress and private hosting – while overdue and overwhelmingly positive – has incurred some additional admin costs for the site, which is why I’m asking for your support now.
I’ve been so busy trying to get this migration untracked that I haven’t really had time to ponder new and more interesting ways of fundraising – merchandise, vlogs, whatever it might be – but hopefully that will be possible this year. In the meantime it’s the boring same-old, but rest assured – every little bit helps more than you can possibly imagine. Hustle, muscle!
Thank you for your time, your support, and for being visitors and contributors – and look forward to a great year at the new and improved LiA!
