I’m on Patreon!

Earlier this month I set up a Patreon. I’d been toying with this idea all year but as Patreon set a date for when they’d implement changes on how the site works I decided it was worth pushing through my doubts and getting it live before hand.

I’ve been tweeting about my Patreon a little bit but tweets do get lost to the wind very easy so it seemed only natural that I have a little blog post with all the handy information on. If you want to head straight to my Patreon you can here.

I’ve been blogging since 2011 and running the book club since 2016. I believe a lot of my readers are content creators themselves and if not you’ve at least seen the amount of time and work I put into my blog and book club. It really is a secondary job that we do for free, and I believe bloggers deserve to be compensated for their hard work. I’ve been consistently putting out content for the past year and want to continue at this pace but the extra support would be beneficial.

So at the end of the book, if you like my content and would like to support me I would be eternally thankful. Just think of this as a way to say thank you, or a tip jar for those who want to and are able.

The money from this Patreon will be going back into helping with bookish content, such as:
๐Ÿ”ฎ making the move to a self-hosted platform
๐Ÿ”ฎ paying for domain name
๐Ÿ”ฎ help when posting bookish packages (trades, gifts, or giveaways)
๐Ÿ”ฎ help with transport costs for bookish events, which create content
These will all help me put back into the community and ease some of the day to day worries that can be had.

Again, I just want to say a big thank you to anyone who is considering supporting me or even just reading this. It really does mean a lot, I’ll continue to create content either way but Patreon allows me to have a platform to potentionally do so a little easier. Ultimately nothing will be changing here.

๐Ÿฒ I’ll also send 1 hand written letter with personalised book recommendations and tea (gotta keep it on brand) to those who’ve supported for 3+ months.


As my Patreon is still new I haven’t wanted to go overboard with creating content for it as I’d essentially be talking to an empty room. But I have already posted 4 blog posts there early (in fact tomorrows blog post can be read there, and another post that wont be live on the blog till the 27th May), a Priority Post Poll, Behind the Scenes on updates for BBB, and a Sneak Peek for upcoming blog and bookstagram posts

Lastly, thank you for giving this a read but mostly I want to remind readers that nothing will be changing here and to only consider Patreon as a way to say thank you if you can.

Feel free to let me know any feedback

  1. Thatโ€™s neat!!
    I love all the little things you set up for the donors, and I totally agree that we deserve a compensation; even if not a ยซย salaryย ยป per say.. this is even more deserving when working with authors/blog tours/etc. As it is such hard work!

    I actually thought of doing something similar to pay for self-hosting.. but technically, I guess I couldโ€™ve taken my tips from work ๐Ÿ˜‚ I just.. idk, I felt wierd about that as although we are all working hard for our hobby, I didnโ€™t really felt as deserving?
    You are everywhere on discord and helping so many people ! I really wish you the best and that itโ€™d work great for you โค๏ธโค๏ธ

  2. Looking forward to seeing where your blog goes from here! I have always loved reading your content, and I am excited to see more from you! Thanks for always being willing to help smaller bloggers with your knowledge and support!
