Aww, Feathers on Patreon!
I've got some exciting news guys! Aww, Feathers! is now on Patreon! I decided to kick it off now to give those who want to a chance to be patrons for January. Not sure what Patreon is? Here's what you need to know:
What is this Patreon thing anyway?
Patreon is a way to financially support ongoing projects so content creators can continue doing what they love to do. It's kind of like Kickstarter, only instead of a one time donation, you can pledge to donate a certain amount every month for creators to continue to make new content.
Does this mean you're going to start charging for Aww, Feathers?
No. The comic will still be available online for free for everybody. However, I'm currently not able to update it as often as I'd like to. If we reach certain funding goals, I'll be able to update more frequently, and there will be some goodies along the way for those who help me get there!
How much should I pledge?
As much or as little as you are able! No seriously, even just a dollar a month is a big deal (several thousand times better than ad revenue in fact). And if a bunch of people pledge a small amount, it adds up very quickly. And you can change or cancel your pledge at any time.
What are these "goodies" you mentioned for those who pledge...?
I'm so glad you asked! You can see more details at the Aww, Feathers! Patreon Page here: https://www.patreon.com/awwfeathers.
One of the rewards is a new collectible Aww, Feathers! postcard every month, like the one pictured above! Everyone who pledges at least $5 before the end of December will get the design for January. (Sorry for the short notice!) And there will be a new design next month.
If you have any questions, let me know.
