If you're unfamiliar, Patreon is a crowd-funding website that works on a recurring donation basis. Rather than donating a lump sum to a particular project, patrons fund artists with small monthly donations. In return, they receive rewards from the artist.

Why is this so wonderful? Because for a single dollar per month, you can help artists create the things you love. Musician and writer Amanda Palmer receives about 33.5k from almost 7,000 patrons for each thing she produces (be it a song, album, or book), and keeps whatever funds are left over (after the cost of actually producing whatever it is) as profit. And for the low price of $36 per year, I get access to all of her art. It's a sweet deal for all involved.
So what does this mean for you? If you choose to support me on Patreon ($1, remember), you'll get more frequent updates of Love Song, The American Spinster, and all future projects. Browse around this amazing platform and see all it has to offer. I think you'll be impressed.
