I have a Patreon. It’s an important part of how I make time to write blog posts here. As you may or may not have heard, Patreon is changing how you are charged for supporting people. Instead of you being charged the amount you pledge, and all fees coming out before I see it, you are now charged a cost of 35 cents, plus 29 cents per $10 of your pledge.
So if you pledged $3 to support me, in January you’d be changed $3.44, instead of $3.
And that’s BS.
I don’t control how Patreon charges my patrons, but I do control the cost of my reward levels.
So I have opened new pledge levels, with the same reward as the old ones but which are cheaper by 35 cents plus 29 cents per $10. In other words if you back me at the $2.57 level, you should be changed $3. (I confess I’m not sure how they are rounding things to it might be a cent or two off, but it won’t be an extra 44 cents).
I urge all of you to pick the new pledge levels appropriate for your current level of desire to support me. because I want your support!
But I don’t want you to be gouged!
