All About Anime has a Patreon Account which you can see over here. I thought long and hard about this, then I debated it with myself a little more. I do not expect to be paid to do this. I love blogging, honestly and truly I do, even without the aspect of earning money from this.
So why did I get a Patreon account?
There are a few reasons as to why I eventually decided to get an account. Firstly I debated mainly because I do not want to seem like I am after the money. That is not why I set up the account. To me any money earned from this, if any at all would be a bonus, an asset, not a reason. That was hard to wrap my head and heart around. I decided to go ahead and set it up because the exchange rate is in my favour with this one. That is not the only reason, I swear! However, at R13 to $1 that is not a bad conversion rate. If someone was generous enough to pledge just $8 a month that would mean an extra R100 for me to invest into AAA.
Where will the money go?
As I mentioned in the reason for creating the Patreon account, the money will be invested into AAA. So that means I will be able to save up and actually buy a domain for the site which in itself will be quite the achievement. Also I will be able properly promote my blog which will make it grow in the right way. Plus I will be able to do some awesome stuff for and with you guys, like give-aways for example.
Should I be lucky enough I will be able to get a decent editing and designing software that I can actually create decent graphics and edit videos the way I really want to. There are more expenses involved than I had originally thought and they are tough to keep up with. Yet I keep wanting to improve and it is frustrating to feel like I am held back because of financial constraints.
So what is in it for you?
For one a better experience with All About Anime. Plus for each bracket I have set up select bonuses for the person. To see what those are however you will need to visit my Patreon account.
On a completely serious note, I would honestly like to say thank you for all of your support and encouragement all this time. Through my bad days you have made me smile when I thought I had forgotten how. With the difficult days reading your messages and comments gave me the energy to push through and return a bounce to my step. On the good days you made them even better. Yet most of all, thank you for exploring my blog and reading my thoughts and interacting, it has meant so much more than I could ever properly convey and for that I am deeply touched and grateful. So to you my dear reader and followers you are a big part of why I am able to carry on and why I have managed to get so far!
