We love writing for Road to Epic. We love seeing all your comments, and getting your e-mails, and knowing that we’re actually helping people to make their lives better. It is basically our dream job.
The thing is it takes a lot to support it. We put a lot of time and effort into the researching and writing of our articles. Add to that the cost of maintaining the servers, upgrades as the site grows, and all the other expenses that come along with running a website and things start to add up.
The last thing we want to do is put advertisements on the site in order to help defray the costs of keeping things running. We hate ads. I’m pretty sure nearly everyone hates ads. So instead, we’ve decided we would turn to the people who already love the site the most for support – our fans. You.
We’ve done that by joining Patreon.
Patreon is a way to show your support for your favorite content creators.
You can think of it kind of like a digital tip jar. We love what we do, and whether you support us or not we’ll still be writing articles, doing our little experiments, and helping you on your way to just being more awesome.
However now, if you feel like you’ve really benefited from what we’re doing here at Road to Epic, you can send us a little love as a thank you for any ways we’ve been able to make your life better.
You choose how much money each month you want to toss our way each month and the rest is taken care of for you. Even if it’s just $1 every month, you’re making a huge contribution to helping us be able to keep doing what we’re doing. There’s no obligation to remain a patron, you can stop any time without any penalty (other than the knowledge that we may have cried a little), and you’ll never get charged more than the limits you set.
Why Should I Help?
Beyond all the cool perks we’ve got set up exclusively for patrons to show our appreciation?
We put a lot of time and effort into our articles and are dedicated to making all the content we release as good as we can possibly make it. Your support is what makes us able to create and release better and better content every time. The more support we have the more time we can devote to writing.
We also really hate advertisements. Your support helps keep them off of our site.
Lastly, you get a particular sway over the topics we cover and the content we create. We listen to all of our readers, but we know the ones who love us enough to give up a coffee for us each month are our biggest fans. You have a direct line to us through the Patron feed and we’ll read and answer all your questions, comments, and suggestions.
