breaking up with patreon


i'm just dropping a quick note here to declare publicly (and for my own reference) that i'm no longer using patreon as a way to fund any of my work; this is in response to their recent payment policy changes, which feel too uncomfortably exploitative for me to continue participating in that ecosystem.

a few references from other patreon creators with more specifics:

since i don't rely on patreon for day-to-day expenses, i'm in a good position to just quit taking funding there altogether. that said, i've written up some protocols for ways i'll accept financial support for my work; here's my current funding system.

i'm especially excited by the novelty of tip envelope subscriptions :)
