So this happened the other day…
With just over two years under my belt, Dungeons & Donuts has over 1000 followers! Some might still call that bush league, but I am mighty pleased and extremely grateful to all of you.
That said, keeping this tumblr going is getting a lot harder lately.
Unlike a lot of other rpg and tabletop game bloggers, the work that I do is primarily image and animated gif based. While I’m sure it’s no more challenging than writing a really well put together post or article is, it is definitely more time consuming.
Also, aside from the occasional commission or bit of contract work, I make no money from this.
My financial situation isn’t dire or anything, but it’s a lot less than ideal. I end up eating more money with this tumblr and its associated projects than I can easily sustain. Which is why I’m asking this…
If I set up a Patreon account, or even just offered a ‘Donation’ link, would any of you, my 1000 followers, consider donating?
I love producing rpg and game related content, and think that Dungeons & Donuts is pretty unique in the rpg blogosphere. I really want to keep at this and produce even more varied projects (video series, vlogs, animations, downloadable adventures and maps, more DIY tutorials, a long-form web comic) but I cannot do so without some kind of support in addition to a day job.
Please let me know what you think, or if you have any questions. If this is something you would be willing to support, please do me a favour and share this as well.
Thank you very much! So very grateful for 1000 followers!
Still waiting on part 2 of your comic. Where is it?
I’ve had a lot of projects, both professional and personal, take precedence. I haven’t been able to work on it as much as I’d like.
Still, I’m very glad to know you’re interested.
I’ll work harder. I’m so bad. I’m sorry.
Hey, is everyone enjoying GenCon right now? Not me, I’m stuck in Toronto, doing things related to being in Toronto. Anyhoo…
My First Character: The second part of this comic is still unfinished. I’ve had a handful of other projects, reviews, and work stuff take precedence. I’m working on it.
Podcast maybe?: Good friend and all around amazing person Natalie Bennett and I are putting together a game related podcast. We’re going to start off by discussing new D&D, how it plays, and what we think of it. If you want questions about the nitty gritty of the game answered, feel free to leave an ask in my inbox.
OSR Con 4: I’m going to be dungeon mastering at OSR Con this month. If you’re in the Toronto area August 23rd, 2014, you can come play some old school D&D. Admission is ‘pay what you can’. I’ll be running Zak S’s upcoming ‘A Red & Pleasant Land’.
