So, I Went and Made a Patreon

I decided to do it, I went and made a Patreon from The Newest Rant and you can find it here.

If you haven't heard of Patreon, it is basically a website that was made to allow creators of content to have fans chip-in some funds for them. People who make movies, comics, or share their mad ramblings on a popular-culture website (e.g. me) can offer little fun rewards to people who want to contribute and I thought it might be a cool thing to try.

Please note this won't affect what I put on the blog, but if people back my Patreon, depending on the level they choose they can get a behind-the-scenes look at what I'm working on (just a dollar a month), have access to a weekly videos where I will rant about the news from the past seven days (five dollars a month) or for $25 a month you can submit a creation of your own for me to privately review and offer my opinion on--be it a comic, song, web-video, whatever!

I thought making a Patreon was a good idea as since the birth of my son, Clarkson, we have of course focused our expenses towards him, and having fans chip-in makes it easier for me to have the funds to be able to focus on the blog and what it costs to do (e.g. buying stuff to review, time that could be spent working at another job, and so forth).

I don't want anyone who enjoys my blog to feel pressured to contribute, and again, be reassured that my blog itself will never have anything put behind a, "Pay-wall," or such. this Patreon just allows me to provide some cool extras to people and hopefully dedicate even more time time to working on posts! Plus, I will for sure enjoy doing weekly rant videos where I go-off about all the absurdities happening in the world of comics, politics, and our worlds in general.

Again, you can find my Patreon here and thank you to anyone who even  considers becoming a patron.
