Asking for help
In the plans for 2016 I wrote:
Ask for help with running costs
A good friend asked if anyone had ever offered to help with the running costs. I said yes, but that I'd politely refused. My friend tells me I'm stupid!
So, as the site gets bigger and costs rise, I'll ask if any regular visitors to Gwulo would like to make a small contribution to help with the running costs. I haven't decided how to do this yet, but Patreon looks like it could help.
I've set up a Patreon page, but before I send it out to newsletter subscribers, I want to ask Gwulo's regular readers and contributors (that's you!) two questions first:
1. If you have any strong feelings that this is a step in the wrong direction, please let me know. The last thing I want to do is turn away the people who've given so much to the site.
2. Please could you let me know if anything on the Patreon page is confusing, or you have any other questions about it. I'd like it to be as clear as possible when I send it out to the larger audience.
Please reply in the comments below, or by email if you prefer. Thank you for your help, and special thanks to patron #1, who has helped a lot with setting this up.
