In April 2021, we will be announcing some major changes to our platform. (Teaser: “The Way of Improvement Leads Home blog and podcast are not going away). Our supporters will learn about these changes in a couple of weeks through a patron-only announcement at our Patreon site and then we will make a general announcement here at the blog.
The transition will require a much stronger support base. When I started The Way of Improvement Leads Home, I told myself I would never clutter the site with ads. (The podcast is part of a network that requires ads. We make less than ten dollars a month on those ads). I also wanted to remain independent, so I have regularly turned down invitations to join larger blogging networks that pay bloggers. Instead, I decided to help fund our work through Patreon. So over the course of the next months you will see more of these fundraising posts. I know they can sometimes be annoying, but we’ve decided that it is the least-intrusive way to move forward.
If you have benefited from our writing and podcasts over the years, please consider becoming a supporter through Patreon. Click here to get started. Right now you can support us for as little as $1 a month or as much as $100 a month.
And yes, mugs and signed books are still available for patrons! This month we also started providing Patron-only content and giveaways.
And for our loyal patrons: THANK YOU for your ongoing support!
