There is a whole lot of stuff happening in the world right now. Another mass shooting, a refugee crisis in Europe, “Church” “leaders” are rallying behind Donald Trump, the Pope is having private meetings with Kim Freaking Davis…. Our pets’ HEADS ARE FALLING OFF!!! These are all the sorts of things that are usually right up my ally….
You may or may not have noticed, but I’ve been away from blogging for a little while. These last few weeks have been a tumultuous time in my life…. Long story short, I no longer have a day job, and the next phase of my life is beginning. And this blog is going to continue being an important part of it. I can’t tell you how much I value all of the people who read my blog–the people who share it–the people who comment–the people who are involved in the conversations that take place on my Facebook Page…. You mean a whole lot to me.
I have been blogging here for a little over four years now. I never would have imagined the kind of response I have gotten to the things I write. During that time, I have never made any money with my blog. I have never run ads on my page or anything like that…. I think that I felt like this blog was a ministry for me, and I was worried that if you bring money into “ministry,” things might get cheapened. Or tainted. But that fear has broken off of me. And I have found a way for people who believe in what I’m doing, and want to support me doing it, to be able to do so. It is called Patreon. It’s really cool. It allows people to become patrons for artists and content-creators whom they value. Please this video below to see what it’s about. And then visit my Patreon Page. It’s funny.
I work at a restaurant. I rely on the generosity of strangers all the time. For the past nine years, I worked at a non-profit that relied on grants and donations foundations…. I’ve figured out that it is okay to ask people to support something that they believe in. If this blog is one of those things for you, I’m asking you to consider supporting it. I’m asking you to consider supporting ME. CLICK RIGHT HERE to see the page.
So there’s that…. I’l get back to writing about Jesus, Politics, & Bathroom Humor now.
Love you guys!
