So a thing I've seen a bunch of webcomics start doing is patreon campaigns, which - well so far just looks like another thing that I might sign up to in the hopes that I might actually make some money, and then it'll just sit there not making me any money.
Cos, you know, it actually depends on people committing and being like 'YES! i will give you a small quantity of money every time you put up a page or whatever!'
and so far i have a) not that big a readership and b) mostly poor young people like myself as my readers, who are not super keen to throw money at things. as far as i can tell. honestly if i had just one reader who was incredibly loaded and/or incredibly charitable it would be rad. but i... don't think i do. so idk if i should attempt to set a patreon up or not.
OR another thing i might do is make some minicomics which connect to stuff (like, episodes from Dee's past that he doesn't talk about, or something) which you only get to read if you buy them.
idk. that's the kind of thing that pisses me off as a reader, but only because, as previously mentioned, i am a young person with not a heck of a lot of money. also i read a lot of webcomics and ALAS i can't support them ALL without destituting myself. (i assume everybody is in the same boat) ANNNYWAY
do any of you know about patreon, or have any other advice, or just... have thoughts??
IF YOU HAPPEN TO WANT TO GIVE ME MONEY ANYWAY YOU CAN TOTALLY CLICK THE DONATE BUTTON ON MY WEBSITE thebrightsidecomic.com
go click it, it's the daisy which is also my icon here on dA
or you could buy ebooks off my gumroad, or whatever i happen to have on society6 (seriously need to update that stuff; i have IDEAS, i just haven't done
DESPERATELY TRYING TO BE A SELLOUT HERE (not actually, but i keep having to think about MY FUTURE and JOBS and so much of it revolves around MONEY... like those people who tell you 'do what you love and you will MAGICALLY be able to live just fine?' LIES) (and i'm a rich white kid, i'm not actually in trouble at this moment in time) (unless my main issue is i'm not good enough and if i actually did a better job at stuff people would be throwing millions at my door, but i see a lot of shitty stuff that people seem to get money from and i'd like to think i'm at least a LITTLE bit better than some of those things)
