First of all, I want to profusely thank everybody who has been supporting this site either via PayPal or Patreon. Our Patreon has more than doubled in the last month and I’m humbled by your support. It’s very gratifying to know that I’m building an audience here that values my work enough to support it. Thank you especially to the folks who have been contributing for a while now; it’s exciting to have a bunch of new supporters but you guys have been there for months now and I’m so grateful for it.
Those of you who are maybe still on the fence about throwing a couple of bucks this way, I get it, but I hope you’ll decide to contribute. Every little bit is needed and appreciated.
Now, with that said, I need to tell you that things are going to be slower than usual here through the holidays. There are three reasons for this:
- It’s the holidays, so some slowdown in posting is inevitable.
- I’m going to be interim editing LobeLog again, for at least a couple of weeks, starting later this week, and while that’s not necessarily a huge commitment, it can be a pretty big one depending on posting volume and how much editing any given day’s submissions need.
- Personal issues. I’m not really prepared to get into details, but we’ve been dealing with some family matters that have required my attention, and that in particular will require me to do some extra traveling beyond what we would normally be doing for the holidays. The traveling and attention aside, it’s been difficult to get in a mindset to write lately because of what’s been going on. The backlog of things I should be working on for LobeLog attests to that.
I won’t be disappearing entirely and plan to try to keep at least doing my nightly conflict roundup on a semi-regular basis. But I didn’t want to severely curtail the frequency of posting around here without providing you all with some explanation after so many of you have just recently signed on to support the site. Thank you again for your support and your patience, and I’ll try to get things back to normal as soon as I can.
