Suspending PatreonPosted on 02 Sep 2019
I originally wrote a version of this post on Patreon itself but suspending my page hides my posts on there. Oops.
There’s been a lot of change for me over the past year or two, in real life and as a member of the free software community (like my recent joining of Purism), that has shifted my focus away from why I originally launched a Patreon, so I felt it was time to deactivate my creator page.
The support I got on Patreon for my humble projects and community participation over the many months my page was active will always be much appreciated! Having a Patreon (or some other kind of small recurring financial support service) as a free software contributor fueled not only my ability to contribution but my enthusiasm for free software. Support for small independent free software developers, designers, contributors and projects from folks in the community (not just through things like Patreon) goes a long way and I look forward to shifting into a more supportive role myself.
I’m going forward with gratitude to the community, so much thanks to all the folks who were my patrons. Go forth and spread the love! ❤️
