Patreon - Now My Wife Understands Too Well

So, I read last night's Patreon post to my wife prior to actually posting it as I wanted to get the feedback of someone not all that familiar with crowdfunding. She understands Kickstarter well enough as see sees the occasional package arrive at our door, but Patreon was something totally new to her.

My wife: So, it's basically a tip jar that the community, whatever community, puts into. If you tip more, you might get some extra perks but in the end, everyone, even those that don't tip, get the same basic experience.

Me: Exactly!

My Wife: And if that experience sucks, I can withhold my tip in the future. So, you better keep up the quality or you won't get tipped.

Me: Yep. You have the concept down pretty well.

My Wife: So, if The Tavern had a tip jar, and there was some crazy perk level of $50 or so where your wife got to pick something from your game collection and ship it to a backer, that could work. Actually, it sounds like fun!

Me: Errrrrrrr

My Wife: Like your Tunnels and Trolls stuff. You have two of those falling apart orange boxes. Why two? Just think of what we could clear out of storage!

Yeah, she understands almost too well. Hell, she's almost sold me on not funding The Tavern with Patreon. Heh.

    3. It's a good thing my own wife doesn't read this stuff. You guys are totally and awesomely hijacking loads of stuff. It's like the Legion of Doom for bloggers.

  2. I'm thinking about doing one for recipes and videos but I'm still in the too chicken shit, stages. But Tim's a big support in that area and he keeps bugging me.

    I love that you wrote about your wife. Fun post.

    Hope you start one up for yourself. Don't wait forever like me.

    1. Rach is thinking about doing youtube videos for beauty tips. And yes, she is chickenshit too ;)

      She's been very supportive of my hobby and my blogging but she and my son tag team me about my gaming collection on a fairy regular basis

    2. Rachel sounds supportive, which is super cool. My email is on the side of my blog, and attached to this comment, if you get them in email. She can reach me anytime. Maybe we can help each other not be so chickenshit.

  3. Oh god, I fear for you two. Now Rachel and Ivy will be ganging up on you both. Thank goodness my wife never gets on here.
