Support the Blog + Become a Patron

Nearly four years have passed since I started blogging, various platforms and blog names later and I have finally settled here with my self-named blog, still creating the same content I started with and much much more.

It has been an incredible journey, with lots of ups and downs and a great deal amount of support in the process and I still feel as though this is just the beginning.

If you have been here since the start you will know this all started with sharing my struggles with my Mental Health and experiences with Anxiety and then later on Depression and most recently BPD. Over time I have incorporated other passions in my life including Fashion & StylePhotography and occasionally Travelling (when I am capable of).

I love creating content in some way shape or form and I have been doing so with no financial reward for a number of years and I never anticipated that it would ever be something that would potentially make me money.

In the last year, I have been presented with some fantastic opportunities to collaborate with some amazing brands and I have been fortunate to also make some money through contributed posts and ads. 

Something I have been playing around with for a while is using the platform Patreon for people to help support the blog.

What is Patreon?

"Patreon is a membership platform that provides business tools for creators to run a subscription content service, as well as ways for artists to build relationships and provide exclusive experiences to their subscribers, or 'patrons.'"

Why Have I Set Up a Patreon Account?

Although, as I said above, yes I do make some money from my blog through ads and collaborations, a lot of my content is created for free and costs me money in the process. So the reason for the creation of a Patreon account is for people to support my creativity and writing through a monthly donation if they wish to and gain some benefits in doing so.

The benefits are small right now but I am working on improving them to give more back to those who choose to support the blog.

This is an ever changing space that is constantly evolving with new ideas and new content so stick around and show your support by becoming a Patron and help shape the future of this blog.

What Will I use the Money For?

Some of the money will go towards living because right now my mental health conditions do limit my ability to work and I need to make sure my bills are paid and I can afford to pay for therapy and medication and also keep my blog online so I can continue sharing my content and my Mental Health story. Other than that everything else will go towards;

  • Being able to get out more and take more photographs and create more photo series.
  • Buying new clothes and outfits to share with you through my Fashion & Style posts.
  • Travelling more and creating more travel posts. 
  • Upgrading my equipment to produce the best content possible.
  • Publishing more content as I will have more time to spend creating content.
