I am in the early stages of setting up an account at Patreon.com. I just launched my page http://patreon.com/peacenowflower.
I decided to go with the monthly account, but was a little frustrated with a few limitations in setting goals. I wanted the account to be monthly, because I was unsure what else to make it. So on goals it said I needed that amount monthly, when really I just needed it all together. So I decided to stay simple with one goal, but I really have many. If ever I earn through Patreon $79. It will be used for a WordPress Plan to remove ads.
A fellow Blogger has been on Patreon much longer then me, and has not had much success. I pledge him $5 per month. The first month I think I gave him $25. So I do not expect quick success. It is just set up to get started. It could be a way to fund my Blog without ads, and someday help me update programs.
I have a lot to learn about Patreon, but thought I should give it a shot.
Please have a wonderful day,
