I have made a momentous decision…. I am going to try and turn RTSL into a job.
Patreon is a website service that allows artists and creators to receive regular donations from supporters.
In the past, I never believed it was possible to make a living from my site and I’ll be honest and say I don’t think full time is possible. Not because of the site itself but because of its incredibly niche content. However, I may be able to make running the site a part-time option and that is my realistic objective, with full-time as the ultimate dream.
I will continue to have donation drives, like the one for The Hammer Cup 2016 prizes etc because ALL of that money is used for buying prizes.
By spending more time on the site, I would be able to update the older mods more quickly, spend time creating new content, like Minute Mod videos for each and every mod, more video reviews and special videos like a round up of each category in the RTSL Awards. Not to mention more podcasts with in-development modders.
I have been inspired by Alex from LambdaGeneration who has some great ideas for running his site and reaching his objectives.
If this doesn’t work out, well at least I tried and I may also explore other gaming-related opportunities.
Who doesn’t want to turn their hobby and the thing they love doing into a full-time occupation?
So, please visit my Patreon page and if you decide to support me, thank you.
