My Apologies: My Patreon Rewards Are Just Really, Really Behind

We're still on track to do a magazine with this site's Patreon program that will come out by the first Monday of each month, and I have the text of make-up magazines done as well, so those should come out in quick order as well. My apologies. I have no problem with anyone cancelling anything, of course, although I hope people will stay on.

What I can tell you is that having the Patreon money and your support has kept this site alive, and it would have been more than shut down by now, likely between August 1 and October 1 otherwise, for good, as I would have taken a full-time job I was offered out west. I am still young enough to have a few opportunities, but old enough to know they would end everything else. I know that's little consolation to you. I did the site for nine years ad-supported only (and two years for free), and as awesome as that support has been and continues to be vital to my living status it was not enough to transition to Columbus to a job that I thought was going to pay a certain amount of money, paid half of the minimum for a few months and isn't paying anything now. That should change, too, for the better, but this last year has been brutal on that specific front and doesn't improve any time soon. I screwed up.

So thank you. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I'm in the process of making it up to you. I think I'm good for it, but I can certainly only ask you to believe me. I have not come through. If the ship fails to be set right in the next eight weeks with both regular issues and also progress on the make-ups, we'll have another talk about multiple paybacks at my insistence through permanent employment in another field. Until then, I hope you have faith.
