I Don’t Know How To Use Patreon

The title kind of says it all. I have a Patreon, I used to use it for our old gaming podcast/youtube/streaming community. It was easy to handle then, it made sense and it was simple to execute.

So, I decided to start one for my blog. I was thinking to do so to offset the costs of running the blog, or maybe to help sell myself as a service. There are so many things I could do.

But I honestly don’t know how to do it.

Would people want tangible things like prints and trinkets?

Do people want someone to teach them how to do things in Photoshop? Do they want to learn how to use their cameras? Do they just want someone to come to with questions?

Maybe people just want to use it to have me on retainer (yeah I have that as a rung) to use for editing, etc.

I don’t know, Patreon is a great platform to help creators get paid for their craft. However, it seems like I just have problems putting this all together.
