Pardon the amount of posts today. Had a bit more in me than usual.
A few months ago I mentioned that I’m going to work on cleaning up a few things. Stupidity Hole needs a bit of work and so it’s time that that will kick in. The work will mainly be relegated to reducing the amount of space used but there will be other things changed around that may or may not be noticed. Considering as to how much stuff is here, it’ll likely take a while but the work will be worth it and hopefully lead to some sort of improvement.
I’ve updated some of the links and information on the “About” page as a couple of things there were out of date.
The main reason for this update post, however, is the following:
Over the past few days you’ve likely noticed my including links to Cutlure Eater‘s Patreon page, as well as links to prints of photos in my posts. When I added a link to Redbubble on the side of Stupidity Hole I mentioned that I wasn’t looking to push it and it was there if anyone was looking to buy any of my work. When I’m going back through everything I’ll double-check to make sure that is what I said, but as far as I’m aware at the moment, that is what I said.
I’m going to start pushing my photos being purchasable as well as Culture Eater‘s Patreon somewhat-aggressively.
My colleague and I are working on growing Culture Eater as we believe we’ve a fair bit to offer. Recently we took on paid staff and as the funds to pay them are coming out of our pockets our budget is low. The Patreon exists in order to take the pressure of frequently producing work ourselves whilst still allowing for a greater deal of content. More people writing means greater variability in voices and also content that is consistently of a good quality.
In addition to this, obviously the more supporters we have the pressure on our pockets reduces.
In relation to pushing photos being purchasable; despite the amount of money selling them generates, it further reduces financial pressure.
Stupidity Hole takes a lot of time which may not mean much as, let’s face it; it’s not exactly a great blog. I don’t mind investing the time into it, but I’d much rather be able to spend more time working hard on both it and Culture Eater without having to worry as much about working elsewhere. I’d more easily be able to work on producing stuff that’s of a higher quality were I able to focus more on them.
Please check these out and consider supporting, or if not then at least sharing the links with people.
Thank you for your time.
