In case you haven’t heard, I have a Patreon page, which allows fans like you to support the artists you like. It’s similar to kickstarter but instead of paying for a one time goal, it’s an ongoing monthly subscription, and based on how much you support you would actually receive rewards, such as sneak peeks into next week’s Frumps comics, and books that can look fantastic on that coffee table of yours.
One feature of Patreon that I have yet to use are the milestones. Once a certain monthly amount is reached then you’ve reached a milestone. Like an achievement on Xbox Live. But I could never come up with a good one until now.
As my RSS subscribers know I offer a smaller version of the strip, as a compromise between offering the strip, but still enticing people to click through to the site itself, as I explained in a previous post. The consensus was that people were pretty happy with the way things were and didn’t mind clicking through.
But I wanted to do better for my fans and provide the full sized strip, and looked into ways of providing that, such as having a banner ad go through with the post. But I wasn’t very keen on adding the banner, so I axed it.
Then I realized I could use Patreon and set this up as my first milestone. So here’s the deal, if we can reach the first milestone (and stay above it) then I will switch the RSS images that go through from a small version to the full sized strip!
Full information can be found here, but for just a buck a month you can help get to that milestone and know that you’re helping support Lance and Virgil run around and cause mayhem.
But just to be clear, even if you don’t become a Patreon support, and we reach the milestone then EVERYONE gets full sized access, not just the ones who subscribed. So maybe you’re a fan but you don’t necessarily feel like you can contribute. No worries. No donation required. This is a voluntary way to help your favourite content creator put out more stuff (that I was probably going to put out anyways).
(see it’s so big I couldn’t even fit the 3rd panel into the blog)
All for as little a buck a month. That’s cash you waste on the vending machine. You’ve been meaning to cut back on the sodas anyways, right? Of course you have. Show Soda he’s not the boss of you and support The Frumps and full sized RSS images! Click here for full details.
