Website and Newsletter Updates

I have some exciting news to share regarding my newsletter and paid content. After careful consideration, I’ve decided to transition away from platforms like Substack, Ko-fi, and Patreon. Here’s what this means and how it will benefit you:

What’s Changing?

  1. Centralized Content: All my newsletters and premium content will now be hosted exclusively on my website, This includes all the content you’ve enjoyed on Substack, Ko-fi, and Patreon.
  2. Newsletter Updates: If you’re a free subscriber, you’ll continue to receive newsletters, but they will now come directly from my website. No action is needed on your part—just keep an eye out for emails from instead of Substack.
  3. Premium Content Access: When your current subscription period ends for paid subscribers, you’ll receive an email prompting you to renew your subscription on my website. Unfortunately, you’ll need to re-enter your billing information due to technical limitations. I apologize for this extra step, but it ensures your payment details remain secure.

Why the Change?

This move allows me to focus more on creating quality content and less on managing different platforms. Each platform (Substack, Patreon, Ko-fi) has unique features, but synchronizing content across them has been challenging. By consolidating everything on my own site, I can offer more and organize it exactly how I want.

How You Can Help

Your support has been invaluable, and I hope you continue to enjoy the content I produce. Here’s how you can help during this transition:

  • Renew Your Subscription: When prompted, please renew your subscription on my website to continue accessing premium content.
  • Spread the Word: If you know others who enjoy my content, let them know about this transition.
  • Provide Feedback: Your feedback is crucial. Let me know what you think about the new setup and any features you’d like to see.

Stay tuned for more updates and exciting content coming your way!
