patreon & human nature Show more
I like Patreon. It has been AMAZING for me, genuinely. I'm dug in.
But their newsletter is ... telling. It's all marketing tips and ... my theory is that *they* think (or hope) that someone with a stable, decent income visits patreon with a planned $150/month budget, looks through the projects, and decides how to spread it around.
That's ... a fundamental misunderstanding of how people relate to creators? That's like an affluent white man's approach to the stock market.
