Mostly of interest to people who supported me on Patreon, though I'm also posting this here since the links in past posts to my Patreon page won't work any more (and I don't know of a quick way to edit them to reflect that.)

I've reverted my Patreon account to patron-only status and will no longer be accepting donations via Patreon. Having a Patreon was a good experiment and I'm glad I tried it; with this year's regression in US politics, I've decided that my limited time for activism should be spent primarily on things that aren't writing. I don't intend to stop writing blog posts, but I also don't intend to keep writing at a rate that justifies having a monthly Patreon account. In addition, I just passed my one-year anniversary working at [big company] as an engineer, and (unless something changes) don't have any immediate plans to leave. This both affects the amount of time/energy I have for writing, as well as my comfort level being paid regularly for my writing regardless of how much I produce.

It means more to me than I can say to have people recognize my work in this way, so if you supported me at some point during the past 13 months, thank you. If you're looking for other creators to support instead, I recommend Amy Dentata, Katherine Cross, Sarah Sharp, and Sophie Labelle (creator of the Assigned Male comic strip).

I believe that nobody will be charged for January, but if I'm wrong about that, I will donate all proceeds to charity (as I did for December).

Thanks for the link to Sophie Labelle - I'd never run across the comic and I just devoured the archive, it's so wonderful.
