I had this thought way back then, and it was should I make a patron as a way to get donations when I live stream or support for games I make to help make extra money on the side.
I have thought about this for three years and so. And I think this would be a great way to make some extra cash on the side for projects and future things so I can do stuff and help out other people. I want to be a game dev, but I also want to get a job, which might happen as things are turning around but more or less in the same situation for the time being.
One website I have thought about using is/was Patreon, but I have seen how funny and shady they have been if you wanted to do risque things. I have heard people had issues with the site here and there, and I feel it would be best to avoid them.
But one website I found and grew fond of is Ko-fi or as most people know it the “Buy me a coffee!” website. And this can become a bonus since if I can get Ko-fi up and running, I can by proxy become a Twitch Affiliate via the twitch Program. And this will open up more routes for me, and I think that will be awesome.
And I could make server roles for ko-fi users that donate or sign up which would be great but I will put these ko-fi links in games, on my blog, or on twitch and YouTube where it is not optional to pay but it would be there if you would like to support me. I don’t know when I will have this up and running but if I get it up and going you will see a ko-fi button.
So, this is something I’m hyped for but it will be a while. And it will be worth it, I want to think. When I can get ko-fi up and running, I will make another post. That’s all I want to share. :3
