Hi there! Want to find out what happens next? You can find the full story with all the juicy details over at my Patreon.
What is Patreon? you may ask. Well, Patreon is a platform where I upload exclusive content. By paying a small fee per month, you will gain access to loads of content.
It was a big decision for me to set this up but after careful consideration I felt it was the right thing to do. It allows me to be more creative and more honest, sharing stories I would never tell otherwise.
It also allows me to start earning from content creation. If you’ve been following me for a while now, you will know I don’t do create content for the money. I write because I love it! But earning a small income from what I’m passionate about has its benefits. It allows me to travel more and put more effort into my work. I can actually justify spending countless hours planning content!
