Okay, so I have this patreon page. Who doesn't, right? It's here: www.patreon.com/spearcarrier

Thing is with this patreon page... I hate this page. I've been using patreon since they'd opened their doors, and their layout model is too close to Facebook and too far away from useful for me to do much with it. At first I tried to use it for exclusive webcomic updates. I soon realized the patreon feed was a mess, much like Facebook, and if anyone wanted to go back in time and enjoy they would have a hard time doing it.

They have absolutely no plans to make it so I can schedule posts for the future. I don't really get to schedule posts in the future for my webcomic, either, but being able to do so is an invaluable tool for webcomic artists. Or people in general.

And then there's the cut they take from the support people send to you. So you get even less by the time they're done than if your people had simply supported you through your webcomic site.

Today I just tried to make it so people could pledge no money at all; just have access. It wouldn't let me. So I ended up doing a small incentive of $2 a month there.

Which is another thing I dislike about Patreon. You can either have the people pay you every month or a certain amount for certain posts. If they're not paying for these posts, they can't see them. Neither of these work for my business model.

What if I get sick again or wrapped up in work and don't update for a month? That's hardly fair to the people who pay to get something from me every month.

And when I post about one of my charms, leveled so folks paying for that every month can get it in the mail, no one else sees it to know there's this charm to get.

Very inefficient.

But I still use it for whatever reason. It has 0 supporters, 0 watchers, and 0 incentive for me to live. -_-  And yet for whatever reason I keep posting updates to it. Sigh.

A lot of the stuff I put up here is for free - you can support my activity by donating points here: spearcarrier.deviantart.com/?g…

I do art for a living. I didn't want to. I wanted to be Indiana Jones. But I do art for a living, sometimes badly. Sometimes well. Sometimes barely.

I have written a book or two, worked on various comics, and think of new stories every day I can't find time to sit down and record. (sighs)

I create Heavenly Bride, a webmanga romance about a celestial dragon who ends up in the body of a vampire. He falls in love with the first girl he meets and spends the entire book worrying about her. Some of the people have wings in it. That might be of note.

There are other projects I do... if you're curious just visit my website.

May beauty and laughter chase after you, overtake you, precede you, and run around you, so that you never lack for either.  May your friends rejoice at your coming, and strangers look at you with interested respect.  May your smiles be frequent and never insincere, may the sun warm and not burn you, may the air smell sweet and light gleam upon the waters on every day of a glorious ride 'round the sun that begins with this... HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
