Amanda Fucking Palmer blogged on boingboing about how and why fans choose to support the artists that they love. It’s a good read, go check it out.
People actually like supporting the artists whose work they like. It makes them feel happy. You don’t have to force them. And if you force them, they don’t feel as good.
This is core to Burning Brigid’s ethos of creating content and letting those who appreciate our work choose how to compensate us. Donate to our Patreon, join our mailing list, pick up our digital downloads when they’re released… we try to present a multitude of options for fans to enable them to show their support.
We’re looking forward to picking up Art of Asking and giving it a read-through.
If you’ve got any other ideas for what we can offer, let us know in the comments.
