This may seem to be a random comment but oh well. I have a Patreon page. It asks for support only if you would like and explains why. http://www.patreon.com/EricaGriffin
. It's nothing criminal and a lot of YouTubers are doing this since adsense went down the crapshoot.
It costs money to make content and to make sure us bloggers stick around we need to make sure we have different forms of income. That is just economics 101. I am far from rich and am doing my best in this YouTube business to succeed. I also cherish you all who watch my content and who support me. It's because of you that I am where I am today! You get all due credit for that!
Some people have a real issue with me having a Patreon for some reason. It has caused hatred for some and searing anger at me. They can simply not support me and move on. That's fine. I'm not begging or forcing the hand of anyone. But no, it's more fun to attack a person for having a Patreon while assuming all kinds of things. Those people can leave.
Why attack someone for how they make a living especially when there is nothing wrong with it? Why attack anyone at all? Cowards who hold the anonymity card sit in their basement and write vicious crap about people. Pay them no attention. They have no power anyhow.
