For the past 3 years I have worked hard on this blog, built up a following, set a posting schedule and tried my best to campaign for better options for all of us. I am proud of the blog’s achievements, growing to 1200 Facebook likes and with an overall readership of 25,000 people a year.
Lucy and I have done all of this without earning a penny – the cost of ingredients, giveaways. travel and reviews have all come from our own pocket. One of my goals for the blog was a to set up a way to earn a little bit so that Lucy and I can travel further, campaign harder and create more. All of the money will be going right back into the blog.
I considered using our traffic to set up advertisers or sponsors, and whilst I’m not ruling this out I don’t want our blog to be one big advert for another company, or for you to feel as if our reviews and information posts are biased.
So instead we have set up a Patreon account. Patreon acts as an online “tip jar” – you can give as a much or as little as you like to support us and you will earn extra rewards:
(N.B Patreon does everything in USD but essentially our rewards tiers are 71p, £2.13, £4.98 and £14.23 respectively)
*This next bit is very important!*
I would like to assure those of you who don’t wish to donate that you will still be getting the same content – recipes every Monday and blog posts every Friday. We are not asking you to pay for the service that we are already providing. BUT if you would like to earn the extra rewards above, please do visit our Patreon page to support the blog!
Recipes every Monday, blog posts every Friday! See the previous Monday’s post here.
