Support πŸ’ͺ


Hello! thanks for clicking on my support page!

Like most people, I juggle blogging and podcasting around freelance work. Each new subscriber (like you!) creates more headspace and time to focus on β€˜the work’ of online publishing.

My various creative projects are currently caught between ‘Too big for a hobby, too small to be a job‘. Each and every new subscriber gets me closer to doing the work I enjoy the most full time.

I don’t like paywalls. Sending you ‘more email‘ from behind the gate seems like part of the problem rather than a solution. I’d rather send you something real – which is why the membership includes a zine.

Third party services like Patreon and Substack were the last successful innovation of Web 2.0. But they are also closed ecosystems. In 2024 social media is collapsing and it’s more important than ever to operate and control your own financial income stack. Which is why I don’t have a presence on any of those ‘creator monetisation’ platforms.

No fuss.


In addition to supporting and maintaining the archive of my public creative work, all paid supporters receive a handmade zine posted via snail mail 4 times a year!

IRL Newsletters are back baby!


Things I’d Like To Do

In addition to blogging, making my weekly personal podcast Permanently Moved, and releasing Experience.Computer monthly, I’d like to focus on producing things for print. Make more zines and make longer thoughtful work.

20k word+ long essays, make some ‘proper’ radio etc. Ideally I’d like to spend double the amount of time on 301 weekly but as it stands, that would be financial suicide.

Below is a list of things that with our support I’d like to do next.

Short Term

  • 5 more in total, and I’ll move to an online payment gateway and use my own subscription infrastructure. This will allow me to build a community and set up a shop and better support the funders of my work.
  • 1 more Β£100/yr subscriber needed to justify purchasing a laser printer
  • 10 more subscribers a month and I can move my subscriptions to a dedicated platform like Memberful
  • 20 more subscribers and I’ll focus on creating one long form podcast each season.
  • 50 More Subscriber and I can do this full time.
  • Make a game!

In Progress & Completed
Thanks To You!

  • Write a book in public on the subject of ‘World Running
  • A blog series on the technical and physical elements of the coming Metaverse
  • Make my first Youtube essay / video about the design and play of SoloRPG journaling games.
  • Upgrade my podcast hosting plan from 50 to 250 MB ($15/mo).
  • Move the blog off shared hosting to a more robust dedicated server. I have … plans for things around here. Like selling stuff. ($16.95/mo)
  • Buy a new camera
  • Branch Out into Video I’d like to start a web show. Come Internet With Me
  • Start a video version of the podcast

Long Term

  • Set up shop infrastructure to sell zines and other self published material
  • Produce more long form essays on the blog with audio readings released as 411 episode.
  • Produce real-time virtual production infrastructure for my shadow puppets.
  • Use the same tools to start making long form youtube essays evolving from 411.
  • 5 episode long podcast series: on subjects like Life and work of Enya, Crohn’s Disease, My Grandad, Punk Rock in Margate.
  • Dream Goal: A podcast series dedicated to table top war games and the people that play them.

Buy me a Beer 🍺

If you like my work, and think that you’d have a good time if we ever hung out in the pub, then feel free to buy me a beer!

I’m always thirsty.

(Beer Prices pegged to the price of a pint of Solaris in my local pub from Bigsmoke Brew Co)
