Hi y'all,

I've been considering starting a Patreon account and to that end, I'm mulling over the types of perks to offer at various levels.

Any suggestions?

Should probably ask people that you know might consider subscribing to your Patreon.

It's rather difficult unless there is a specific course behind your Patreon page that will make people support you.

I thought you might be one candidate, bauss. I know we've discussed GtkD on at least one occasion on this forum.

As for where to find other people I know who might be interested... I've got this forum, the Reddit D Programming feed, and the forum over on GtkD.org... Oh. And Gnome Discourse... and, of course, the Facebook group I started.  I don't know who else would potentially be my audience.

Audience building has been slow going, mostly—I think—because D and GtkD aren't exactly mainstream yet. Part of my goal is, of course, to help change this.

Can you elaborate on this? I'm not really clear on what you mean by 'course.'

Yup, too true. I considered the Learn sub-forum, but this seemed more like an announce-y thing to me. Perhaps the moderator can step in and give me some guidance as to whether this thread should (or even can) be moved.

Thanks for you feedback, bauss.

I might chip in at some point.

Sharing posts to Reddit etc. might be a way to gain audience.

My bad for the typo. Meant "cause"

I think your content is valuable and has potential for attractive more people.

Thanks, Aberba. Is it okay if I quote you?
