Sorry, field operatives. It seems I’ve hit a bit of a creative slump this week in terms of writing. I knew I shouldn’t have wasted all my creative energy on making that HUGE ground sirloin burger stuffed with mozzarella and bacon and topped with fried pastrami, a parmesan cheese crisp, and pickles.
To be fair though, it WAS an intensely delicious burger.
That said, I DID vow that I was going to try to find new ways to grow and expand this little project of mine while better supporting myself. And by gum, I’m making progress.
See, I’ve been wanting to set up a way for readers to support my writings for some time without having to strongarm them into a subscription service or forcing me into a rigid schedule – both directly opposing my laissez-faire approach to business practices.
So, I’ve finally decided to go a different route; you can just buy me a coffee!
Ko-Fi is, in essence, a digital tip jar. If you enjoy reading my brain droppings every week, you can go to my Ko-Fi page at ko-fi.com/awkwardagent to leave some scratch to show your appreciation. You can give as much or as little as you feel my weekly thought dumps are worth (in three dollar increments) as often as you deem appropriate. No subscriptions, no hassling, just direct support for the kind of semi-serious, occasionally geeky, thought-provoking writing you enjoy reading and I enjoy writing.
We’ll be back on schedule next week. In the meantime, please give my other articles a look-see. Last week’s offering on the horrible misunderstanding between the drag and transgender communities got a lot of love, so I encourage you to give that a look. And if you enjoyed that and other articles, please consider donating to my Ko-Fi page to support more good stuff.
Thank you all for your continued support!
