I joined Patreon early, when it was quite new. At some point I discovered they had used my email to send out invites to people I knew, without my approval. I could not trust the site after that so deleted my account and even though I think it is a great idea, I am unlikely to try them again.

Some people are doing great with Patreon, but if you don't already have a following/ aren't already popular, there isn't much point in joining. Your account just stays very quiet. I did not find much real help or inspiration in how to get any farther with the service. However, if you are popular already, Patreon is a good service to get people to sponsor you.

True fact! Most of our sponsors don't like to go for a monthly subscription. You should try buymeacoffee.com. it is a one-time donation site. Many of my Tumblr mates are getting good supports.
