Becoming a Patron

Support an Indie Community...

Writelier is an independent business run by one guy, free-to-join and entirely sustained by its community. We aren't part of an accelerator, we don't have investors, and we didn't receive external funding.

This website is a life's work: it's the full-time job of a single person spending time and money on it every single day of the week. Some features of the website are not free to make it sustainable, so that you, as a member, don't end up becoming the product - which is what happens with free websites. Patrons obtain access to unique features of Writelier to ease the development of their writing habit.

Writelier is an open startup: I operate in full-transparency. You can see what I'm working on from my Trello and Makerlog boards, and I'm very transparent about where your money goes.

Beyond the operational costs, I have to make a living from my work. As of today, I'm still living frugally on my savings. I have about a year left of savings to reach a point where I can cover my living expenses (~$800/month). If I were to fail, it would mean having to find side gigs or a full-time job as an employee. In others words, it would dramatically decrease the time I can spend on growing Writelier. Here is a breakdown of my costs:

  • Operational Costs: $31/month ($25 in server costs, $1 for the domain name, $5 to send automated emails)
  • Basic Living Expenses: $800/month ($500 for housing, $200 for food, $100 for my health insurance and my transportation costs)
  • Goal: $831/month ($9972/year)

If you're not already a patron, consider becoming one. Writelier's mission is to improve your quality of life by helping you write more. You own your content, it's all about empowering you and the people you care about. Freelance writers are being paid between 10 cents and a $1 per word. In one month of Writelier practicing your craft daily, you are creating $600 in value. And that doesn't take into account the friendships you are developing here and how writing will impact your life for the better, so let us help you, join our patrons! :)
