Got an email from Patreon yesterday saying “Drowned in Sound just became a patron of GoldFlakePaint.”
Kinda wasn’t expecting to see the DiS Patreon account donate to what seems like non-core DiS things such as physical publications by other blogs. I thought my monthly sub was for the upkeep of the forum/site. Not gonna do a kneejerk cancellation, but that email was a surprise.
I guess this makes me feel like enquiring about how the monthly subscription/donations fit into the funding of the site, how funding and finances of the site stand generally, etc.
Feedback appreciated, @sean .
