I’ve been a bit slow to update my blog so I’m in the process of adding some new posts for the two podcasts I’ve published since the world changed.
I’m doing daily vlogs and I’m increasing my interaction on my YouTube channel and Patreon space so that we can support each other as we stay at home to save lives.
I’m lucky. Very lucky. I have a home-based business that I can keep going at the moment and my Etsy shop will remain open. I hope to sustain myself and my son through this crisis by generating enough income from my Etsy sales, Patreon income and a few extras, like ad revenue from YouTube and from those generous enough to buy me a coffee through my Kofi page.
Its not much but I can do a little to keep the economy going (drop in the ocean seems to spring to mind) but at least I will be helping to support the local Post Office in Snaith, which has had the double whammy of our local floods and now the Covid-19 situation to cope with. Its only a tiny PO so my drop and go parcels, which I will carry on taking once a week, is quite significant for them at least.
You can listen to me talking more about my plans in Episode 96:
You can get straight to the playlist for the daily vlogs by clicking here or click on the image below:
I’ve also published Episode 97 of the podcast – which was also daily vlog 005. I can’t imagine anyone wanting two doses of me in one day haha…
Ways you can support me (if you’d like)
Have a browse in my Etsy shop and see if any of my yarns tickle your fancy.
Join me on Patreon with a subscription of a few $ a month and get access to Patreon-only content. During the Covid-19 crisis I’ll be running regular virtual meet ups for my $6 a month Patrons.
Buy me a £3 coffee through Ko-fi. I’m investing half of all coffee money and 10% of my Patreon income into craft-based businesses in areas of the world struggling with poverty. The projects are all through www.kiva.org and you can read more about them here.
The costs-you-nothing options
Just click on one of the ads in the right margin – I get a few pence per click and it doesn’t cost you anything.
If you are buying anything through Amazon, use this links below to start browsing. Again, I get a few pence towards an Amazon purchase and it adds nothing to your item price.
Subscribe to my newsletter (fill in the box top right), my YouTube channel and follow me on Instagram. A few likes or a quick comment on social media are always very welcome and help my posts and videos to be seen by more people 🙂
And just so you know… my posts occasionally feature sponsored and affiliate links. This costs you nothing but helps towards the expenses of hosting my blog xxx
