For almost a month I have been tossing around the idea of doing tiers on my ko-fi page. I mentioned that ko-fi now offers monthly subscriptions, and someone did subscribe (thank you!) but I figured if I had something more to offer to people, maybe they would subscribe. But how to make it fair to people? Sure, people can subscribe, which “buys me a coffee” once a month as a thank you for writing my blog. And I wholeheartedly appreciate it. But I wanted to do something more. Mary Snyder had the idea for a miniatures club, so why not? I mulled it over, and then mulled some more. I really liked the idea. I even started shopping for cool miniatures. But that was as far as it went.
Then yesterday Jennifer Buxton and I were doing some trouble shooting on ko-if. There are membership options and tier options. Jennifer had membership set up but there was no clear way to tell the membership is there and will give you access to the blog. So we played around some more and I finally pulled the trigger on a miniatures club.
There are membership levels. The first level is $3 a month and is just a thank you to me for doing the blog. And I appreciate it! The second tier is $6 a month and is miniatures club level 1. Every 3 months I will send you a miniature, and it is a thank you for my blog. Tier 3 is $10 a month and every 3 months you will get either 2 miniatures, a super cool miniature, or a handmade miniature. The shipping months are January, April, July, and October.
It is entirely possible that sometime in the future I might add another level or other bonuses randomly. But for now I will start with this. If you are interested in joining my miniatures club, or just supporting my blogging, here is a link to my ko-fi. And did I mentioned Jennifer is opening up her blog to subscribers? That is absolutely worth the $5 a month!
