So, I’m jobless now… welcome my life as Hikkikomori –NOT!
So it’s mean what? More chapters per week? NOT—well, maybe? Just hear me out first.
Anyway, I tried to look at the positive side of this event. I wonder if I should look for a new side job? But it will be hard to find someone who will pay me that well, or I could use this moment to start my own business. That would be a valid option too.
Anyway, there are several things I could do for now (which will directly affect this translation project), and the good thing, I almost catch up in LDM and PMZ latest chapter, which mean I could slow it down with the translation soon, or I could take up a new project.
Or I could open a new page in my life and started chasing my passion. Anyway, I still don’t know which direction I should take, for now, I’m a bit confused too…
The question is boils down to one sentence “how far you wanna go? How much you wanna risk?” well, since I lost my main source of income, I guess I could take a bigger risk.
And after thinking about this (and not for a bit), I decided to change my Patreon policy.
Up until now, I did this project as fun. I really care not about the income, which is why you never see I locked some chapter behind the Patreon membership, which I would do now(sorry?), but don’t worry, I will still be giving regular updates, and even when a series is going on hiatus or ended, the update will be constant for that series, which mean you don’t need to become a patron, but your chapter will be posted 2 weeks late compared to the chapter in my Patreon. And how about the ko-fi user? I will email the chapters directly. Worry not.
And IF by some miracle or something, my Patreon goes beyond $300 per month, I will remove all ads on this site. I meant it. To be honest, I’m not really comfortable putting ads on this site, but the revenue is too tempting, seriously.
Why 300$ tho? That’s how much I made in my part-time job per month, including the tips people gave me.
Also, Patreon won’t be exclusively about translation. I will start posting some (maybe) lewd illustrations or comics I made. Yeah, that’s one passion I talked about, and I think I will seriously investing my time in it.
So, yeah, this will be a new page of my life, a new direction, which I still don’t know.
Also, let me thank you to my long-life Patreon: “Karl_J” and “E” both of you been with me since… forever? And I thank you for that. It’s not about the money, it’s about how you keep accompany me all these months, thanks won’t be enough to convey my feelings, but still, some things need to be said.
And to my newer Patreon: thank you, you don’t know how much it meant for me to see new support on the page.
To my faithful “ko-fi supporter” (literally their name): damn, man, you are literally the one and only person who constantly gave me ko-fi, and I can’t thank you enough. And tity I thank you too!
I literally only had that 4 people to thank you for, since all my patreon is going away for some reason? well, I still thankful to my past patreon tho, but only those four are still here with me for almost a year.
That’s all for now, thank you for reading this.
My Patreon policy will change. There will be a Patreon-locked chapter. (ko-fi donator will get it via email)
But the chapter will eventually be posted to the main site, which means you don’t need to be Patreon.
Bonus: I buy this using my part-time job money and your donation, I can’t thank you guys enough.
I hope that it will all work out for you, good luck and stay safe. 🙂
