Like many important historians over the ages, ya girl is broke. Very sadly, this means that I am often hustling when I should be here, creating the content that you know and tolerate. Many of you lovelies have asked over time exactly how you can help a player such as myself out, and get more stuff in the deal.
Today I am happy to answer that with, well, you can support my patreon.
Access to the blog is and always will be free, because the people need to know about medieval history, but patrons help make more content possible.
In appreciation, for their support, all patrons will receive a patron only monthly medieval history video. Said monthly video will take several forms. These include:
Pubcasts – in which I go drink a pint with another medievalist and we discuss history stuff.
Watch alongs – in which I will watch a terrible “medieval” movie and complain about it, allowing you to synch it up and watch at your own leisure.
Virtual tours – where I will virtually take you around a particular medieval place and tell you about it.
Object discussions – where I will tell you about some medieval thing I have a lady boner for.
Honest to God lectures – I am an actual lecturer. (I know.) I will do some for you sometimes.
Q&A’s – in which I will answer patron questions.
The point is, this is some good and varied content which you can strap to your veins.
Patrons will also receive a monthly round-up of all the history articles and discussions that I enjoyed, as well as sneak peaks of and updates about my upcoming projects.
Because Going Medieval believes that people with more expendable cash aren’t inherently better, all tiers will receive the same access to the same content. It’s up to you to decide how much you can afford and not screw your girl over while she’s out here hustling. The extremely big spenders will, however, receive Pubcast shout outs, cuz you are extremely down for the sesh.
Anyway, if you could see your way to supporting me, I would very much appreciate it. If not, that is cool too! I hope you are enjoying the blog.
