Okay here's why I set up this Patreon account: has been online and useful to millions of visitors over the past 10 years.
I have put a huge lot of love (and time...) into the development, maintenance, and constant improvement of the tool.
While at first, it was purely a hobby, over the years, it has become more and more professional. With user tests, advanced analytics, more features and more simplicity (at the same time, yes!), my personal sense of perfection cost me way more time than it ever made matching revenue. Plus - my world grew from a single young man to a father with a fantastic wife and more and more children...

Obviously, I could shut down the service anytime.
However, I know from countless personal emails that people care.
So the goal was for the site to be sustainable financially.
I started numerous experiments to earn money passively (ads, affiliate links etc.) as well as actively (premium service, special purpose offers, etc.).
While some people didn't like it (as an internet user, I hate ads myself...), it also never made any amount of money that would really sustain the further development and maintenance of the tool.

Now, Patreon has surfaced on my radar, and I'd love to grab this chance for the fans to chip in actively to make the service sustainable and better every month.

On, let's establish a continuous goal: for every 100$ a month that come in, another hour of ad-free service will we all get. So once we hit 100$ monthly, one hour per day will be ad-free for everyone using At 200$, it will be two hours, at 500$ 5 hours, etc. Eventually, all ads will be gone from

For early adopters, there will be ways to even reduce the ads on an individual basis before we reach this goal.

Thank you for reading this, and thanks for your support!!!
