Hoo-Boy... this is embarrassing. I didn't know anything about how Patreon normally works -- the reward thing, the community thing, etcetering -- before I got here. Anyways...


See, apparently I'm supposed to offer you "incentives" of some sort via a system of "tiers." More money = better incentive. 


Unlike a PBS Saturday evening begathon, I've no tchotchkes to offer in exchange for your support. No collections of some geezers hit (and otherwise) songs that you've been listening to for decades.


Just my writing.    


However...


If you're a a bit of a crank like me, you might find my website, TheFlyoverlandCrank.com, a rewarding experience.


Except for a limited presence by Amazon, no advertising. No clickbait. No pop-ups. No coffee mugs for sale. Limited links and even less pretty pictures. My words stand (or fall) on their own. 


You can sign up to get my column (some philistines call them blog posts) by email every Sunday morning if you want but I won't sell your address. 


A pop-up will never appear out of the electronic ether suggesting that you do this or that, or begging you to WAIT! if it looks like you're leaving.   


Also, I've got about 150 easily accessed columns archived there, and I now publish under a creative commons license so you can re-publish my stuff anywhere you'd like. 


I publish a new column every Saturday evening at 7:11 (PM & ET). 


And as for social media... well, with the exception of the The Flyoverland Crank's Facebook page -- where I announce new columns on Sunday's and regularly post links to interesting things  -- I'm not very social, electronically speaking. I prefer to do my socializing in meatspace. 


You'll be spared the burden of notifications, emails, tweets, texts, podcasts, YouTube videos, Instagrams, etceteragrams, ad infinitum, ad nauseam. 


Granted, I'm biased, but I think I'm offering all sorts of rewards, particularly to my fellow cranks.   


For a buck a month you can support an aspiring writer. You'll be able to sleep soundly at night without feeling guilty about (hopefully) enjoying my work for free. 


If at some point I make you mad or you just don't think I'm worth a buck a month you can cancel at any time. (Don't worry about me, I'll be okay. ) 


Thanks if you donate. Thanks anyways if you don't. If you don't, please share my work to alleviate your no doubt debilitating guilt.


Oh, and if you do donate, you'll get access to a members only section on my Patreon page where I post the occasional random randomness.
