Welcome to the Unwritten Histories Blog's Patreon page! My name is Andrea Eidinger, and I am creator, writer, and editor of Unwritten Histories. When I first started Unwritten Histories, my goal was to write a blog that would de-mystify the field and profession of history. But over the past year, the blog has grown to become a hub of Canadian history content online! I would love nothing more than to continue working on this blog and seeing it grow. But to do that, I need your help! 

What is Patreon and How Does it Work?

Patreon is essentially on online version of those PBS pledge drives you might have seen on tv. Each month*, patrons make a small regular payment (in $US) via your credit card or PayPal. In return, you'll receive rewards based on your level of support. 

*(However, if you would prefer to make a one-time donation, using either your credit card or Paypal, please use the donation button at the top right of by blog at unwrittenhistories.com).

What Your Patronage Will Pay For

Webhosting: Unwritten Histories is a Wordpress blog. Since I don't have my own server, I host the site through Bluehost. This costs money, as does  maintaining the rights to the domain name of unwrittenhistories.com. I also have to pay in order to use certain tools, Hootsuite, Buffer, and IFTT, that help me to create the roundup each week. 

Labour: At the moment, Unwritten Histories is a labour of love; I do all of the writing, editing, content curating, social media posting, and web design myself. But I don't get paid for any of the work that I do! In order to keep the content free and advertising to a minimum, I need to have a reliable source of income.

Expansion: While Unwritten Histories is limited to a blog that posts twice per week at the moment, I do have plans to expand! I would like to add an additional original blog post per week to begin with. I am also working on developing a database of scholarly Canadian history content as well as a database of Canadian archives. I would also love to start a podcast where I explore "unwritten" aspects of Canada's history!

At this level, I'll be able to spend more time developing my Canadian history publications database, and investigate the possibility of setting it up as an independent website.
