About Old English Wordhord

Wes hāl!

I started tweeting the Old English Word of the Day back in November 2013. Over time I created a blog, a Facebook page, an Instagram account, and finally this Patreon page, which features special content for $5+ subscribers on Wordhord Wednesdays.

Maintaining the Wordhord takes 2-3 hours each week. I'm also writing an Old English Wordhord book, to which I've been devoting 20 hours a week. Currently the donations of people on Patreon or PayPal are my only income for this work. Additionally, research for these projects requires access to books and resources that can be costly for those without university affiliation.

If you'd like to support my work, you have the chance to become a gold-gifa, a gold-giver or patron (pronounced GOLD-yih-vah). Whatever you can spare is greatly appreciated. Even a dollar a month makes me feel the Old English love. If you'd rather make a 1x donation, you can do so via PayPal: paypal.me/videen.

Þancas!
