I had an interesting Skype call with a college student in Helsinki today. He's doing his thesis on Patreon, specifically in relation to using Patreon as part of my marketing as an author. I'm not sure how he found me (my promotional efforts must be working), but I was honored to be part of it. We had a rather fun and frank discussion about the site and how things work and how I use it, the pros and cons, etc. FYI, I said a lot of nice things about all of my patrons.
