The time has come.
Those who know me or have followed me for some time know I used to write a lot. When I was in university, I had a lot of time on my hands, and a lot of interest in putting some energy into something I loved that wasn’t school.
Naturally, as we get older, life starts to get into the way. I graduated, got a job, moved to a different country, and moved back. I’ve been able to follow tennis, tweet about it, even attend the Toronto tournament as media for five years running. But trying to keep a steady stream of content has been nearly impossible.
Currently, I am working a nightly job that is going to allow me the time to cover tennis including writing, podcasting and tweeting about it. I plan on treating tennis like my second job, both in how I schedule my time and how I produce content. I plan on having recurring posts – the podcast, mailbag, Ponder the Racket and more – as well as other match reports, tactical analysis, and other goofy fun stuff. However, I am asking for your help.
I’ve decided to launch a Patreon campaign to make this whole tennis business possible. If you like what I do and want to see me continue doing it and have a few extra dollars to throw my way, I would be eternally grateful. I’ve set up some simple rewards that look a bit like this –
I plan on doing some exclusive hangouts during bigger matches. If you help in any way, you’re in.
$1 – My never ending love and a shoutout on the podcast (if you’re into that)
$5 – A shoutout on the podcast and on Twitter as well as a guaranteed answer in the weekly mailbag
$8 – A shoutout on the podcast and on Twitter, a guaranteed spot in the mailbag as well as a follow on Twitter. If I reach my goal and start doing two podcasts a week, you’ll be near the top to be an early guest.
$12 – Everything in the $8 package as well as a monthly post topic that you request. Yup, you give me the topic – a match, a player, an idea, anything – and I’ll write a post on it during that month. Limited to 8.
$40 – SPONSOR PACKAGE – A 60 second read during every podcast as well as an ad space on the side of the blog and a monthly shoutout on Twitter.
Any support of any kind is greatly appreciated. Thanks guys. Let’s have an awesome 2016 season.
