Patreon, YouTube, and Facebook... Oh My!

Hey everybody

I realise it's been a bit quiet around these parts recently, but Always Board Never Boring is a little bit like a swan: On the surface, everything is calm and serene, and it doesn't look like much is happening. But underneath...

Underneath, I'm a seething ball of hatred that wants to break your arm.


That doesn't seem right.

Okay. So, the point is, there haven't been many updates here on the blog recently, but that doesn't mean I haven't been a busy little beaver...


I thought I was a swan.

I shouldn't do these updates when I'm tired.

I'll start again...

Hey everybody! Want to know what I've been up to recently. The answer is, "Loadsa stuff."

First of all, I've been trying to get my Patreon up and running. So far, running isn't really the right word. Limping isn't really the right word either.

Lying down for a nap?

I dunno. I poked it with a stick earlier and it let out a faint groan.

The idea behind the Patreon was to create a way to monetise this site, so I didn't have to include adverts and that sort of stuff. I really wanted to generate a little bit of extra income so I had money to purchase games if people made requests or whatever. At the moment, I do receive requests for reviews, but as I'm entirely self-funded, usually I'm not in a position to meet those requests.

While the main benefit of becoming a patron is getting a warm, fuzzy feeling, and giving me a little bit of breathing room to create my written content, there's also some cool advantages. You get access to some patron-only videos, you get your name listed here on the blog, and if you chip in at least $3 you get access to printable PDFs of my painting guides.

If you'd like to know more, I would really, really appreciate it if you'd swing by the page to take a look:

As videos are now a part of my thing on Patreon, I've created a YouTube account for Always Board Never Boring. It's full of all kinds of stuff. Only recently, I published a five-part series dedicated to the new Warhammer 40,000 starter set, First Strike. You should totally check it out (it's not a patron exclusive, so it won't cost you anything):

Finally, I've been chucking all kinds of crazy at my (relatively) new Facebook page. Lots of "behind the scenes" stuff, pictures of my new acquisitions, and some news from the world of games that made me get all excited. Would be great if you would follow me there.

And, I guess that's it.

I'm sorry things have been a little slow here, and I'm a bit behind on my reviews. I do have a review that should be going live this week, and another one over the weekend. Bear with me, and I'll try to get back on track ASAP.

Now that's sorted, I'm off to build a dam...

Swim in the lake?
