First, I have updated the Caverns, Dungeons, and Beyond funding meter with January’s donations and Patronage funding. Again, a HUGE thank you for those that allow me to be able to change those numbers each month. It means a lot to me, especially during these financially difficult times.
Speaking of which, I am always looking for better ways to say thank you to my Patrons for helping to keep this blog and other projects I undertake going.
In that ongoing vein, something I have started doing is passing along exclusive specials and discounts with my online game store, Caveloot.com. I just started doing this, but indeed, plan on continuing to do so on an ongoing basis in the future. So just another reason to become a Patron!
I feel this is an obligatory post I need to make at the end or start of a New Year!
Donations and Patronage for 2016 just finished coming in, and I reviewed the final pledge levels. We ended up collecting just a few dollars shy of $800.00 this year, which was 50% of the goal!
Now some people would say, but your goal was $1900 to cover 2016’s related expenses, Stile?
I say, yeah. It would have been nice to have hit that, HOWEVER – A community of individuals who find value in the projects and postings I do to help me raise 50% of the year’s expenses. I’ll pick up the other 50% and say, hey, that’s fair! Thank you, everyone, for your continued support and efforts! It’s of immense help, appreciated, and lets me know that my work is valued.
2017 Goal is a bit lighter at $1200.00 for the year. The reason for the reduced goal is that 2016 had some additional software expenses and other items work in and 2017 is very much at this time budgeted for more of maintaining with current costs.

As always thank you for your support, and I hope that I rock this site for you through 2017!
