Support Semi-Rad

I’ve been writing a blog post for Semi-Rad.com every single week since February 2011. More than 3 million people have visited the site, and I hope many of you have gotten a laugh or some inspiration from something I put up on a Thursday morning. If you think reading Semi-Rad is worth a dollar a month, or a few dollars a month, please feel free to kick that in on my Patreon page. I appreciate it, and every donation I get energizes me to keep the site going. Thank you. (If you’d like to make a one-time “tip” or buy me a coffee, I have a Ko-fi page here, or my Venmo is @Semi_Rad if you prefer.)

Here’s a quick 60-second video I did explaining my Patreon campaign:
