Be the Coolest Cat on Your Block
Hello! Thanks so much for being a CTMQ reader – some of you for over a decade!
You know the drill, so skip the explanation and go straight to Patreon!
CTMQ began as a bit of a lark in September 2006 and has grown over the years to be the top website about (almost) literally everything there is to do in Connecticut. It has grown to be almost too big to describe in any coherent way. Exploring, experiencing, and describing all of things I do for CTMQ has been blast.
I view the whole project as a travelogue… a travelogue that also serves as a trail guide and an insider’s view of Connecticut… with a bit of special needs advocacy, a dash of personal memoir, and a smidgen of everything else.
Thousands of people read the unique content on CTMQ every week – many of you are not even Connecticut residents – and I’ve been happy giving it to you all for free for well over a decade. I’ve never wanted obtrusive ads and I’ve never been one to beg.
But then I learned about Patreon and realized it allows readers to say thanks. To ensure I remain motivated to keep exploring and writing. To maybe “give back” a little bit to someone who has remained true to his mission and goal; to be honest with my opinions, (mostly) factual with my facts, and (hopefully) humorous at times. I hope you agree.
I don’t have a podcast or a YouTube channel, and I don’t have trinkets to sell or give away. You’re merely supporting a creator you enjoy and I think that’s a pretty cool thing. As I become more familiar with Patreon, I can foresee some rewards in the future. And if this is successful, I will certainly be donating a portion of the proceeds to the Smith-Magenis Syndrome Research Foundation, which funds research on my son’s rare syndrome.
For now, I would be humbled if you supported CTMQ! There are many more places to visit, people to meet, and things to do in Connecticut. Let’s keep this thing going!
