Dear Friends, Fans, and Purveyors of RPGs,
Many of you know that I have a web site called Sean’s Pick of the Day, where I regularly point out RPG products (and sales, and other special things) over the course of the week. At the end of the week, I collect those Picks on Friday and share them on EN World, arguably one of the most well-known and pervasive sites on the Internet for RPG fans.
Recently, I’ve been invited to expand my relationship with EN World, which I am excited and honored to do, and I’ve been included into the team of columnists that are currently working to build the recently-launched ENN (EN News Network). This is the first development to come out of our still-new EN World Patreon site, and there’s more planned.
Straight up, this is a chance for me to earn a bit more revenue for what I do. I want to be open and honest about that from the start; helping me with what I am presenting here has a direct financial benefit for me, as well as increasing the news and information that fans of gaming receive, and enhancing the promotional opportunities for creators and publishers.
With that in mind, I am reaching out to the community of which I am so proud to be a part of, and I am inviting you all to participate and help me (and my EN World colleagues) in a few ways:
- If you are a publisher, please contact me about special opportunities for product and Kickstarter promotion. You can reach me at the usual email (seanpatfan [at] gmail).
- News and Announcements: We have a special email address – email@example.com – where you can send anything you think is newsworthy or of special interest to the RPG enthusiast’s community. We want to know everything going on, so feel free to share anything you’d like. We cannot guarantee we will share everything we receive, but it’s a simple matter and a moment of time to make sure we have it in our queue. Note that I will be specifically re-broadcasting the various “ENN News Links of the Week” via Sean’s Pick of the Day, ensuring that this information gets even wider viewing and awareness.
- Patreon Support: Of course, we’d greatly appreciate you become a supporter of our Patreon, and there are some pretty cool rewards. Those at the $5 level will get advance previews of special articles, and those who pledge at the $10 level will get a free PDF every month. Of course, the big deal is your helping us to bring you the most and best news and cool information every on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis.
I want to also point out that, with this new arrangement, I will be shifting how I promote Kickstarters. I will first announce Kickstarter (and other crowd-funding efforts) for gaming via news bites on ENN. Then, as per my statement above, they will come out via the ENN News Links on Sean’s Pick of the Day. So, yes, I still want to know about your Kickstarters—keep sending those links along, but feel free to use the firstname.lastname@example.org address now.
Thanks for taking the time to read, and for your continued support. I and my family (especially Riah, who I will be able to afford kibble for now) greatly appreciate it, as do all of my colleagues at EN World.
