2001 and Done

By , March 25, 2020

I’m sorry for the length of this post, but I need to cover a lot of information.

This day has been a long time coming. For me, perhaps, too long.

This is the 2001st post on the Zeiger Family Homestead Blog. At this point, I’m saying “2001 and done.” It has a nice alliterative ring to it (of which, as long-time readers know, I’m overly fond). I’d thought about a time milestone, such as last summer’s 10th anniversary (see This Blog Turns 10 Years Old Today) but I blew past that, and I’m unwilling to wait any longer.

This may be a hiatus, or it might be a total shut down. Only time will tell.

But, It’s likely to be permanent, and I need to explain why this is happening:

We’re Launching a Patreon Page

By , February 28, 2019

If all goes according to plan, we will launch a Patreon page for the blog in early March. This will hopefully monetize this blog after nearly 10 years (see The Challenge: Monetize the Blog).

Patreon is a crowdfunding platform that lets enthusiasts of a particular artist (blogger, in this case) contribute regularly to projects and content. Patreon patrons pledge to give a small amount regularly (anywhere from $1 to however much they want) to support an artist or writer and his/her ongoing creativity.

Artists have a couple of options in providing “things,” items of small value sent to patrons for their support. We like this, as we feel like we’re actively offering something for people’s contributions.

Particularly, I like a feature we’re calling A Place at the Table.
