That’s… possibly all the ‘cowboy’ I know. Just for the record.

Hello everybody! This is your old pal Eric Burns-White, here to talk about the month of May that just passed and the month of June that’s coming up, rounding up where we’ve been and charting a course for where we’re going, both here on Banter Latte and up on the Patreon. And… for that matter, the free, Patreon-First, and Patreon-Exclusive content that’s actually right here on Banter Latte!

This past month, a number of upgrades to the infrastructure and behind the scenes here at Banter Latte and at the Demiurgency proper finally got completed, allowing for Patreon integration and greatly enhanced publishing options here on the site. That’s also given us the chance to spin up content here, and begin the three stage process of:

The second stage, for the record, is huge. Right now we’re having to do a lot of adjusting and balancing of expenses thanks to the continuing International Covid-19 pandemic. It’s having an impact both on money coming in and on the cost of things we spend that money on. For quite a while I’ve had the luxury to let the Patreon grow in its own time and way, but now things are tighter. By increasing the content available here on Banter Latte and the rewards available to patrons, I’m hoping to get a lot more patrons to chip in — even a dollar a month makes a huge difference as the scale increases.

That’s been one of the things I’ve been really pleased about with the Banter Latte upgrade and revival. As content has begun coming out far more regularly, so too have site visits — not just to the new content, but to legacy content that’s out there. And, we’ve started to see some increases in patronage, and… I’m just humbly grateful to you all.

And like I said, it’s working — we’re within three patrons of hitting our next Goal — and with that comes new Mythology of the Modern World posts each month. I’m happy to see that some of the old myths continue to get regular readers (especially “Dog Reincarnation.” Why “Dog Reincarnation?” I have no idea, but there it is). I’d really like to get back into that cycle — there are sides of my brain that haven’t been used in way too long.

And if you’d like to show support but don’t want to pledge through Patreon, remember you can always buy me a cup of coffee through Ko-Fi or Paypal me directly if you’d prefer! And if you’re not ready for that but want to read the content here on Banter Latte, that’s cool too! It’s here to be read, after all!

In May, we had:

Not bad, huh? Bear in mind — we relaunched halfway through the month of May, so that’s a lot of content with hopefully more on the way!

This upcoming month on Banter Latte, we’re aiming for:

May was great, and June looks like it’ll be better. This is a great time to jump on board the Patreon if you want, and a great time to keep up with Banter Latte!

Thanks all, and have fun!
