Join in on the Fun!
Okay, I just want to take a second to invite you all to join in on the Slightly Odd fun over at Patreon! We're trying to build up a community of odd history lovers and we want all of you to be there!
What's great about this whole thing is that we've set up multiple tiers based on the level of interaction that you want. You can choose anything from getting your name here as a beloved patron, getting to vote on the subject that you want to see here next, suggesting your very own stories, or even writing your own guest posts! No matter which level you choose, you'll get totally exclusive posts that you won't be able to find anywhere else, first knowledge about upcoming posts, and some sweet swag!
|These super sweet stickers are only the beginning!|
The goal here is really to create a multimedia
experience where people can interact with each other and share their own
content for everyone else to see. We're foreseeing written posts,
videos, a podcast, and even group outings where we can all meet up in
person for a ghost investigation or history tour! We just need your help
to make it all happen! No matter what your level of patronage is,
you'll always get your name on the site, the exlcusive content, and the swag as a big, heartfelt thank you, along with the feeling of being part of the Slightly Odd community!
If you want to help support the site but don't want a monthly membership, then please consider supporting us on By Me A Coffee!
