Why I now have a tip jar … …

Tl;dr : There is a ko-fi tip jar here. Please tip if you like my translations.

The long winding part:

I haven’t had a tip jar in the past years despite several people offering to tip. But things have sort of changed in the last two months. I’m a private person so I won’t go into my situation. I just … … am facing an unexpected reduction in income which I did not plan for. So the tip jar is now here because every bit helps. I’ve struggled a bit over the last month and a bit but one always ends up bowing to the power of jingshi (money).

I do have one goal up on that page right now. It is for reaching $100 and maybe I’ll set up early access or something. Any suggestions are welcome.

  1. I understand stupid jingshi problems 🙁 I’m currently in the middle of some myself or I would be tipping you a lot! I’ll make up for it once I can figure out my own end again. I hope your issues are able to resolve soon!

  2. I’d recommend using Patreon as a service so your readers who are able to donate could do it through there. It’s much more accepted service and widely use. I myself have monthly subscription to certain people who are offering services that I like (translations, epub books, etc).
    Some people put like stages of the services ranging from $1-$5/monthly. For a lot of people probably wouldn’t mind put $1/monthly into your translation services. I myself sure wouldn’t mind cause I read all your translations (your choices of the novels are my fav genre/story).

    You have 2k followers, even only 50 of them donated $1/monthly you will achieve half of your goal, so worth to try. Hope everything works out for you.

    1. Second to this. Please use patreon, I’ve finished reading ASSID, ETT and TBAVV and loved it. I’m willing to buy novels fod tens of dollars each month so i can definitely support a few dollars for you. So I prefer a monthly subscription thingy. Loves your translations so keep up the good work!

  3. hi, I know you have a lot of loyal readers to your site but I think after ‘world of cultivation’ ended, the number of visitors might have dropped… you could probably engage in conversations to the commenters on that novel and I am sure that most of them will help you out. I know it does not sound honourable but if you have problems, that is one solution you can look to. I would help you out if my financial situation allowed for it, but I am sorry and I can only give you moral support and loyal readership support. You can also try to make a discord server where the readers can communicate with each other as well. Hope this helps at least even a bit.
