Since my last notice, not quite a month ago, I've posts different options for supporting MYTHIC on the magazine's website. I figured I would post them here as well should anyone not have seen them on social media or the site.
Here's what I wrote there:
These are the current ways to support MYTHIC and bring it back:
PayPal donate button: www.mythicmag.com (You can find the button on the site's sidebar.)
And here's one that could help as well: Paid advertisements in each issue. You can promote your sci-fi and fantasy related books, etc.
Advertisement space: https://www.mythicmag.com/p/advertisement.html
I will resume subscriptions on the website once it's clear when the magazine will return and what will be its frequency. Note: I'm leaning heavily towards bi-monthly publication since this is not quite as intensive as monthly for me given my personal constraints.)
Progress as of today, July 19th, 2022:
The Patreon page: My management of the page has been in consistent, and we've had a lot of turnarounds in terms of subscribers/patrons there. But right now, the monthly support stands at $205. Not terrible at all, but not enough yet. I've set an initial goal of $350.
The GoFundMe: Yep, I set up one and left it alone. So far, we've had about $84 of support there and set a $1,000 goal, but I figured it was good to have a way for people to chip in on a one-time basis at any amount rather than the reoccurring amounts of Patreon.
PayPal Donate button: I've had some support via the PayPal donate button too. Less than $100 at this point. Another great source of one-time support.
Advertising space: I'm not sure what I'm expecting here. It would be great to get enough ad revenue to cover the costs and then some, but maybe I need to get the magazine active again?
