— About Mike's Gaming Trove —
Mike's Gaming Trove talks about high-level video game concepts and philosophies. Once a week (or so), I publish a written piece to the site. This "hopefully" provides some incentive to support the project. I choose topics that I find are under-represented in games journalism because... (1) I'm bad at coming up with "hot takes," and (2) my somewhat-delayed publishing schedule ensures I'm never on-time to the party.
The site is also ad-free. To me, ads lessen the impact some more "touchy" pieces may pack, and so I decided from day-one that this project would be funded by its readers. If you have the means to contribute, I'd welcome a donation through PayPal. If not, that's okay too. The effort I put into the project is proportional to my predicted return. I'll simply write less given a smaller return. Conversely, that means more financial support gives way to more content.
