Support Wait But Why

If you’re here, it means you either have a desire to support Wait But Why or you’re on some dark procrastination spiral where you’re just clicking every button on this site to avoid working by any means necessary. For those who want to support Wait But Why, thank you! We exist only because of reader support (there are no ads on the site cause ads are gross), and your support goes a long way. Wait But Why is free and will always be free. And you’re allowed to leave this page and reject the concept of supporting the site. We still like you. If you’d like to help us keep doing what we do, there are five great ways:

1) Spread the word. A free way to help us in a massive way is to simply tell your friends about the site and share our articles on social media.

2) Make a small monthly pledge through Patreon. Patreon is a service made for this exact situation. You can click the button below to see our page and my video explainer:

WBW on Patreon

3) Make a one-time donation through PayPal. If monthly pledges aren’t your thing, normal donation works great too.

4) Check out our store. Buy something if you like what’s there (or send us feedback about what should be there if you don’t like anything).

5) Subscribe. The best way for a blog to grow a long-lasting readership is with email subscription. Plus, it’s easier than having to remember to come back to the site again and again or guess exactly when Tim will post each new article. We know how overloaded everyone’s inbox is, so we treat our email list like gold, sending an email only when there’s a new post and almost never for any other reason (and of course, we’d never share your email with anyone).

Thanks for reading, thanks for supporting, and thanks for existing (we needed a third thanks)-

Tim and Andrew
