Option 1: Share With Others
Are you active on social media? Do you like to tell people you know about things you’re enjoying? Then please share links to posts and pages here on Somewhere in Japan. It’s simple, easy, free, and really helps to increase the visibility of this site, as well as improve search engine rankings.
Every share is a signal boost that helps me reach a larger audience.
Option 2: Make a One-Time or Recurring Contribution
Currently, there are two ways you can give financial support to Somewhere in Japan. One, through Patreon, where I’m working on building a community around this project. Here, for just $3 per month, you can become a patron and help make things happen. Alternatively, you can make a contribution using Donorbox, linked below. The money gets to me, either way, the biggest difference being that with Patreon, you get access to bonus material and a few other benefits.
Option 3: Click on the Pencils, Then Shop on Amazon (USA and Japan)
There’s a good chance that you do at least some amount of shopping on Amazon. If you’re in either the USA or Japan, you can use your everyday shopping to help me out here by clicking on one of the affiliate links below. You don’t need to buy the pencils themselves, just start your shopping journey by clicking on the appropriate link, and then I’ll get a small commission on whatever you buy.
Option 4: Buy Some Artwork
I sell prints online, and every sale does a lot to help my bottom line. Buy something for your home, your office, or as a gift for someone you care about.
And because I think you’re awesome, use code “get30” to get 30% off your order.
Option 5: Use an Affiliate Link for Products and Services I Believe in
The following products and services are things that I own or use, either presently or formerly, that I sincerely believe in. The links below are affiliate links, which means that if you end up buying something, I get some form of compensation from the company. This costs you nothing extra but helps keep the lights on here. See if there’s anything you need that corresponds to the choices below!
