I’ve started a Patreon campaign to help carry the costs of maintaining and expanding LATG and I could use your help!
Managing LATG is a labor of love. Unfortunately as this blog and community continue to grow the costs of running it – both in terms of material and website related costs as well as time spent working on what has essentially become a full time job – continue to grow.
If you’ve got a minute or three to spare please consider checking out the campaign plug. There’re goodies and rewards to be had!
Since 2012 Languages Around the Globe (LATG) has grown from a fun little Facebook page project that I messed around with in my spare time while working as a TESOL coordinator into a burgeoning social media community spanning many platforms as well as an ever expanding website and blog.
Through LATG I attempt to share my experiences and insights into the world of language learning, linguistics and other aspects of human culture.
Languages Around the Globe is totally free and will remain that way forever.
Your monthly donations go to keeping the site afloat, covering the costs of the language products I review and the tutors I work with. If affords me the time and energy to devote myself entirely to creating a higher volume of higher quality content for you and for the entire LATG community.
Any amount that you’re willing to pledge goes a long way towards improving the quality of the website. The more that is pledged, the more I can do what I do, see what I can see and the more stuff I can give back to you. It’s hard to argue with that!
Some of the things I’m looking to do in the future are to expand and upgrade latg.org with an improved jobs board, forums and maybe even a podcast or other video content! I’m also hoping to begin work on a new website focused around satirical language learning tips and news, which will give me a more creative and “raw” outlet and hopefully provide everyone with some much needed laughter.
I’ll even get rid of those ugly third party advertisements!
If we can really raise some cash I plan to start making donations to some of our favorite endangered language documentation or preservation efforts, or other language related causes in desperate need of some assistance. You can help decide who those beneficiaries might be and even have your name included as a donor.
If you’re a fan of LATG – and we all know you are if you’ve read this far – please consider lending a hand in support. Any amount is greatly appreciated and you can always cancel your monthly donations at any time.
Be sure to keep checking back every so often! I plan to add new, even better rewards as time goes by and LATG expands.
