I’ve been kicking around Zelda Universe staff for well over four years now, and while the site dates back way before my time here, I’m astounded at how far we’ve come having watched us grow in that short time span. When I began here as a humble news reporter, we used to be just a small group of friends on Skype devoting whatever spare time we had to running the site. Now, we’re the largest website dedicated to The Legend of Zelda, expanding our tiny team of staff to over 100 volunteers and increasing our news, features, guides and media output exponentially.
Of course, expanding as rapidly as we have, and with our sights set on an even bigger and better future, running such a website becomes more and more expensive. We’ve decided that, with Patreon, we can continue to provide high-quality content to you and aim even higher with our goals. Not only will you be supporting the website, but we want to make this an opportunity for you readers to get involved in our content, and gain unique rewards!
Our Patreon page is now live, so if you head over, you can find out more details and see the various reward tiers. We appreciate any amount you are able to donate, and that’s why we’re giving every single one of our patrons access to our Patreon blog for a behind-the-scenes look at how the site is progressing and other Zelda-related topics. Depending on how much you are able to donate, you can also gain access to Patreon-exclusive channels on the Zelda Universe Discord, have your name credited in our videos, receive an exclusive shirt and even become an executive producer.
Even if you are unable to donate, you can help us out greatly by sharing our Patreon page and spreading the word.
Readers, thank you from all of us at Zelda Universe for your time and consideration, and as always, a personal thank you from me for making my job here all the more enjoyable!
