There are many ways that you can support our efforts to maintain this blog, the Facebook page and the various Venice Foodies related groups on Facebook. As you can imagine, it does take a considerable amount of time, effort and money to maintain these valuable resources for the community. While we love supporting this community, we also recognize that we need your support as well!
Easy Ways To Support Us
Bloggers like us rely on our readers to share our posts, comment on them and overall, just be an active participant in our community! By taking a few moments out of your day to read the recipes, guides or restaurant reviews on here and sharing them with a friend is a HUGE support. I am connected to an ad network, so simply reading through and checking out relevant ads along the way can support us!
Purchasing Things We Recommend
You may see in our posts that we recommend certain products or sites. When you choose to purchase something, we may receive a small commission payment! This doesn’t change anything for you, but it means the world to us!
Directly Through Paypal
If you would like to make a monetary contribution to support our blog, you can do so through Paypal! Just click HERE to go to Paypal’s website where you can choose the amount you want to send. Every $1 is appreciated and means so much!
You may be asking, “What does the money go towards? Are you raising money for something specific?” Allow me to explain in detail! Along with the time it takes to research and write these blog posts for you to read, and as much as I enjoy going out to restaurants to report back to you all, there is a cost factor that goes into this. Contrary to popular belief, I do not “eat free all over town”. While I have developed relationships with restaurants and do receive occasional perks, I will never expect to be served a free meal simply because of this blog. Even in cases where I do receive something as a courtesy, I always want to make sure the servers are taken care of as well! When you support our blog, you are ultimately supporting our community as well since it will more than likely be used to do something at a local, small business!
Through a Membership On Patreon!
Patreon is a fantastic platform that allows supporters to join as a monthly member at different tiers. We have 3 tiers, $5/$10/$25, each with different perks that go along with it and more perks to come in the future as we grow.
