How you can support my work

reality blurred—an independent web site focused on reality TV and owned by me, Andy Dehnart—relies on contributions from readers like you, in addition to advertising.

While I want to keep my writing and reporting free for everyone, running a web site and producing content is not free: there are many expenses, including the time and resources it takes to produce high-quality journalism and criticism.

Meanwhile, social media outlets and platforms where readers gather, such as Facebook and Twitter, are making it more and more difficult for small publishers to reach readers without paying them money.

That’s why I ask for help, and offer a few simple ways you can help, if you can.

Your generosity will help to keep reality blurred going—helping me and your fellow readers. Thanks!


become a patron

For a monthly contribution of $2 or more, you’ll help to sustain reality blurred‘s journalism and criticism. And you’ll get perks, too! You can stay a contributor for as long as you want.

I use Patreon to manage the process and perks.


upgrade your newsletter subscription

While my weekly newsletter is free (and you can sign up using this form), you can also upgrade your subscription to get subscriber-only bonus content, including an early look at the reality TV shows premiering during the next week.


give a one-time contribution

If you’d prefer to support the site with a one-time gift, you can do that via PayPal:


buy a book on Bookshop.org

I love Bookshop.org because it not only allows you to support me (I earn 10 percent of any books you buy), but every purchase also supports local, independent bookstores.

As their site says: “We give away about 75% of our profit margin to the stores, publications, and people that make up the thriving, inspirational culture around books!”


buy some merch

Need a new coffee mug, a comfy hoodie, or fresh notebook? There are more than 25 products you can get—and when you do, I get a few dollars.
