Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have anything published [on X topic]?

I usually get asked this by academics, so I’m going to infer the question assumes “… in peer-reviewed journals.” The answer to that is no… not yet. If I ever do, it would only be in open access journals that welcome submissions from people without institutional affiliations.

However,

How do you find time to work on these projects?

Many people know that my day job is as a web developer and digital marketer, and that the work on this website is all done outside of paid employment.

So, the answer is: I live somewhere cheap and work part time, so that I have time for side projects. Occasionally I get paid as a freelancer. I’m also supported by my patrons on Patreon. You can become a patron from just $1/month and help support the costs of the work that I do.

No point adding questions that aren’t frequently asked, after all.
