Editorial and recurring costs
The Unmasked Autistic is on a mission to help raise awareness about Autism and Autistic people, debunk myths about what Autism isn’t, and grow our collective understanding of our world’s diversity and why we are all stronger for it.
I do this by providing high-quality articles at no cost to you, my much-valued reader. Articles like this one Breaking news: Autistic man demonstrates theory of mind take much time to write due to the research involved, and because they are in-depth in scope – 2,600+ words.
To allow me to continue to write such articles, and to cover the ongoing costs of running the website – costs that include spam protection for you when you visit the website, web and email hosting, and domain name fees – I am asking you to consider making a small donation.
I want to keep The Unmasked Autistic free from advertising, and I don’t want one person to have to cover the entire cost – I want this to be a community.
Plans for 2024 and beyond
In 2024, I also have hopes of starting a podcast that will feature guests like Autism-trained and Autism-friendly health professionals (as I have met many that I would recommend), or Autistic people themselves who would like to share their experiences.
This too will come with associated running costs that I would like to cover via donations, rather than having to include any annoying advertising that would interrupt each episode.
What you get in return
In return for your small donation, you will receive a warm fuzzy feeling knowing that you are helping me continue to write and produce content – for you. Content I hope makes a positive difference to your life, helps educate you about Autism and neurodiversity in general, and that helps you feel connected to something more.
Please consider helping me. And thank you! 😊
