Become a Patron!


If you take a good look around the In Pursuit of Maine blog, you’ll see that there are no advertisements.  I’ve been asked.  I’ve been tempted.  But I haven’t done it because I believe that my stories and photos are a secret little sanctuary I share with others . . . just because.  When you visit me here, I want you to be able to leave your cares at the door, if only for a few minutes, and enjoy what you see and learn.  Advertisements would take away from the magic I’ve tried to create on this blog.

In Pursuit of Maine is a labor of love, but it is still labor.  I don’t get paid to write any of these stories or to take any of these photos, but it does take a lot of time and effort to do so.  Some might think I'm crazy for putting in so much time and effort without a promise of return, but every time I get an e-mail from someone telling me how much I've touched their life or somehow helped them, I know I'm doing the right thing.

Becoming a financial patron of my writing helps me to continue to bring it to you.  Any amount is greatly appreciated and helps to keep me going and growing.  Thank you. ~ Melanie
