This is Ten Forward’s income and expense report for September 2023 which as usual means that all of these values are what happened in August 2023.

So without further ado, let’s get into it.

Notes

Only a couple notes, Patreon income is lower, however new subscriptions on Stripe made up for it. AWS expense value is technically higher but the difference when accounting for the slightly weaker Canadian dollar is negligible. USD$23.55 last month -> USD $23.79 this month. You’ll also notice the weaker Canadian dollar in the currency normalized table as higher expense values. Aren’t currencies fun?

All that said, we are still making a reasonable sized deposit into the TFSF account and we are closer to the milestone of CAD$1000 in the account. Once we reach that milestone, the next big milestone I am aiming for is CAD$2500, which is CAD$200×12+CAD$100 aka a full year of Ten Forward’s monthly expenses and some extra for currency conversation variations and yearly costs like domain renewals.

If you’d like to contribute to either milestone, you can do so here. Thank you everyone for your support!

That’s all from me this month, I’ll see y’all next month.
