Botwiki Updates #14

Botwiki site updates, new bots, and events.

Posted 5 years ago in

There is still time to join the Monthly Bot Challenge! Also, I’m very happy to see the number of subscribers grow past 130 — not too bad for what is still quite a small niche! 🙂

This newsletter, and all the related side projects, including and are (mostly) a labor of love of a single person (hello!) and I always appreciate folks reaching out to me offering help: there is a huge backlog of bots I’d like to add to Botwiki, I compile this newsletter, interview people (I had to take a long break from that, but the next interview is coming soon!), and I organize the Monthly Bot Challenge and seek out sponsors, among other things.

If you don’t have the time (which I completely understand!), I’d also appreciate even a small donation, via GratipayPatreonPayPal (this is a personal account, please include a note!), or Bitcoin.

Your funds will all go towards covering expenses like hosting, domains, and I’m also considering hiring someone to help with site updates.
