Patreon Update: October 2016

Welcome to my Patreon Update for October 2016. This is my monthly report of how my Patreon campaign is performing, as well as my chance to thank everyone for their ongoing support.

As always, let's get started with last month's earnings. Below you can see my transparency report regarding all the pledges that were received and processed for September.

September 2016 Earnings

Continuing with last month's increase in earnings, my Patreon campaign is once again on the rise. For those curious, below are some numbers:

  • Pledged: $2,355.00
  • Service Fees: $266.23
  • Processed: $2,088.77
Pledge amounts shown for the current month are not final.

I think it's pretty safe to assume that bringing back the patrons-only vlogs is the primary reason why my Patreon campaign is once again seeing month-to-month improvements in performance. Earnings continue to increase incrementally and patrons overall seem happy with the rewards they are receiving in return for their monthly pledges.

Of course, this doesn't mean that I am suddenly going to become lazy. In fact, I have some exciting plans in store for the future of my Patreon campaign — plans that I will share when they are finalized. Until then, let's talk about what will be happening throughout the next few weeks.

It's no secret that I am moving to Strasburg, Pennsylvania by the end of this month. I'm very excited to take on the next chapter in my life. It's going to be nice to have a change in scenery, especially in regards to exploring new opportunities with my work. And that includes the patrons-only vlogs!

Any patrons who pledge at least $5/month will get access to my exclusive vlogs, which will include plenty of content related to my big move. This is in addition to the 80 or so vlogs that are already accessible via Patreon. A new vlog is uploaded every Friday, so be sure to install the official Patreon app (iOS, Android) on your phone and enable notifications. You'll be notified the instant a new vlog is uploaded.

And finally, there is one more thing I want to mention. Patrons who pledge at least $5 will also get early access to all my upcoming holiday videos. That includes "Thanksgiving 2016," "Christmas 2016," and anything else holiday related that is uploaded between now and New Year's Day. In other words, if you've been thinking about becoming a patron, now is the best time to do just that! I promise, you will not be disappointed.
