Patreon Update: February 2015

Welcome to my Patreon Update for February 2015. 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 January.

January 2015 Earnings

The beginning of 2015, like most months, has been great. As expected, there was a decrease in pledges post-holiday videos, but I still managed to accumulate over $1,000 for the month of January. And you know what? It's going back up again in February, which is great. I'll talk about that in a bit.

Below are my detailed earnings for January 2015:

  • Pledged: $1,235 by 198 patrons
  • Processed: $1,225 by 196 patrons
  • Deductions: $76.30 credit card fees, $61.25 Patreon fee
  • Final Paid: $1,087.45


Starting out the new year, my projects (especially this very website) have been receiving some nice updates. From amping up the production quality of my YouTube videos to rolling out new features across two of my websites, last month's Patreon earnings are already making a difference — and that will soon show with some upcoming reviews that I have in the works.

Now going from December to January, I certainly saw a decrease in pledges. This is mostly due in part to patrons only signing up for the month of December in order to watch my holiday videos ahead of public release. This is perfectly understandable, which is why it makes me glad to hear that so many of you enjoyed that perk.

Fortunately, it seems that my Patreon campaign is once again receiving a nice boost in pledges. Ever since announcing the introduction of patrons-only vlogs, I have probably seen at least 50 new patrons sign up. Simply put, that is incredible. Thank you so much for your support! It's an honor for me to be able to produce exclusive content only available to a small group of supporters.

I'm still just getting started, by the way. As of this writing, I have only released one patrons-exclusive vlog — which has already received a ton of praise. And there is plenty more where that came from. These vlogs are now part of a weekly routine for me, so expect a ton of bonus content as time progresses.

I am also happy to report that I have once again met my Patreon milestone goal of $1500/month. Assuming that my total pledge amount will remain above the target this time around, viewers can expect to see weekly live streams on Twitch from myself. These will usually be broadcasted via PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, so I hope to see you there! Feel free to add me on Twitch, here.

Things are looking good, and I have you to thank for that.
