Patreon Update: July 2015

Welcome to my Patreon Update for July 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 June.

June 2015 Earnings

June saw a decent rise in not only the number of patrons that joined my campaign, but also the amount in pledges. Below are some detailed numbers:

  • Pledged: $2,169.50 by 346 patrons
  • Processed: $2,139 by 332 patrons
  • Deductions: $131.42 credit card fees, $106.95 Patreon fee
  • Final Paid: $1,900.63


As I type this month's Patreon Update on my MacBook Pro, I am sitting on the balcony of the Luna-Mar Motel in Seaside Park overlooking the pool area— and waiting for what seems to be a decent amount of thunderstorms rolling through.

And you know what? Despite today's gloomy weather, I am enjoying it very much. It's days like today that remind me of how truly fortunate I am to do what I do and call it work.

Can you believe it has already been one year since I've launched my Patreon campaign? It was a bold move that I felt was necessary and man, am I glad I took that risk. Rethinking my revenue strategy and putting a heavy focus on crowdfunding has not only provided the support that my YouTube channel needs, but it also allowed me to explore new opportunities of purchasing equipment that has helped enhanced my video content.

Needless to say, I am incredibly thankful for the position that I am in. Without you, my community, none of this would have ever been possible. Here is to another year of success.

Enjoy the rest of your July, everyone. Stay safe and have fun!
