Patreon Update: June 2015

Welcome to my Patreon Update for June 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 May.

May 2015 Earnings

May was definitely a solid month. Earnings remain to be consistent with previous months, which makes me happy. Below are some numbers in detail:

  • Pledged: $1,961 by 335 patrons
  • Processed: $1,946 by 326 patrons
  • Deductions: $125.55 credit card fees, $97.30 Patreon fee
  • Final Paid: $1,723.15


This is one of those months that defines how much a significant difference my Patreon campaign can really make, and that is my MacBook Pro with Retina display purchase. As I type this, I am patiently waiting for it to arrive. It's scheduled for a Monday delivery and needless to say, I'm very hyped to see what kind of impact it has on my workflow.

Buying this MacBook Pro is not only going to allow me the flexibility of editing videos while on the go, but it also opens up new possibilities of doing live streams on a random basis — which is something I hope to do more regularly. Meerkat streams via my iPad are great, but I would like to give Livestream another shot at some point. We'll see what happens.

Aside from my MacBook purchase, everything is pretty much the same — and that's a good thing! Earnings are about equal to last month's, a handful of new patrons have jumped onboard, and I continue to come through with patrons' rewards, as promised.

And just like that, another Patreon Update has concluded. I can't believe it has already been one year since I have launched my campaign.

As always, stay awesome and we'll talk soon!
