Patreon Update: May 2015

Welcome to my Patreon Update for May 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 April.

April 2015 Earnings

Continuing with the success of introducing patrons-only vlogs, last month's earnings are the highest they have ever been. And with this, I am hoping to see a month-to-month increase as the year progresses.

Below are my detailed earnings for March 2015:

  • Pledged: $1,969 by 326 patrons
  • Processed: $1,914 by 321 patrons
  • Deductions: $122.78 credit card fees, $95.70 Patreon fee
  • Final Paid: $1,758.00


The transition from March into April was a good one; nothing significant, but definitely good. My Patreon campaign saw a small increase in both overall pledge amounts and the number of new patrons that decided to jump onboard.

As stated in last month's update, I strongly believe this month-to-month increase is mostly due to the fact that I am now publishing exclusive, patrons-only vlogs on a weekly basis. And actually, today marks the release of my fourteenth vlog. Needless to say, that's a lot of content.

Tonight I will be hosting another Google+ Hangout, exclusive for $5+ patrons. I'm excited to have my friend Dan join me once again. We'll be enjoying some drinks, talking about technology, and all that good stuff. It's going to be a good time!

I suppose that's it for now. However, that doesn't mean I am not thinking about ways to further improve my Patreon campaign. Of course, this can only happen with your participation. If you have any ideas, please feel free to contact me.

Well, there you have it. Another Patreon update has come and gone. This one was particularly short, but I suppose no news is good news in this case. Things are going very well, which is only made possible with your support. Thank you for everything.

As I like to say, this is just the beginning.
