Patreon Update: December 2017

Welcome to my Patreon Update for December 2017. This is the monthly report for my Patreon campaign and how it's been performing, as well as my chance to thank everyone for their ongoing support. 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 November.

November 2017 Earnings

November was certainly a solid month. Check out the detailed earnings report below:

  • Pledged: $3,358.00
  • Service Fees: $403.04
  • Processed: $2,954.96
 

Pledge amounts shown for the current month are not final.

 

Updates

Good news! The performance of my Patreon campaign for November is about the same as it was last year. That means my patrons are generally happy and I continue to consistently deliver the exclusive content that I promise on a weekly basis.

However, I feel it is important to briefly comment on an issue that came up in recent weeks. In case you missed it, Patreon announced not too long ago that they will be restructuring their pledge system and how fees are handled. Needless to say, people weren't too happy — and this goes for creators and patrons alike. The backlash was pretty significant.

Thankfully, Patreon being the open-minded company that they seem to be, responded to the overwhelming amount of feedback and decided to go back on their decision. In other words, and to keep things short and easy to understand, nothing changes. The Patreon experience we all know and love will continue as-is.

In other news, did you know Christmas is just days away? I know, it feels like it crept up on us quicker than usual. Not only is this the best time of the year, but it's also a great time to be a patron. As per tradition, all $5+ patrons will get early access to this year's Christmas series. If all goes well, I am hoping to have "Christmas 2017" published by the 26th. Yep, we're talking less than 24 hours later. And if not, then definitely by the 27th. You have my word.

If you are not yet a patron and would like early access, there's still time! Just pledge here and I'll take care of the rest. In the meantime, you are free to enjoy 130+ exclusive vlogs. A new vlog is published every Friday, so be sure to check back often!

Conclusion

I suppose this is the final Patreon Update of the year. I would like to thank you so much for your incredible support. Because of Patreon and what you've done for me, I am able to deliver content in an all-new way. Patreon, as I tend to say too often, is a game changer. It really is. I cannot imagine the Internet without it.

Thank you, Patreon. Here's to 2018!
