Patreon Update: May 2017

Welcome to my Patreon Update for May 2017. This is the monthly report for my Patreon campaign and how it's 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 April.

April 2017 Earnings

Numbers are slightly down, but that's nothing new considering what time of the year it is. Regardless, I continue to be quite happy with how things are going. Just check out these earnings:

  • Pledged: $3,517.00
  • Service Fees: $404.63
  • Processed: $3,112.37
Pledge amounts shown for the current month are not final.

It may be a slow time of the year for growth, but that doesn't mean my Patreon campaign is doing poorly. In fact, it's quite the opposite. Despite the slight drop in overall earnings, I continue to make patrons' pledges more than worth it. With a new exclusive vlog released every Friday, as well as the opportunity to present patrons' links in the Patrons Showcase, my rewards continue to help keep things consistent.

I've also updated this website with a nice little change. When reading the Patreon Updates, you can now quickly access any of the ten latest exclusive vlogs via the sidebar. This is a great shortcut (and reminder) if you've missed a vlog or two and you're looking to catch up. Simply click the thumbnail of your choice and you'll be taken to the corresponding vlog on Patreon.

And speaking of vlogs, how does early access to "Seaside Heights 2017" sound? Yeah, I realize July isn't exactly here yet, but at least it's something to look forward to. Just like with any of my other holiday/vacation videos, patrons will get first dibs.
