So hey, I started a Patreon.
Last fall, I started my Youtube channel, Ashes Rising Gaming. For a few months, I was able to consistently get out 1 video per day. Obviously, that was an outrageous goal. I've since changed to 3 videos a week, every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. I've made videos where it's just me, some with facecams, some without. I've made videos with other small youtubers and indie game developers. And I've recently added my roommate, Danzer from Twelve36, as a regular on Ashes Rising Gaming, so there will be many videos with the two of us coming.
Here's a little about myself though, for those who don't know me. My name is Phoenix Williams, I'm a freelance video editor by day who edits and produces social media videos. For a short period of time in 2015, I was an intern at Rooster Teeth productions, where I got the inspiration and the drive to start my own channel and actually create content. I still create and commentate videos on the Let's Play Community channel.
So why am I creating a Patreon? Well, I post three videos a week here on top of all the videos a week I create for my day job, on top of freelance gigs that can sometimes take me out of town, and on top of, well, life. This is what I enjoy doing, and although I post a lot, I don't have the best equipment. I may not get a lot of views, but I'm hoping that by constantly making, that will one day change. I hope to be able to buy better equipment that can be used to make the content better, and make even more content, and to be able to stream more regularly.
I will be clear though.
Everything I make will still be free to view.
I'm not putting anything except one video a month (non gameplay) behind the patreon perks. This is simply a way for people who wish to support me to do that. Like my stuff but don't want to be a patron? That's absolutely fine, I don't hate you, I just might like your other siblings a tiny bit better though.
Thanks a lot and I hope that with the help of patreon, my channel will continue to grow!
