Hello!Hey folks, Bartmoss here, and welcome back to "Have Joystick, Will Travel"! Or, in this case, my Patreon page.
I create gaming videos on YouTube (and stream on Twitch), and it's a massive amount of fun. The channel has grown to 2000 subscribers, something I never expected. However, running a channel takes a lot of time and, more importantly, actually a surprising amount of money, and I find myself limited by both factors: Currently, the channel is wholly financed by my day job, but my day job is also the biggest hurdle to creating more and better content for the channel.
It would be great if the channel could pay for itself or - a man can dream, right? - actually pay all my bills so I could dedicate more time to it. But it doesn't, and frankly, the future of advertisement revenue on YouTube is shaky at best. (Not that I like ads in the first place.)
This is, I hope, where Patreon comes in. With Patreon you can, if you enjoy my work, support me financially. Help me pay the bills. Allow me to put more time and work into the channel, thus - hopefully - resulting in more and better content.
Note that I don't expect any contributions. If you simply enjoy my videos, that alone means a lot to me. And all Let's Plays I produce will remain free for all of you.
No matter what form it takes: Thank you very much for your support - and see you in the next video!
