Why you should give me your hard-earned money:
Currently, the only way I make money from my content is through ad-revenue. Being completely open and honest about how much I make off of that currently, I make about $0.68 per thousand views (the general lowest someone usually makes is $2.00 per thousand). That number can go up depending on how many ads I throw on a 10+ minute video, but not by much. I assume as I grow I will make more money per thousand views (my CPM will hopefully get higher) but for now I'd be making a very small amount even if I was getting a lot of views. That being said, I don't get enough views to support myself entirely off of ad-revenue even if my CPM was higher. I don't have any sponsors and even if I did I doubt they'd pay much at my size, I also want to avoid most sponsors unless I genuinely support the sponsor's product as to not push garbage to my audience.

TLDR: I don't make nearly enough off of youtube for the hours I'm putting in partly because I don't get enough views, and partly because youtube is screwing my channel over with very low ad-rates.

I promise to be open about how much I make and how important these payments from my patrons are as long as this patreon is open to the public. Making a living off of youtube alone is nearly impossible until you hit around 50k subs and even then it's probably below the poverty line. Money through ad-revenue does exponentially grow and that's why plenty of big youtubers can make it seem like everyone makes a lot of money, but the line between barely making a small living and being very well-off is thin. As of writing this, I'll be lucky if I make $50 this month from youtube revenue.

Don't pledge if you don't have the money, but any amount is greatly appreciated and I can't thank you guys enough.

Goals
$111 of $500 per month
This is half of what I need to make monthly to feel like pursuing youtube full-time is even an option. I assume once I'm getting half of that on patreon, I'll be already making the other half off of youtube itself.
