Patreon is a service I have considered using for quite some time now and with a recent poll suggesting that over 3700 of you liked the idea, I decided to take the plunge.
As you guys know I have been looking into ways of which I can increase my available recording time. There are a number of different options available to me:
- House Studio: This would allow me to continue living at home, but heavily improve the equipment that I already have. Has a high upfront cost, but works out fairly cheap in the long run (despite needing to constantly upgrade the equipment). Items that are currently on the list are: Furniture, PC, Monitors, proper sound proofing, base traps, external drive storage, Mini Fridge, Secondary Microphone, powerful portable laptop, new camera equipment, webcam, greenscreen.
- Office: Continue living at home, but have an office that I travel to each day to record videos. Would be a good focused environment, but my specific needs making finding a suitable location difficult.
- Move out! This is by far the most expensive option, with property nearby being eye wateringly pricey (seriously, it is ridiculous around the suburbs of London). But, it would once again provide a good focused environment for creating videos. Heck, I could even get a dedicated recording room which be nice!
But honestly, I don't want to talk about money anymore, it's boring. This is an outlet that allows those of you who wish to support me in the creation of future content to do so without too much hassle. I hope you like it!
