Good morning, Interweb. My name is Edgar and I make worldbuilding videos like this one: If Earth Had Rings

I show creators of science-fiction and fantasy how to construct scientifically informed fictional settings - galaxies, stars, planets, moons, langauges, calendars, flags...the works.

In September 2017, I quit my job with the aim of pursuing youtube full-time. Unfortunately, youtube's ad rates are...um...abysmal and it's really, really difficult to even make a basic income working on youtube. Especially with a niche channel like mine.

At the moment I'm living off savings. Which is precarious, unsustainable and more stressful than I had anticipated.

So, that's why I'm launching Patreon. I want to make this my actual job. I want to do this full-time. I want to keep making awesome content you for and be a bona fide video maker. I think for the first time in my life I have found what I'm good at and I don't want it to go away.

I'm asking you to make my dream come true.

Thank you for reading this. Thank you for continuing to watch my videos. Thank you for even considering supporting me in my nerdy endeavours. I am privileged to be in this position and I owe it all to you.

You folks are fracking awesome!

Woah there, pal! That's an awful lot! Who do you even think you are?

Ye, I know. :( Sad reality is that this is roughly Irish minimum wage. This is what I need to have a basic standard of living whilst working on youtube.

This assumes worst case scenario of 1 video per month. If I make more, the extra funds will go towards equipment upgrades, paying for my Adobe CC subscription, purchasing books/papers and maybe one day getting an animator on board to help me out.
