Who am I?

Hi there! Most of you might know me as ch527kerosene, but you can call me Kero for short. I'm a Youtuber and content creator living in Amsterdam, NL (but originally from Minnesota, USA). My main focus is hair and fashion videos, but I also love making travel and lifestyle vlogs. As my patron, you'd be supporting my #1 passion while getting exclusive access to patron-only content and behind-the-scenes looks you won't find anywhere else.

Why Patreon?

After many of my subscribers either asked for or suggested I start a Patreon, I've finally decided to do it. I'm excited to have a platform for sneak peaks and BTS, in addition to giving my subscribers a way to support the content they want to see! Plus as some of you have heard, Youtubers' across the board have taken a hit in ad revenue lately, because of changes in Youtube policies and algorithms.  Videos are earning less money but take just as much time and energy to create. This puts creators in a tough spot, but that's where patrons save the day. :) On top of that, I'm living completely independently for the first time and due to the laws surrounding my work permit I'm not allowed to work any job as an employee and must remain self-employed here in the Netherlands, so I can't just go get another job.

Because of your generosity, I'll be able to keep doing what I love, increase the quality of my content, and be better for you. Your pledges will be used for upgrading my current filming set-up, investing in new equipment, products for new videos, and, I'll be honest, my rent. :p This is not only because I film in my apartment, but because my content is my only source of income. I've made several attempts to work another job and maintain my channel, but every time I do I lose focus on making videos and sometimes stop altogether (if you've been a subscriber for a while, you've probably noticed when that's happened!). And like I mentioned above, I legally can only be self-employed. Thus I've determined that if I want to stay a Youtuber and stay living in the NL, I must do it full-time. So here I am!

Exclusive Content? Behind-the-Scenes?

What will you get as my patron? Well, aside from my eternal gratitude and a special spot in my heart, I have all sorts of fun stuff in store! You'll have the opportunity to receive a hand-written thank you card from yours truly, a sticker (or 2), a shout-out in the description of my videos (for a month or longer), and/or a verbal shout-out in a video. Plus I hope to do prints, polaroids, and merch eventually! You'll have the opportunity to see videos first before they're published on Youtube, with no ads, and bloopers + outtakes from current and past videos. And finally, you have the chance to get access to my exclusive, patron-only feed where you'll see any hair change first (before any other platform), get video/project updates, videos I can't post on my channel (room tours, go-go dancing videos, and anything else too personal for me to share publicly), fun facts, throwback photos, and recordings of my livestreams (in the past found on Tumblr, but now a Patreon exclusive)! Plus help me decide what to do with my hair, what videos to make, and any other suggestions you might have.<3

For a full explanation of the tiers and their rewards, just take a peak at the list on the right. 

And so . . . 

Thank you for taking the time to check out my page! To those who do pledge, thank you for showing your love in this way. I appreciate it more than I can ever say! But remember, all of you mean the world to me and even if you can't pledge right now (or ever) you still mean just as much. And don't worry--nothing will change on my other platforms (aside from improving!). All of my content on Youtube, Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, and YouNow will remain free and available! 

*Note: I'm on the charge up-front model, so new patrons will be charged the day they become a patron, then on the 1st of the month going forward. So if you pledge on Oct 20th, you'll pay that day and then again on Nov 1st.  Rewards will be fulfilled after the pledge goes through, with an average turnaround time of 5-7 business days. Physical rewards and verbal shout-outs will only be given to pledged patrons; written shout-outs will be given for one month even if the pledge is deleted after joining. If you have any questions, message me!

New Camera :D
I've had my camera (Sony NEX-F3) for six years and while it's still going relatively strong, it's starting to slow down. It has trouble focusing and sometimes takes a few tries to turn on, just showing a black screen, then the logo, then a black screen. I suspect I have about a year left with it (hopefully more), but if we reach this goal I can invest in a brand new, higher quality camera!
