What is Patreon and why do you use it?I love this platform to help me connect with you on a deeper level! This is for those of you who want to help support what I’m doing in ways that allow me to continue to Educate, Entertain and Encourage you and others through the story of my life on the Daddykirbs Farm.
If you're not familiar with Patreon, the concept is that you support a creator financially for the valuable content they create for you. In my case, it's mostly videos about the learning and growing that takes place on my little farm.
I believe in this concept with all my heart. It's helping creators bring more value to the world by making it financially sustainable long-term. Please consider supporting my work with a dollar (or however you much you like) per month.
How does it work?Every few days I publish a new video to my YouTube channel about life and learning on my little farm. All my content is free for viewing on YouTube, but this Patreon account helps people like you support me directly. You pledge any dollar amount per month. This small pledge helps support my creative uploads and gives you and I a platform to become more familiar with each other.
Your support enables me to invest into producing free YouTube training videos.
As you know, it takes time and resources to create content, both which require money. For now I also maintain a full-time job as a Graphics Designer. I feel very blessed to have the job that I have, but someday in the future I'd love to focus more on delivering content to support people as they learn Homesteading, Gardening and other Healthy Living tasks.
The equipment used to make this content has been a financial investment too. What I'm using is adequate but I would love to create higher quality content in the future. I'll be saving my pennies to make this happen.
I don't have money, and I thought your videos were free?Yes! My YouTube videos are free and I hope you are enjoying them. It really is no problem at all if you choose not to support me directly in this way. Please don't become a patron if you're low on money or are struggling financially. I know what that feels like and want you to take care of more important priorities first.
I would love to see you join in the conversation in the video comments on YouTube for those videos that mean the most to you. Keep in mind that one of the greatest gifts that you can give me as a creator is to share my content with your friends and family.
Who is Blake "Daddykirbs" Kirby?
Howdy Y'all! I'm Blake Kirby. I live just outside San Antonio, TX to the NE. My passion and journey for learning how to grow things is recorded on my YouTube channel, Daddykirbs Farm.
My channel is not a bunch of "How To" videos, but rather clips that show the journey on the farm. Back in 2011 I moved my family out of the suburban neighborhood to a place that looks a little more country. The city isn't far away, but there is some peace and quiet down this dead end road.
Since then there have been lots of mistakes made and lessons learned on the farm. Caring for gardens, orchards, chickens, ducks and goats has been a truly educational experience. I share the success and failures of the farm on YouTube and on the Daddykirbs blog.
In 2014 I accomplished a Certification in Permaculture Design by finishing the Geoff Lawton online PDC. The direction of the farm is aimed toward harmony with nature through good design. Each project will consider the use of all available energy and resources to achieve the greatest results with the smallest inputs.
Even with this super busy life on the farm I like to try to have fun with creative posts online. This is expressed on my Instagram, Facebook and G+ profiles. I'd love to see you there too!
How You Can Help
Patreon Support: you set an amount to tip every month to help underwrite the cost of video and blog post production. These things take time and energy. The small amount that you can give per month will help continue the demonstration and education about being good stewards of our natural resources and ecosystems.
Non-Financial Forms of Support:continue to follow and SHARE my adventures and journey online. Sharing my content with your friends and family is perhaps one of the greatest gifts you can give to me. I love engaging with you through the comments on all my social media sites. You encourage me to keep doing what I'm doing. This is a very valuable form of suport. Keep it up!
