So what is this Patreon thing then? In a nutshell, it’s a way for people to financially support the creators that they love. By subscribing to my Patreon for a small amount each month, you help me out a lot, because then I can more easily afford to make the things that I do. In return, you get access to patron-only content! In the past, this has included song demos, hi-res modelling photos, behind-the-scenes exclusives, and early access to things I make. And I’m always thinking about what other extras I can give to you! Have a suggestion about possible rewards? Please let me know!
And Patreon is helpful to me in other ways as well. The fact that I know my patrons are subscribed on a monthly basis gives me a much greater impetus to keep on creating, even when I’m feeling my worst. The last thing I’d ever want to do is let you down! So because of my patrons on Patreon, I find that I’m now much more interested in continuing to create, whereas in the past I would’ve just wasted my day playing Civilization: Beyond Earth or Stardew Valley to escape from the thoughts in my head. So not only are you the reason I stay alive, you are now also the reason I keep on creating!
Would you like to subscribe? Have a look on the right side of the page! There you can see my reward tiers - currently only $1 per month for access to everything! If you click “Get Reward”, you can then type in $1 or higher as your monthly pledge, and sign up to get instant access to all the patron exclusives that I’ve posted so far! You’ll then have ongoing access to all my new content for as long as you stay subscribed. Thank you so much, you’re awesome!
But what if you can’t afford it just now? That’s okay! While Patreon is the best way to financially support me (as opposed to sitting through ads, for example), it’s not the only type of support you can give! Just the fact that you’re watching my videos, or viewing my art, or listening to my music is fantastic! Every time you click “like” or thumbs up, every comment you leave me, every time you share my stuff, it’s ALL amazing and really does help! And you can rest assured that even though I do have patron exclusives, I will always be making public content as well, available on the various platforms that I use. In fact, you’ll also find a lot of public posts here on Patreon too!
Where to find my content? While I do use Patreon a lot like a blog, I don’t always post everything here. If you’d like to keep up with my posts on a particular platform, please be sure to follow me there! I always use the name “DestroyerMariko”, and you can find my stuff on YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter, DeviantArt, and my website www.destroyermariko.com as well. My band “Rainbow Death Ray” is also on Bandcamp, or you can visit www.rainbowdeathray.com for more links.
An overview of things I do:
- YouTube videos and blogs
- Music, most recently in Rainbow Death Ray
- Writing - mainly poetry
- Digital art
Thank you so much for your support! I honestly would not be here without you. And remember, if there’s something you’d like me to make, regardless of whether or not you’re a patron, please let me know! I’m always looking for interesting ideas, and if you happen to give me an inspiring suggestion, I’ll do what I can to make it happen! Let’s be creative together! ^_^ ♥♥♥
