Hey there!
Are you a fan of my vlog? If so, it's great to see you on Patreon! If not, how on earth did you find this? Go watch a vlog or two and then come right on back. I'll still be here waiting for you, promise.

Now that we're all on the same page, welcome to my Patreon! If you're already a Patron, thank you so much!! Your contribution is actively improving the vlog (and by extension, my life). Need a Patreon explainer video? I've got you covered:



My Favorite Part of Vlogging Has Been YOU!
Cheesy, I know, but true! The best part of vlogging this year has been interacting with and meeting the people who watch my vlog. It's wonderful and strange and inspiring all at the same time. I love reading and responding to comments as well as the messages I get through a variety of other mediums. But I want more - I want to increase your ability to engage with the vlog - and I think I found a way to do it.

You Vote - I Do
I really enjoy the interplay of having an audience watching me live my life on the daily - the suggestions and questions and requests for more of this (e.g. sleep Jay sleep) or less of that (e.g. my old nasty hat) which do have a real impact on how things go. You guys care and I want to give you some fun ways to help me make even better videos!

Patreon enables a few really cool ways of interacting, but I thought using polls to influence my decisions would be a blast - and it has been. I give you options for everything from what I should eat to where I should travel, and you can vote as you please. The winning option (mob rule around here) will wind up in my vlog or, even better, being live streamed on YouTube.

What shorts do I buy? Which new pastry should I try? Where should I explore next?

Thanks to Patrons, I went to Venince when I would have otherwise stayed home - and I have a blast sharing the results every time. I can use the extra push to get out and see a few things, but more importantly I want to share those experiences as I go.

Vlogging As a Passion

Jumping into Patreon with me does two things at once - it provides some funds to improve the quality of the vlog through a variety of means, but mainly by freeing up more of my time, which has fed back into each video as I dedicate more of that time and energy into planning and executing better videos. I don't make much money off my vlog as it stands - there is little-to-no ad revenue, nor do I have big sponsors.

Your support keeps me independent of all that and helps push me towards making these videos for you full time. It felt like a dream a year ago - now it's practically upon us.

What is Patreon?
Patreon is a subscription service like Netflix, but with varying perks. You can think of those perks like an ongoing Kickstarter - crowd-funding to support the projects we love. In this instance, it's your chance to influence my life by making me eat strange things or visit exotic lands. You also get postcards and stickers if you play your cards right. And in exchange for obeying your every whim, I want to build an ongoing and ever-growing conversation with you here. Won't you join me?

Select a reward level in the sidebar - each level includes all the rewards of those below it. And then let's get back to vlogging!

p.s. For those of you who like to read fantasy, there's a special something for you in the thank-you message after you pledge ;)
