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).

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. eating healthier) 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 think using polls to influence my decisions would be a blast. I'll give you options for everything from what I should eat to what I should wear, 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 (and eventually, we can do exclusive events via Twitch or Patreon's own live streaming function).

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

Thanks to you guys, I went into Versailles when I would have otherwise avoided it - and had a blast filming and sharing the interior of the castle with you. 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 (from experiences to equipment upgrades) and will eventually free up more of my time, which will feed back into each video as I dedicate more of that time and energy into planning and executing better videos. I don't make any money off my vlog as it stands - there is no ad revenue, nor do I have big sponsors.

Your support will keep me independent of all that and help push me towards making these videos for you full time. We can certainly dream together =D

What is Patreon?
Patreon is like an ongoing Kickstarter - it's 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. 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 ;)
