Jeff Brutlag is creating Stories and Livestreams

Hello, everyone! 

My name is Jeff Brutlag. I'm a writer, blogger, Twitch streamer, geek, coffee lover, binge-watch enthusiast, yoga advocate, social media dweller...I'm a lot of things, but at the very core, I'm a storyteller/creator with a passion for entertaining.

My stories and blogs often discuss LGBTQ or geek culture topics, as those two parts of my identity influence most of my creations. I like to think of it as visibility through art, and it fuels me to create even more.

My Twitch streams have been a great place to create community, especially around the video games that I love. Though I stream mostly story-driven games, I am very community-oriented during my streams, focusing on interaction with those chatting with me. I'm hoping to get back to streaming some creative writing related content soon, as I want to be able to feature that part of myself on Twitch, as well.

(In case you discovered my Patreon before discovering my content, feel free to check out my website to see many projects that I've completed!)

Okay Jeff, but what is this and what am I doing here?

Great question! Patreon is like an on-going fundraiser for creators. Patrons sell their soul offer their support in the form of pledges in order for content creators to reach goals they have for their creative projects (which I have listed on the left-hand side of my Patreon page). Hopefully you're here because you'd like to support my creative endeavors by becoming a patron! Was that a good segue? Maybe? It's debatable, so let's move on.

But why do you want my money?

Creators often put a lot of their own money into their craft, which can create financial strain, especially in this society where we have to spend so much money just to survive. Not only that, but we're putting hours upon hours of work into our work simply because we love what we do, without getting paid for it! The money from your pledges would go toward better video equipment, resources to improve my writing craft, helping me keep my website/Photoshop (for fun graphics purposes), and to eventually lead toward a life where I can be putting out way more content than I'm able to as someone who also has a full-time job to worry about!

Do I get anything in return?

My undying love and gratitude! 

...and much more! 

I have rewards set up based on how much you pledge per month. Some include behind-the-scenes photos, sneak-peeks into projects I'm working on, and videos discussing my inspiration for certain stories/blogs! Even a pledge as small as $1 a month will get you ahead of the rest of my audience by knowing what I have going on project-wise, and seeing the content I put out before anyone else!

As the tiers go up, the rewards become more involved, like getting deeper looks into my content, and seeing unedited written work that didn't make the cut! 

Pretty great, right?

For sure! But Jeff, I'm like, super broke. 

No worries at all! This isn't to make you feel obligated to pledge, but rather to say that it'd be really cool if you did. If you can't support me with money, even something as small as sharing this page, or my creative content with people you know would absolutely mean SO much to me! 

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this! I hope you decide to become a pledge, because there's definitely way more content in it for you, if you do! If not, I understand, and I'm just glad you stopped by and checked it out!
