GREETINGS FRIENDS!

I've decided to join Patreon as a creator because I love making stuff, and I love sharing that stuff with you! I want to tell you immediately that everything that I create and post online (videos, writing, cat photographs) will continue to flow freely - both figuratively and literally. That's not going to change, so don't panic!

Clarity is beautiful, so here’s why this page exists:

-to bring a whole bunch of JOY content into one feed
-to give interested folks a seamless way to support the (JOY)arts in an ongoing low-impact way
-to make it easier for us to interact with each other, and for y'all to connect to one another as well

I'll be making all sorts of things to share with you: new music, unsolicited advice columns, cat photographs, pop culture commentary, cover videos, drink-making videos, haikus, and much, much more.

FAQ:

Q: So what’s the benefit of being a Patron if everything is going to continue to flow freely, Jenny?
A: I’m so glad you asked! By becoming a Patron, you’re not only supporting the arts in a sustainable way, you’re joining a community of people who love a lot of the same things you do. AND you'll most likely experience a warm, fuzzy feeling inside.

Q: But, like…what’s the real benefit?
A: Okay, okay. Patrons will not only be getting some exclusive content, but also PREVIEWS of things like videos, new music, and articles before anyone else in the whole wide world gets to see them. Additionally, I’ll be hitting y’all with some sweet promo codes so that you can get an early jump on any merch sales. We might even do some random give-aways.

Q: That all sounds cool, but what I REALLY want is a video of you doing headstands and playing guitar behind your head.
A: Well…I’ll take that under advisement. I want to know what YOU want too. And if the Venn diagram of what I want to make and what you want to see/hear/watch has some overlap, then we'll REALLY be in a party zone.

So thanks for stopping by! Thanks for caring! I'm so stoked to do this weird new thing with y'all.

Thanks for your support! You'll receive access to the patron-only feed, where everything will be posted and discussed. Talk amongst yourselves, and I'll talk amongst you too.

Thanks for your next-level support! You'll gain access to the patron-only feed (see above) - but you'll also snag downloadable versions of any content (mp3s, PDFs, and whatnot), AND you'll be invited to a bi-monthly, Patron-only AMA. Want to know what inspired a song I wrote? Need dating advice? I may only be half-qualified to answer, but you can ask me anything!

WHAT! Thank you, you lovely beast! You're too kind. In addition to patron-only feed access, content downloads, and the bi-monthly AMAs, you'll also be the recipient of all kinds of random surprises from me. What is a random surprise, you ask? WE'LL SEE, but ideas in the pipeline include (but are not limited to) drink-making tutorial videos, StageIt bootlegs, haikus, songwriting tips videos, previews of fun things in the J.O.Y. world as they happen, cover videos, and so much more. Sometimes it'll be a small surprise that I just feel like sharing, and sometimes I'll craft videos, essays, or other stuff - just for y'all!

Holy smokes are you kidding? You're so lovely! In addition to the patron-only feed, the downloadable content, Patron-only AMAs, and random surprises (see above), you'll be invited to a bi-monthly (every OTHER month, that is) digital JOY-hang (broadcast platform tbd/standby), where we can all get together in a virtual room and talk about the important stuff... Game of Thrones, Buffy, our feelings... maybe I'll play some songs as well. The sky's the limit!

OMG NO YOU HANG UP FIRST! This is all moving so fast! Thank you thank you thank you! In addition to the patron-only feed, the downloadable content, Patron-only AMAs, random surprises, and the bi-monthly (every other month) JOY-hang, you'll also receive a personal email of deep gratitude from yours truly, PLUS physical JOYmail (postcard or letter) every three months, so I can remind you that you are awesome once per season. YES!!!
