I want to make time to create funny things, and you can help.

Why now?
The last few years have been a bit chaotic, so I didn’t want to ask for help until I knew I could follow through on my recording goals instead of having that time eaten up again and again by freelance work.

Today, I’ve got a great full-time job with fun people, my wife is enrolled in the doctoral biophysics program of her dreams, and our 5-year-old is healthy and happy!

I’ve considered the goals and rewards here carefully, and while some of them might seem modest, please keep in mind that I was only able to produce one vanilla Hermitcraft video in 2015. With your help so far, I produced over 130 Hermitcraft videos in 2016!

Folks who’d like to enable me to produce individual ad-free can help out by backing at the fifty dollar or one hundred dollar level. I know this is a lot of money to ask, but my wife is currently working 70 hours a week on her PhD, and I’m juggling a full-time job and caring for our daughter from when I pick her up at daycare after work until she goes to bed. The money helps defray the costs of my recording space and babysitting, and it is massively appreciated.

Once again, I’d like to say that a lot of hard work by my wife and I matched by kindness and support from family and friends, has gotten my family through some rough times to a place of stability and happiness. Everything that you can give will be appreciated, but is not going to make the difference between whether we eat or not. No fan should feel guilty at all if you’d like to give but can’t.

I want to make things for all of you that make your lives a little better. Pitch in if you can.

Thanks, and keep adventuring!

In addition to the above, you will be invited to join Joe's Patreon Minecraft server. Plus, your name will be added to my supporters' sculpture in Hermitcraft Vanilla, estimated construction date: February 2017.

Poetry fan
$50 or more per month 3 patrons
Each month, I will make one ad-free hermitcraft episode that replaces the mid-roll ad with me reading poetry I wrote myself and you'll be credited by name for the commercial free nature of the episode.

Same as $50 reward, but without the poetry. You will be thanked by commenters for sparing them the poetry, and I will act like my feelings aren't too hurt. This includes every reward above except the $50 one (as you've leveled it up).
Monthly custom videos
$200 or more per month 0 patrons
I will record a brief unlisted video congratulating someone for an accomplishment or celebrating their brithday. These can only be positive messages, I'm not here to make people feel bad about themselves. This does not include the rewards from the other tiers.
Monthly custom passive aggressive videos
$500 or more per month 0 patrons
I will record a brief passive aggressive message reminding someone to do the things that are already expected of them. I will not insult them, but I will heavily insinuate it would be so awesome if so and so put their laundry in the basket like a real adventurer with a pure heart. This does not include the rewards from the other tiers.
Goals
$304 of $359 per month
Help offset the rent for my recording space! This wouldn't cover all of it, but it'd help me justify renewing the lease!
