I'm looking to use Patreon as a way to supplement my income and help support the content that I'm putting out in the esports industry. 

This content comes in both written and video form, and generally falls into one or more of the following areas:
  1. Analysis of current trends in esports, or decisions teams make when it comes to marketing. These tend to be columns or thinkpieces that examine the hows and whys of the headlines people care about. Example: "Who benefits? ESPN, TSM, and the great eSports gold rush"
  2. Sessions, a podcast about living and working in esports.
  3. Posts and videos about being a content creator, and how mentality and hardship can shape a person. These posts both examine how depression and mental health affect creativity, and how other people in the freelancing/"creating on the Internet" industry survive. Example: "#LetsTalk 2016 - My depression, and how it hurts me"
I currently also host a Discord channel for supporting esports content creators with feedback and advice, and publish an e-mail newsletter about the industry, media criticism and productivity. In the past, I have published resources for helping people to get better with Twitter, and other freebies

Pledging to be my patron supports all of these efforts, and helps me pay for things like streamworthy Internet, food bills and other equipment/travel costs. I am an experienced columnist and advocate for gaming and esports, and have worked within it since 2012.

Feel free to ask me any questions!

Goals
9% complete
$100/month! - Internet bills paid!
My internet bill is $100/month to provide a decent upload quality and streamworthiness. Hitting this milestone would help a ton in terms of being able to take a bill off of my list.
