About Not Leaving Las Vegas

YOU THINK YOU KNOW LAS VEGAS BUT THAT IS JUST HALF THE STORY 

My name is Steven, and I am not leaving Las Vegas. 

I am a full-time Las Vegas Youtuber originally from Calgary Canada who is bringing a real, unfiltered look at "sin city" to the world by way of vlogs (video blogs), documentaries, and video essays! 

My YouTube show is called "Not Leaving Las Vegas," because frankly, I am going to stay so long as this city offers so many opportunities and adventures to bring to you!

WHEN THE VEGAS GOGGLES COME OFF, THE REAL CITY REVEALS ITSELF 

Every year over 44,000,000 people visit Las Vegas. The majority of them take advantage of our massive selection of entertainment. 

Shows, restaurants, casinos and day drive destinations bring tourists to help them relax and unwind before they go home and settle back into the "real world." 

WHO AM I ANYWAYS?

I am a full-time Las Vegas youtube blogger who creates videos for YOU. I am was born and raised in Calgary Canada and have lived in Las Vegas since 2004. 

I live a "regular" life in Las Vegas, work hard at a commission only based job and aspire to become a full-time YouTube creator who also works in multimedia and design. 


Me and the Family Members


SO DO I HAVE TO PAY TO SEE YOUR VIDEOS NOW? HOW LAME ARE YOU!

First of all, let's get one thing clear - I am not charging you to see my youtube videos! My channel will always get videos on moving to, living in, vacationing in, visiting Las Vegas and much more. 

This is a way however for me to be able to allow my regular subscribers to support my work and help me lesson my "regular day job" work (or burden) and focus on more content, better quality content, and invest in better quality equipment to give you a superior experience when you watch my show on Youtube. 

PATREON? WHATS THAT AND HOW DOES IT WORK?

Patreon allows regular people to fund creators they love on a monthly. It allows creators to in turn provide different rewards or thank you levels for those rewards. 

If you've ever wanted to install an adblocker to get rid of YouTube ads forever, Patreon gives you a way to support creators and not worry about taking ad revenue away from them. 

If you've ever wanted to simply support someone monthly for what they do (like how we ALL seem to support Netflix or Hulu or some other streaming service), this allows you to do just that, and get something back in return (on top of the warm fuzzy feels that you get for helping me out).

You can edit your monthly pledge at any time, or cancel entirely if you need to. 

It's like I am running my own streaming service, and you are one of my subscribers... but with cool PERKS!

WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS?

Youtube is a funny business. Google search the term "apocalypse" and see what I mean. Basically, in the past, YouTube has changed the rules of what can and cannot be monetized on their platform. 

One day millions of creators earning enough to at least cover one of their utility bills through YouTube woke up to discover they were no longer eligible to earn on the YouTube site. This really happened, and can happen again.

Combine that with the massive amount of viewers using adblock which prevents any ads, and you have a situation where any type of side income helps to keep me creating videos for you on a consistent basis. 

Many YouTubers earn money in the following ways, which I just am not okay with:

  • I do not directly ask people for tips or demand money to answer questions in Superchats.
  • I do not have special guests who pay me to be on my channel
  • I would like to avoid random non-Vegas related sponsors in the future. 
  • I do not charge people to mention their videos or do collaborations. 
I love creating for you, so Patreon helps with keeping me and my family busy making videos for you.

SO THEN, WHAT IS NEXT?

If you've watched my channel in the last few months, you've noticed a change in my videos. I hope for the better. These are better quality videos with a story telling aspect to them. 

I wish to continue to bring you these videos (on YouTube, for free) while I provide a little more here for those that want to help support my dream to make a full time career in creative arts and YouTube ultimately a reality. 

LASTLY, THANK YOU. YOU ARE WHY I DO THIS

One last thing. THANK YOU. Whether or not you are in a position to become a Patreon today or ever, I want to thank you for your ongoing support and to let you know that you are the primary reason I push to deliver more and more work to you, to upgrade equipment when finances allow and to bring the world a glimpse of what living life in Las Vegas is really like. 

Thanks for your ongoing support, and whatever you do keep clicking the like and share buttons and leaving me those comments (which I reply to like 99.998% of the time!)

Pay the Rent FULL TIME. Make More Videos
Not hard to really get, if I can pay the rent FULL TIME, I can improve equipment and make more videos. 
Thanks for helping out!
