What is Patreon?
Patreon is a website & app where you can subscribe to me for a certain amount per month and in return, you get cool rewards!
You can subscribe from as little as $2 per month or as much as $100.
Some of my rewards include:
Access to my private Patreon only feed.
Access to my private Instagram where I share exclusive pictures, behind the scenes, my art, youtube ideas, polls, announcements & other special things that I don’t post anywhere else 💕
Why did I start a Patreon?
As most of you already know, YouTube is my job.
Youtube changed their rules regarding ad revenue. Ad revenue is how YouTubers, like myself, earn money.
In addition to just straight up demonetizing certain users (stopping them from earning money), youtube has also granted advertisers the ability to opt out of videos that fall into vague and broadly definable categories.
This change unfortunately affected many people, myself included.
If you know me then you know I’m not your average person. I don’t follow society’s rules & I definitely go against the grain. This usually results in advertisers not wanting to place ads on my videos.
When I speak up on YouTube about topics such as veganism, feminism, body hair/not shaving, not wearing makeup and other so-called “taboo” topics, these videos are affected & are often either demonetized completely or my ad revenue is greatly reduced.
I don’t want to let them silence me and I don’t want to let this stop me making videos on YouTube.
Your support on Patreon means I can continue to keep making YouTube videos which I know we both enjoy! 🙂
