My Patreon Page is Live!

You can check it out here! https://www.patreon.com/jayrayhawk

This is something I’ve wanted to do for awhile now, but I wasn’t really sure how to go about it.

Most of the time I see folks who are artists, or doing the kinds of things where they are able to produce a lot of tangible content frequently (videos or music etc.), who are using Patreon to its best effect. I believe those are the sorts of things that it fits best in general.

As an indie game developer and self-publishing indie author solo act, it took some extra consideration on how exactly I could put one together and still give people something worth subscribing for, without necessarily having to devote a huge amount of time into creating additional content beyond what I’m already working on just to appease the expectations of patrons.

I felt like whatever I did with Patreon rewards, it needed to be as a natural extension or result of what I already am producing for the most part, rather than adding a bunch of extra stuff to my workload. That was the challenge that I faced in trying to think of a way to provide rewards to folks who were generous enough to help support me financially.

But after awhile of considering what I could do and what I had to offer others in this regard, I did manage to come up with enough ideas to launch a Patreon page of my own starting today, which you can check out here: https://www.patreon.com/jayrayhawk

For now I have settled on two tiers with content that I believe I will be able to add fairly regularly, at least a couple times a month. My goal is an average of one post or update a week, with a minimum I’ve set myself for at least one update a month. This is my first time trying something like this, so I kept my commitments to it on the low side, that way I don’t get in over my head early on and end up feeling overwhelmed by it.

We’ll see how it goes though! I appreciate everyone who takes the time out of their day to check it out, and spreading the word about it would really help me out!
