You can set up multiple projects as long as each uses its own unique email. There shouldn't be anything from stopping you setting up a Paul Wheaton Podcasts and a Paul Wheaton Videos separately besides that one aspect.

Maybe too far OT, but I've had the same experience as Hal... but via my husband :)

[i]"You may find Patreon convenient, but I feel a creepy shiver when I contemplate giving someone the key to my bank account and [b]authorizing them to dip in[/b] at random intervals."[/i]

I've recently felt comfortable giving $ to political candidates (OK - Bernie et al ;), who are using ActBlue. With them, I've gotten email requests, been able to make a lot of small donations, on my OK for each one, with a confirming email to make sure I donated $5 and not $500 (which I accidentally did once, but it was immediately corrected... whew!.. my typo ;). Something like ActBlue is probably too big and complicated and costly, but I wish you could use it (or your own version ;) to:

-send me an email with latest video production from a Permie (or even just a regular reminder that Paul needs a buck just because!)
-that includes the option to make a 'contribution', of any amount (probably $1 minimum) (yes you'll have my cc 's)
-get a confirming email so I can doublecheck

My 2 cents... there may be more out there like Hal and my husband :)
-------
Ooooh, I thought of a name for those of us who'd like to support per the system via the method I outlined above. We've got GAPers, SEPPers, how about CHIPPERS... not an acronym, just folks who'd like to 'chip in' on the Permie effort :)

I'm giving monthly contributions to a couple of different podcast producers. I think it's a good way to support the things you like. I should go check out your Patreon page. . .


Oops, I already did! I'm down for $1 per artifact, but I don't think I've paid out anything. I get an email from Patreon every time they take a bit of my money, have you put in any claims for completed artifacts? It looks like as of today you get $30 per artifact.

OK, so I was drawn here by the daily email comment that there was light at the end of this 15 month wait for the RMH DVD's... I'm not seeing it here, folks. Any news???

I find with podcasts I tend to try to multitask which means I am not really paying attention and don't get as much out of them. The visuals in Video keep my mind on the topic and allow me to make better comparisons to what I know. DVDs tend to get stashed and not get played because there is so much current coming in.

I really like the online seminars where the presenter has a series of slides and bases his presentation on explaining the visuals. Paul does really good at that. Maybe Some of the ants could could give presentations on your platform and share revenue.

Podcasts are very much appreciated during my long commute each weekday. I would be happy to support a more consistent podcast schedule.

There is an option to set a monthly maximum donation. That way if a creator all of the sudden starts producing way more content than before there is no surprise gargantuan bill.

Also, people are charged on the 1st of the month. This means you can effectively think of Patreon as a subscription service (like Netflix) but instead of being charged $X per month you are being charged up to but not exceeding $X per month (as long as you remember to set maximums).

Getting some push from adrien, jocelyn, fred and ryan ....   re-examining

https://www.patreon.com/paulwheaton

articles:  $9.00
podcasts:  $13.00
videos:  $9.00

total: $34.00

So the latest podcast now went through the patreon machine.  

I added a goal of $200.  

A long time ago I put out a podcast every other day and a video every other day from that.  I don't think I could hit that quantity again, but I like the idea of a three or four things per week.

I added a thing that only the patreon supporters will see.  It will influence the future direction of the patreon stuff.    Post over there if you can see it.
 
Story like this gets better after being told a few times. Or maybe it's just a tiny ad:
