two years ago it was suggested that I start a patreon account.

One year ago, I set up a patreon account:


https://patreon.com/paulwheaton




Time has passed ...   I said that if the pledges got up to $200 per artifact, I would rearrange things to put out more artifacts!  And here we are!

So I am trying to go through the options of patreon and get the page all ... good.  

One thing I want to point out is that you can make a pledge of $1 per artifact with a maximum of $1 per month.  This means that if three months go by and I don't put anything up, then it costs you zero.  But if I am prolific one month and put 12 things up, it costs you $1.00.

What I put into podcasts, articles and videos is influenced by the patrons - patreon has a private message space that is just for the people that contribute.


current tally of what people like best:


articles:  $15
videos:  $9
podcasts: $14


For $1 you get:
  • Care and Feeding of a rocket mass heater (30 minute video)
  • Early access to podcasts (one week lead time)
  • Early access to videos (one week lead time)
  • 11 podcast review of "Botany in a Day"
  • 10 podcast review of "Just Enough"
  • Podcasts 1-120 in convenient zip files
  • ability to make content suggestions





I'm open to suggestions on how to manage my patreon page.  I am still quite new to it.

Just in case there are any newbies here, I'm going to list where to find these things.

articles:
  • richsoil.com - the most fully developed articles, with photos or illustrations, and links to further resources, permies.com forums for discussions, suggested/affiliate products, etc.
  • paul wheaton's MakeItMissoula Blog - also more fully developed articles with photos and illustrations
  • paul wheaton's pseudo blog - forum posts by Paul, usually article-length with the first post, some times just noodling on an idea, and the discussions that follow it


  • videos:
  • paul wheaton's youtube channel - over 150 videos
  • richsoil.com stuff page - where to find the DVDs for sale, most of which were created through Kickstarter.


  • podcasts:
  • paul wheaton's permaculture podcast - the permies.com forum dedicated to paul's podcasts. Includes excellent summaries, in few cases there are transcripts, some times pictures, and, of course, discussions
  • richsoil.com audio podcast blog page
  • or search in your favorite podcast app for "paul wheaton homesteading and permaculture podcast"


  • paul wheaton project(s):
  • paul's property(s), purchased in 2013, is collectively called wheaton labs, for which we have an entire wheaton laboratories forum on permies.com


  • Did I miss anything?

    Though as paul wrote above:

    Maybe this is a good time to see if other creators might have things they are willing to put in to help me get my patreon stuff off the ground?
