Moving On From Patreon
I know it's been a while since my last blog post, so I apologize for bringing bad news- but don't worry, great news is coming! However, I am sad to say that I will be shutting down my Patreon. I want to thank each and every one of my followers, Patron or not, for your contributions. Once October ends, there will be no more Patreon, howeverrrr, there are still other ways to show your support! I will be moving my efforts to Etsy, where I sell patterns and merchandise, which all got its start on Patreon. In order to keep adding more content to my shop, it would be wiser if I didn't split my efforts between the two platforms, so I will be focusing on Etsy, and in the further future, building an online storefront here on my site! If you were a big fan of my print rewards, I also have a Storenvy with more prints being added from time to time!
And lastly, I do have a Ko-Fi, where you can make as many one-time donations as you wish, ALL of which is going into my computer savings so that I can get a newer and more powerful PC that will allow me to edit videos again, since my current computer is old and cannot handle the workload. The videos are invaluable to my Etsy, since I create free-to-view construction videos to go along with my sewing patterns.
Will my Patreon ever come back? It is not at all impossible! It's just that right now, I want to work towards condensing the amount of income sources I have into as few channels as possible. I will be reverting my account from "Creator" to "Patron-only" on the 25th of October. No pledges after that date will be able to be placed, and all rewards will be fulfilled accordingly. To keep up with all of my future growth, cosplays, news, and plans, be sure to follow me on social media! Lately I've been taking a break from most social media while I make the necessary life transitions in order to realign my priorities, so forgive my recent radio silence, but I'll be back in full force before you know it! You can follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube!
I thank you all TREMENDOUSLY for your amazing support, love, and encouragement. I wouldn't be where I am now without all of your warm gestures. Now that Patreon has helped me learn and discover the direction I want to go in, it is time to narrow my focus so that I can move onto bigger and better things! I can't wait to show you all the amazing ideas I have in store!
