Patreon members (and now also YouTube memberships) sustain my ability, and inspire me, to create better video episodes, more often. I recognize contributions as compensation for the work and time, and I appreciate every cent. As one of the few incomes I generate off my work, it goes towards buying materials, tools and animal feed.
Why do I ask? It takes an enormous amount of time during my normal day to record, edit and manage the channel. Members are friends and have access to the private Telegram group. They also get to see the videos ahead of time (without ads), including some exclusive videos.
For those who can not support me in this manner, your views, comments and likes are much appreciated.
