Softly Spoken Update: Goodbye Ads, Hello Patreon

Jellybean Green ASMR
Published 7 years ago

Hey y’all! Long story short: I’m going to start the process of removing ads from my channel and I’m launching a Patreon account. This was a tough decision for me, but I think it’s the right one. Please watch the video and/or check out my Patreon page for more specific details. Thank you all, as always, for your views, likes, and comments. Y’all are the best!

***EDIT (May 15): Hey y'all! I'm in crazy study mode for a big exam I have coming up Monday morning, so I'm a little behind on replying to comments, but I wanted to drop in and do some quick damage control. I took for granted that people would understand how Patreon works, and there's been a little confusion, so hopefully this clears things up: All of my videos will still be appearing here on YouTube. For everyone. For free. The only change is that I'm going to start removing the loud commercials that play between videos. I have also started a Patreon account, which allows people to contribute a small amount of money to my channel on a monthly basis, if they so wish.

As someone who has been contributing to other content creators on Patreon for over a year now (a handful of people, at about $1 each), it's an option that I really appreciate and enjoy, so I thought I'd offer it to any viewers of mine who would also like that option with my channel. There are lots of reasons why people might not wish to contribute (e.g. they simply can't afford it, or maybe crowdfunding isn't in accord with how they wish to spend their money, or maybe they just plain don't want to) and they're all valid. Contributions to this channel are super helpful, and I'm not going to pretend they're not. However, I want to be very clear that support you've been giving me all along, in the form of views, likes, and comments, has been and always will be MORE than enough.


►Patreon: Viewer contributions are a huge help in allowing me to create regular, high quality content. If you’d like to help support my channel, please check out my Patreon page.


►Remember, ASMR is awesome, but it's not a substitute for professional care. If you have mental or emotional health concerns, please see a mental health professional. If the first person you speak to isn't a match, keep looking! You deserve good health.

►DONATIONS: Y'all, there is NO pressure to donate; I love making these videos, and your views, likes, and comments mean the world to me. If you do wish to make a Paypal donation, though, please know that gifts of any amount are gratefully accepted and super helpful.
