Josiah just put in two more videos.  Patreon peeps now have access to these two videos.   I think this relationship with patreon is working extremely well!  Josiah is REALLY coming into his element.  These last two videos are REALLY good!  

         - The rocket cooktop at allerton abbey

         - the cob floor experiments at allerton abbey

I think Jen is doing a great job telling us about this stuff.   This is all working out super great!  I know I am ecstatic!  This is amazing!  Strong forward velocity!

To see these videos now, and get a whole bunch of other stuff, and see all of my videos before everybody else:   http://patreon.com/pwvids

We've been experimenting with putting the names of patreon peeps in the video.   Just three per video - for the top 10 all time contributors.  

I guess I'm still in that space of "I don't know how to patreon" and maybe this will help to get the patreon thing to do better?

I was just thinking today of how cool it is that the youtube videos and podcasts are getting so much support and are getting going again.  

As I think of the people that have behaved poorly over the years and made my work more challenging, it occurs to me how grateful I am for the people have been so powerfully supportive.   I'm very grateful.  

To express my gratitude for how incredibly much these folks have supported me ...

To the people supporting my podcasts, that have an all time contribution of $100 or more, I sent:

   - 24 ebook gift codes "Building a Better World in Your Backyard"
   - 6 gift codes for podcast gobs
   - 6 gift codes for permacultue thorns ebook
   - 6 gift codes for the rocket ovens DVD
   - 6 gift codes for the Giant Solar Food Dehydrator Movie

To the people supporting my videos, that have an all time contribution of $40 or more, I sent:

   - 12 ebook gift codes "Building a Better World in Your Backyard"
   - 6 gift codes for permacultue thorns ebook
   - 6 gift codes for hugelkultur microdoc
   - 3 gift codes for the rocket ovens DVD
   - 6 gift codes for the Giant Solar Food Dehydrator Movie

Note that these are all gift codes.  You can use one for yourself if you like, and all the rest can be given to anybody you deem worthy.  

Thanks again.   All of you put coin behind me with the idea of receiving nothing more than what I end up sending out to the general public.  It seems so weird, and rare, that this many people would do such a thing.    Your generosity moves me forward.  I hope that these gift codes make you look cool to your friends!  :)

Hi Paul,

When I became a member I just had to create the pledge and I had access. No charges had been put through at the time.

Thanks for the freebie!

That's what I thought would happen.  

Thanks for confirming Ashley.

---

So I guess this means that 100,000 people can go and get the goodies for, essentially, free.   And we just have to hope that they will stay with patreon long enough to actually contribute a dollar.

I just got coin from my podcast patreon stuff.  

I am super grateful to all of my patreon supporters.   I snagged the email addresses of all the people currently supporting my podcast patreon stuff who have a lifetime contribution of $40 or more and sent them the following gifts just now:

   - 6 gift codes for the 17 podcast review of gaia's garden
   - 3 gift codes for the Building a Better World in Your Backyard audiobook

Thanks, thanks, thanks for your support.  Thanks for supporting me ahead of production - not even knowing if what i put out next is any good.   Thanks for supporting me knowing that what you get is the same thing that general public gets for free.  

Each time the funds come in, I re-work the list that goes into the podcast page for each podcast.   This is the list of the active supporters that support at $3 or more, in order of their lifetime contribution:

And now I have received coin for my video patreon stuff.

Thanks to my video patreon supporters.  I am very grateful for your continued support.  I fiddled with the spreadsheet report stuff and was able to extract the email addresses of all active supporters that have put up $25 or more for all time.  To each of these people I sent

  - 12 gift codes for the wild edibles movie
  - 6 gift codes for the skiddable structures microdoc
  - 6 gift codes for the PDC evening presentation on animal relationships with jacqueline freeman
  - 6 gift codes for the PDC evening presentation on ram pumps with Tim Barker presentation

I hope that when you give these to your friends, they think you are generous and cool.

Thanks so very much for your support of something that ends up in the general public.  Your support propels oodles of projects and helps us build community - here, on site, and globally on permies.

When the funds come in, it is time to create the list that goes in the description of each video.    These are the people that actively support the patreon for $3 or more.  In order of their lifetime contribution:

Any suggestions on how to do patreon better?  Specifically the video patreon.  

For the video patreon ....  The coin starts off high for the first video and quickly dwindles.  I'm a bit swamped, so i offer the coin to the boots here.  There are probably about 400 video opportunities.   I offer them $50 per video.   They feel like "maybe", but they aren't doing much.  

If I can get the pledges up, I will offer $100 and see if we can get these videos rolling.

The way the current patreon is, if I put out 15 videos in a month, then I get a little less than $50 per video.  But at $50 per video, the boots don't seem very motivated.

At $100 per video, then I think the boots seem like they will do it.   And each video will have more content (about 7 to 11 minutes).  So we get videos and the boots have some jingle for their pocket.  And who knows, maybe some fancy videographers will stop by from time to time to make a dozen videos and take home some coin!

I wish to get back to producing at least a dozen youtube videos each month.   And I am hopeful that the boots in the bootcamp will do it and be paid well.   Because the patreon currently pays out less than $50 per video (the first video starts high, but because people put monthly limitations on their support level, it quickly tapers off to about $25 per video), I pay the boots $50 per video.  

I would even like to get videos to be more substantial and higher in quality.   So maybe, someday, I could say it is $50 for the first five minutes and then $10 per minute up to ten minutes.   And maybe enough patreon income will come in that I can offer a $100 bonus for really good videos!  

The important thing is that the $50 per video offer is on the table, and videos are not happening.  

So I am now thinking:  how do we double the patreon support for the youtube videos?   I am not editing videos now.  But there is this video:



Maybe I can make more videos like this for the patreon peeps --  as in, providing consultations like this for the patreon peeps to kinda see if more people will jump in and back my patreons.  Or maybe some group chats with my patreon peeps?   Something to make the patreon thing seem super worth doing so that we see a lot more people backing the patreon thing.   And then with more patreon support, I can raise the bounty on videos here at wheaton labs, and then we see a lot more awesome stuff, and the boots get more jingle in their pocket.

So here is what I am going to do:   I will do many of this consultations for the people backing this patreon:  http://patreon.com/pwvids   ---  In a few days I will email all patreon peeps and say "Wanna do a zoom call with me like the one with Evan?"   And out of all the patreon backers that say "yes" I will choose those that have put up the most coin.   Since a lot of people will be of the position "hell no" then that might leave several people that have, to date, put up zero.  

Let's do it!

I think regular updates about the boot camp would be cool.  What they're working on mostly but also some commentary on life in the bootcamp.

I love the idea of a video per card.  Paul, I can see you drawing a card from the deck and holding it up to introduce the topic.  Maybe in future printings the cards could have the URL for the video.  I really want to see the husp video as that beautiful concept dances through my mind very frequently.  Have you found any folks who have decent representations of this life?  Would be great to see....perhaps also a husp consultation could be in the cards? (bad situational pun...sorry)

So something like a zoom call but centered around a card?

I was just thinking a zoom call with a husp theme, but bringing the card into it might be fun, though not at all needed.  I was brainstorm wandering from your card videos idea, over to how great it would be to interviewing folks doing husp like things, then over to that it would be fun to see a consult for someone that is trying to transition to a husp ideal and is looking for help with that.

So maybe the thing to do is to set a date and time for a husp call and then just have an open thing?  Maybe using the youtube thing which i still seem to struggle with?

It would be cool if I could:

   - email the patreon peeps with a link so they could participate in the call (voice and vid)

   - allow the youtube subscribers to participate via the chat


If I could do that and we had ample participation, I could see doing that monthly or even weekly.  And each of the playing cards could be used to as a theme for the week if we didn't have something else.

That sounds like it could be great Paul.  Perhaps send some husp links with the announcement as prework to get folks into the mind set?

I think this is the best podcast I have ever recorded.   About the permaculture click.   More on the click here https://permies.com/t/152851/live-life-experiencing-permaculture-click

It ended up being three podcasts.  All three are up for all patreon backers.  So if you pop over to patreon now and back for one dollar, you can get it now.   Everybody else will get it in about two to three weeks.

Hello,

I was not sure where to leave general recommendations or ideas about the podcasts.

Suggestion: request the developer of Podcast Addict to add Paul's Permaculture Podcast to their curated list.
Podcast Addict is the largest and most used podcast app on Android and I can't find anything on permaculture, permies, Paul, richsoil or anything else.
However, searching these databases online I can find the podcast RSS feed, just not in the app.
https://podcastindex.org/podcast/1051736
https://podcastaddict.com/podcast/1678933

The email address is support {at} podcastaddict.com and request them to add the feed to their curated list of in-app searchable podcasts.
