It never sits well with me to rattle a tin for the old spondulicks. So until the channel is well underway I am shying away from this. The videos will be monetized and although I have made a Patreon page, it's really a suck it and see approach.
I am doing this on a shoe string budget; this site is light and is bolted onto my art and photography site so I cannot see it affecting my bandwidth although that may change if I start putting downloads here. My internet connection has a bandwidth limit which is a complete pain the arse but is manageable. This also might change if I decide to stream content but I really don't fancy that.
