Patreon is an excellent option for an ongoing webseries, it's true, and I researched it a lot. How it shakes out is I didn't think it was a strong position, having make a lot of work but only one video essay, to ask people to fund me indefinitely. It sounded like a hard sell, and I honestly wasn't comfortable asking for it. It feels more appropriate to shoot for a small batch of videos and, once they're complete, see how we're doing. If it seems I have a lot more to say, and people have found value in what I've said so far, it would be worth trying out a Patreon.
