At my level of notoriety, my Patreon has stopped growing in any meaningful way.
My more social-justicey stuff didn't always get the most views, but they drove the most patrons.
But if I miss a month, the trickle coming in gets smaller.
But, if I maintain a steady schedule, my Patreon goes up by about $8-12 a month.
That's my last 5 months of growth gone due to one tweak from corporate.
I don't use goofy photos of my face as the title cards to increase viewership.
Neither is likely to bring in a ton, but it doesn't take much to double your growth when your growth is $10 a month.
At the very least, I wouldn't scale back the channel until The Alt-Right Playbook is done, which is at least another two years.
All the biggest, weirdest videos I've considered get pushed up in priority.
Basically, over the next couple years the channel will likely get more ambitious, I may diversify my output, and then it's possible the channel will take a backseat while I take on new projects.
