"Hello, everyone-- I am Tessellating Hexagons!"
...Or just "Tess" for short. Or "TessHex" for medium, if you prefer. And a hearty welcome to my Patreon page from me to you.

I've been around on the Internet for...well, let's not go there. But I've been alive since the mid-90s, grew up with the Internet, and started making stuff for the Internet in 2013, as a reviewer of Eurovision songs, and irreverent player of video-games. And now, I've decided to make the move to board the Good Ship Patreon, albeit a bit later than the rest of the cool kids.

So, what's this all about, then?
Ordinarily, you'll find me doing what I do over on my YouTube channel-- that is, four gaming videos per week, next-day reviews of Eurovision songs when they're chosen (season permitting), and roughly-weekly live-streams, with the occasional piece of miscellaneous creative content sprinkled throughout.

I don't plan on hiding any of that behind money-shaped barriers; heavens, no. I intend to create additional stuff for Patreon above and beyond all of that-- namely, combining my talents into regular reviews of gaming content, and Eurovision content, in the hopes that I may appease as many of you lovely people as I can. These will reach my YouTube channel eventually, but not for a minimum of one month after they're posted here. That might be extended, if patrons feel it ought to be.

So, in plain and simple terms: the stuff I usually do for YouTube isn't going anywhere. It won't be hidden behind pay-walls, and you lovely people here on Patreon won't be charged for them. It's just the shiny, new, review-based content that your support will be...well, supporting.

But what does that actually mean?
My plans for Patreon are as simple as this: for each month, I'll post three to four times-- once weekly, only two of which are paid posts. That is to say, you only pay for two videos per month, no matter how much I produce.
  • Week 1 will be a quick round-up of what to expect in the coming month here on Patreon. It's free, of course.
  • Week 2 will be that month's Eurovision-based review. It could be about a whole country's history; it could be about a particular year-- anything's on the cards, really. It'll be delivered unto your review-receiving apparatuses as a 20-minute-or-so video (or "audiovisual experience", if you prefer). This is one of the two monthly paid posts.
  • Week 3 will be that month's gaming-based review. This might be an in-depth look at one game that I want to shed more light on; it might be that "top five/ten countdown" format some YouTubers are so fond of producing. You'll just have to wait and see. Regardless, same as the Eurovision content, it's in the form of a 20-ish minute video. This, too, is a paid post.
  • Week 4, in most months, will be my week off, where I plan ahead for the next month's load of content.
  • Bonus content? If a month ends up working out at five weeks, I'll throw in a little extra something, free of charge. I'm just that nice.

What if I can't support you right now?
Fear not. Each video I post to Patreon will remain Patreon-exclusive for one month (subject to change if my patrons feel that needs extending), after which they will be uploaded to YouTube for general consumption. I'll do my best to make them worth the wait, and, even better, worth paying for.

And what will you be doing with the money from this campaign?
I'm so glad you asked. Well, you see, I graduated from university in 2018, and that, here in the UK, doesn't come especially cheap. I'd like to be able to afford nice things without worrying about paying back those pesky tuition fees. So your donations will help improve what hardware and software I use to create what I create (both here, and on YouTube), as well as give me more opportunities to showcase games that aren't quite so easy to get one's hands on, and so on.

...And you'll get my sincerest thanks, of course.
