How to make a pledge to a Kickstarter project

However, we totally understand that for many, pledging to a Kickstarter project may be a totally new experience. So with that in mind, I’ve put together the following step-by-step tutorial on how to pledge to a Kickstarter project.

NOTE: The folks over at Kickstarter won’t allow those running their own projects to self pledge, so in the example below I’ve had to use some screen shots of myself backing someone else’s project. However, to pledge to my project use this link: Kickstarter)How to pledge to a Kickstarter project
