The sun is out, the day is beautiful, and I have a couple things to tell you…
Festival of the Photocopier!
Yes, the dates have been announced (Feb 12), and Sea Green Zines will be attending! I just had my table confirmed. I am just as nervous (if not more so) than last year, but the whole thing was SUCH a great experience. Plus, I know more people now! I’ll probably go all anxiety-fuelled loud and obnoxious (again), but I’ll know more people.
Anyway, I’m babbling. Barring any catastrophe, I will be there! (I also might be launching something extra special…)
Patreon is similar to crowdfunding except that you can support a creator longer term or on a per project basis. The idea is (I think) that continued support in that form means a creator can focus on creating rather than needing to crowdfund each project (which can be exhausting).
If you follow my Twitter, you may have noticed that I was a little anxious about the prospect of joining up. Part of it was that I have a couple very loud acquaintances who are very much against everything like crowdfunding and Patreon.
I don’t do well with the very loud.
The other side of it is feeling like I don’t even deserve the chance to be open to that kind of support. However, I have been making an effort lately to treat myself the way I treat other people. I would encourage anyone who needs support to go for it, so I’m extending that feeling to myself.
I’m new to the whole thing, so please check it out and let me know if you have any suggestions. If you are also on Patreon, please let me know so I can check out your page.
That’s all for the announcements, though there are one or two in the mix to come eventually. I hope you are all having a wonderful week!
