About


Welcome to my patreon page where I aim to explore online creativity, confidence and writing through my experiences.

Every month you will receive an essay written by me that'll hopefully inspire, entertain and give you an insight into the life of a writer and a blogger. 

In the past couple of years I’ve built up my current blog, grown an Instagram account to over 17,000 followers, taught myself how to photograph and edit flatlays and created videos for YouTube and IGTV. I’ve written and sold an e-course helping people similar to me how to tell and share their stories in this online world and appeared in magazines such as Stella, Creative Countryside and Blogosphere.

Yet for a decade prior to this I was incredibly timid online.

I now want to create a series of essays over the course of the year where I explore my position in this online creative world. I want to dig into the past six years of being a chicken-keeper and seasonal lover and discover why this has had such an impact on my writing, both on and offline, and creative confidence.

How come I used to be scared of putting a photograph of myself on my blog but now I’m quite happy chatting to camera in my videos on YouTube? Is it the confidence I’ve gained from discovering new skills out in the field and garden? Or from posting a photograph every day on Instagram? Or is it something to do with my own personal season? I am in my early forties, after all, and feel like I’m finally shrugging off the shackles of limited creative confidence.

I'm looking forward to exploring all of this and more in my essays.

What can you expect?

Every tier will receive a monthly essay and have access to Patreon only blog content.

If you'd like to chat to someone about your own online creative content: perhaps you'd like to start a blog, a YouTube channel, an Instagram feed, a vlog, a newsletter, a Patreon or an ecourse then I am available and willing to answer your questions. Have an explore in the tiers to see what's available. 

I’m Helen Redfern and I’m a writer. I write the blog Helen Redfern Writer, curate an Instagram feed with the same name and share videos on my YouTube channel. I also produce a weekly newsletter called Journal Notes which are based on what I've been journaling relating to my writing, online creativity and the associated mental blocks.
Goals
49% complete
My aim is to turn these essays into an inspiring self-published book about online creativity.  Reaching this goal will help me with the cost of putting this book together.
