I have revamped a bunch of my Patreon, changing goals and rewards, adding tags, and thinking through what I want to happen next with it. Moving forward, I'll be doing more locked (and unlocked) posts.
A huge part of what I want from this is connections, a critical mass of readers that guarantees a lively conversation in the comments. I am curious about how our hearts and minds move through a chaotic, physical world, and more people means more insights. And the more of us that are present, listening and talking, the better.
I have been thinking of this as a hive of sorts, currently small and settling in. What fields do we gather in? What news do we bring? But I hope it grows, and we end up with hundreds of people, some quiet and some chatty, some interested in one thing, some in another.
Hives don't have developmental stages -- they're small and then they're big. But individual insects do, so let's call where we're at right now the egg phase. Once we get to $250, we'll be larvae, and then we'll start growing legs and stuff, and-- okay, this metaphor gets a little unwieldy, but you know what I mean. Tell people to join us, and we'll do something interesting here.
