2019 Plans: Simplify, Create, Thrive

Today I want to talk about my plans for this site in the coming year. I am getting comfortable with blogging regularly again, even if things still feel a bit unfocused and all over the place. There have been new posts consistently for a couple of weeks. The current schedule I’ve been working with allows me to run the business, have a life, and do this without too much stress. Having one scheduled post per day, but leaving myself open to do a second or even third off-the-cuff post if I have the time and inclination is working, according to the statistics and feedback I’ve been getting. So let’s keep going!

2019 Plans: Simplify, Create, Thrive

My one goal with this blog is to just be more open. Both social media and real life have taken a toll on me over the past decade, and I’m only just now starting to feel like myself again. I can be guarded but still share. There are ways to deal with issues as the arise, but I’m taking of living like a hermit because people are rude, cruel, and willfully ignorant.

I just want this to be the best possible version of my blog that I am capable of producing. There’s a schedule and some quality control, but what’s most important to me is having a voice. I’m going to create what I want, the way that I want, and look for the audience that appreciates that.

At present there are no plans to try to monetize this site, aside from having the “Buy Me a Coffee”. That said, I want to build it into an effective platform so that if I ever do want to monetize it in some way, either through selling books, having sponsorships, or leveraging affiliate programs, I can.

  • At least one new post daily, scheduled for 9am EST1.
  • A weekly newsletter-type synopsis post2, Sundays at 3pm EST.
  • A weekly podcast, posted here3 on Sundays at 12pm EST.
  • A monthly digital zine, hosting TBD4. This will basically be an ebook of the past month’s posts.

How You Can Help

  • Share – Let other people know what I’m up to! Pass it along on social media, on your own blog,  vlog, or podcast, through email, whatever works for you!
  • Subscribe – On the sidebar (if you’re on a computer) or at the bottom of the page (on a tablet or phone) you can get sign up to be notified when new posts go up!
  • Buy a Book – I’ve got tons of bestselling titles for tabletop roleplayers and creating writers available. If that’s your thing, tell someone who might enjoy it!
  • Buy Me a Coffee – We don’t have a Patreon, but if you want to contribute to the cause on a one-time or ongoing monthly basis, you can. Check it out!
  • Give Me Feedback – Leave a comment below and let me know what you think!
  1. New York time, as opposed to EET, Finland time. For reasons.
  2. This may evolve into an actual newsletter. For now, if you’re subscribing to the site and getting email notification of new posts, it’s effectively a newsletter. Having you sign up for something else is redundant.
  3. I don’t have any else to say here, I’m just having fun with this footnote plugin.
  4. I’m looking for off-site options mainly so I can use the faux-zine to drive traffic here to the site.
