You may have noticed that the past few newsletters that I’ve sent have been separated by more than a week, including this one where I took a holiday break.
I’ve been working on building out a better process for making newsletters, to streamline it a bit and still make time to keep them interesting. Creating things is hard!
My mind has moved a lot lately to creating. I have realized that there is a not terrible chance that people will actually help fund me to do the fun creative things that I want to do for a living. I’ve thought about this for a decade now, and am planning on making 2023 the year where it happens.
I want to talk about the weird internet! I want to build things and help educate and share with others! I want to make art that means something to me and inspires and brings joy to others.
I’m incredibly thankful that people already like what I do online, and that spaces exist to share and grow with one another. I keep putting off some of these projects, because as I said, creating is hard. Still, it brings some meaning to my life, and my goal for 2023 is to bring it to others as well.
Separate of all of this, I had a lovely set of holidays with friends, family and partners. I have been feeling extra mushy lately, and while my mood shifts constantly and I am far more fatigued than I’d like to be, I try to retain gratitude for those around me. My friends and partners are amazing, and while writing this I’m feeling tremendous love for them.
I look forward to seeing you all in the new year, and want to be there for you as much as you are for me. Stay awesome, and keep spreading love 🥰
If you made it this far, why not share this newsletter with a friend? Or share with me some of the things that you found that you liked this week. Either way, I’m thrilled!
