Again, through the wonders of time-travel, I’m writing a post on Sunday that should have been published on Wednesday, but that’s useful at least in terms of deciding what happens to both this website and my Patreon going forward. If you’re a Patron and have not yet taken part in my Feedback Survey, you can expect an email to ask you to consider giving some next week, before I open up the process to the general public. I’m quite happy with the way that poetry is now running, and organising a month’s content in advance has given a lot of freedom for other projects to take flight. Therefore, next month, I’ll be doing the same with a twist.
This year the festive season will be celebrated in a very particular way: I’ll be producing 25 Haiku up to and including Christmas Day. However, I will be taking the Christmas period off: last day of ‘work’ for me will be December 22nd, returning to full activity on January 2nd. It is still not clear what December’s Patreon content will be, but I’ll have a better idea after the Feedback Survey is concluded. What I will be doing is starting to write the Haiku next week, as many of them will need particular festive pictures as accompaniment.
I suspect there may be an Audio Advent Calendar too as there’s never a bad time to share music, however that’s not going to need that much additional planning. I’ve decided to not push particularly hard for new Patrons in December but to leave that for 2018: yes, I could give it a go but as most people’s cash over this time of year is quite difficult to come by, it seems only right and proper to not push the point.
Watch this space for more details of how Patreon may change, and what new things might be in store for the end of 2017…
