Whoa. This is cool. It's nice to be noticed. Thank you.
I'm here because I love the creator-first mindset. I haven't really done much since signing up because it feels like everyone's primarily focused on the crypto-blockchain, niche-auction, revenue-model stuff moreso than content creation.
It's neat, but I'm not interested in any of that; just interested in publishing someplace where the content—and content creator—is valued, and can maybe make a little money in the long run. I've never really been one for actively monetizing my content (at least, not effectively, anyway), so I'm currently on the sidelines listening for anything related to content creation—ideally within a niche where the niche owner is in it for the content and fellow creators moreso than a source of revenue.
I'm very much the business exists to make a difference—profits follow—school of thought. Profits follow results. Greater profits follow meaningful results.
You know, if anyone was wondering why I haven't been more active. I was really excited to jump on this thing when I saw the ad on Instagram, and even moreso when I saw the second round was opening up at 1,500 (and I'd signed up at 1,490 or so.
From a content perspective, I've been publishing Gearbox Magazine since 2009, Work Life Parallel since 2015, and work in customer success for a freelancer-first SaaS startup called ClearVoice. My background beyond these is account-based content marketing, B2C eCommerce, data center operations, and higher ed curriculum development.
Lots of potential here. I'm fast approaching a major reorganization of my publishing efforts, so I'm watching to see how things here shake out so I can maybe diversify some of my content efforts in this direction.
Thanks for noticing me. Really cool. Don't stop believing.
