For many years, I have hosted this blog offering tips and tools to strengthen our creativity practices, thoughts on how to make a living and create a life, and other random musings on the experience of being a creative soul in a productivity obsessed society, and please know that I will continue to post writing, news, and the like in this space.
In addition, I am giving myself permission to experiment with creating a Substack weekly newsletter that you can learn more about and subscribe to over here. I’d like to continue reflecting on creativity practices both here and on Substack, AND expand my palette as a writer, so you can also expect posts exploring whatever may be on my mind at the present moment and how I’m processing this wild, wonderful life I’m making. I’ll also keep you updated about upcoming projects, publications, online events, and the like over in the Substack space. Whether they be scraps of poetry, journaling prompts, or recent inspirations from some of my favorite creatives, my hope is that what I share in this new little corner of the digital world finds a home in your own creative hearts.
Will I still post on this website? Yes! I will still post writing here at The Perpetual Visitor, I'm simply adding Substack as a newsletter option and additional platform for those who prefer engaging in that way. It's an exciting new experiment for me!
Why Subscribe over at Substack? When you subscribe to my Substack, you will get a weekly newsletter, as well as regular posts in this space aimed to help you reflect on your own creative practice, and how deeply appreciating stories can offer us powerful tools to process the wild, wonderful, and sometimes weird experience of being human.
I know from personal experience that multiple platforms can be a little overwhelming, so feel free to continue to engage in the one that makes the most sense for you.
For now, I’ll be posting all Substack content for free, and in the coming weeks, will implement a paid tier for subscribers. I’ve never charged for my writing online before, and though the Inner Imposter starts to get loud with criticism when I consider a crowdfunded platform, my value of sustainability has been slowly but surely encouraging me to find ways to create and cultivate care for myself at the same time. A paid subscription model will be an experiment in dedicating myself more deeply to this kind of sustainability, hopefully allowing me to make and rest in a way that feels nourishing for both me and you. I’ll keep you posted as this experiment unfurls!
