Things are a-changin’, both here and on my Patreon. Obviously, I can’t make Content™ on my own anymore. There’s both a conflict of interest and I truly don’t have the time with work commitments. But these are all good things!
What’s changing for the newsletter?
First and foremost, the format. If you’ve been following along, you’ve probably expected an announcement along these lines. We’re not done discussing politics and how you can change the world. We just might not talk about it every week. This is in part for my sanity. The other part is continuing to uphold the frequency. Sometimes I just don’t have the emotional energy to write out a deep dive on how to topple the patriarchy. Other weeks? I’ll write you a goddamn manifesto. I’m just trying this new thing were I try and respect my own limitations when they come up.
What’s changing for the Patreon?
We’re focusing on two things come the new year: community and personal space. I think it’s incredibly important to carve out your personal space. I am a fierce defender of my physical personal space, and I see no reason not to be the same online. It occurs to me that the foundation of that personal space already exists in the community that we’re building as a team. So, tiers will be changing to remove anything Content™ related and becoming spaces for personal essays, advice, rant sessions, etc. More hard details will come to subscribers before they’re charged at the beginning of the year! And, as always, if you’ve got suggestions or something you’d like to see, you can always respond to these newsletters.
And now, without further adieu, here are my Top 10 films of 2021. (It’s technically eleven. Fight me.)
