Summary for the week ending Feb 5, 2017

Here’s a summary of activity for the week ending February 5th, 2017.

I started Hermetic Library on Instagram this weekend. Consider checking that out and following along, if you like.

What winter storm, comrade? I am quite warm.

I’ve had an account set up for Hermetic Library on TinyLetter for quite some time. I’ve not started to use it, but I’ve been contemplating the idea of using it for something. I could just use it to post the weekly summary to email, but I generally like doing something a little different for each channel I use, though there’s always some overlap. So, I’ve been thinking about something like weekly email letters with a couple of paragraphs of ramble about something I’m thinking. Maybe something I’ve been reading made me think of something that I’ll write about; or there’s something on the site that I’ve been working on that caught my mind for a moment and I’ll write about that. Maybe I’ll write poetry or start doing some art that I’l post. Maybe there will be some other special stuff I come up with just for those following via email. I don’t know! But, I’ll tell you what: If I get 93 subscribers to the email list, I’ll start using it. I’ll aim for weekly email letters. And, as long as there’s at least 93 people listening, I’ll keep going. Help get that started by signing up!

In the back of my head I’ve been flirting with the idea of setting up regular office hours, and a periodic voice conference; probably using a hypothetical Hermetic Library server on Discord, which I haven’t set up yet. Perhaps active participation will be for Patrons, but open for everyone to listen in. I might also record my side as a video and post that after. I wonder if that’s something that could be a thing. I’ll keep thinking about it, unless, you know, I end up just doing it. Now I’m just speculating, but I can imagine all kinds of vloggish things I could do (or a call in talk show?!), but if you’ve thoughts about that, or ideas you’d like to suggest, or if you’re into participating, then let me know!

Here’s a summary of posts on the blog from last week
