Crowdfunding is always a gamble. But one thing that should be steady is how the platform works that you chose to use to get your project out into the world. Change and evolution are inevitable, but change for the sake of change often leads to rash decisions. Is the current Kickstarter situation an example of blunder playing out before our eyes? Or are a lot of people blowing things way out of proportion?
Writing comics and making games is fun and all, but don’t you want other people to see them? You can probably sucker get friends to look at them but I have a feeling your dreams are bigger than just the people you know in real life. But how can you pull that off?
Kickstarter might be a good idea. Now if only I could get someone from over there on the show. I know, how about Oriana Leckert? Who better to help us understand the inner workings of Kickstarter than the Director of Publishing & Comics Outreach? Yeah, I can’t think of anyone better either.
More than anything else right now, I want to make sure that everyone one of you is doing alright in every way possible. We’re going through a lot of shit and while taking care of your mental health is really important we as a society aren’t in a place yet where it’s always something that can be talked about openly. That needs to change.
This is one reason why I’m so excited to talk to Justin Richards about his Kickstarter project A Silent Night. Dealing with depression and anxiety is something that you definitely don’t have to do alone. I’m not saying that backing this Kickstarter project will help, but it will get the conversation out into the world in a more public way and I have to see that as a good thing. Plus Justin is just A grade good people. Can’t really go wrong there.
