Five Years of Memberships. ⇒

Craig Mod writes about running his Special Projects membership program for the last five years. I became a member myself this past year. My original reason for becoming a member felt very transactional: I wanted to get one of his books, and it seemed like I may as well also support him while doing so. Having been a member this past year, that feels like the entirely wrong way to approach what he’s doing. It’s honestly not really that great a “deal” if you just want to buy some books or prints. You kind of have to want more for it to make any sense. Almost a year on, I do feel like i’m contributing a very small part to helping make something good.

Don't be shy, you can comment too!

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google":http://www.google.com will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
