We, and I mean my collaborators and myself, have turned The Bipolar Writer blog into something amazing. A place where people can come together and share their mental illness experiences in a safe place.
I never intended for this blog to reach so many amazing people, and I think back to when I started this thing, 12,200 followers would have been the ideal dream, and yet here we are still growing, and I could not be more proud of everyone that is a part of this amazing journey. Like all good things, eventually, this blog will find its end, just not right now.
I know it is in the future, but I wanted to tell people now that this blog will most likely have an end date as I move towards blogging more on Patreon than on WordPress. This account will be up in February 2020, and I will be either selling the blog off, as I have gotten offers in the past, or move it over to a single blog about my writing and mental health on Patreon.Become a Patron!https://c6.patreon.com/becomePatronButton.bundle.js
This blog means the world to me, and the other option I am looking at is finding an administrator willing to continue what we have built, and I step away only writing one or two posts a month. I am balancing a lot lately. For those that don’t know, I am a graduate student working on my MFA in Creative Writing and English. I am writing full-time (Rise of the Nephilim officially became the first draft instead of a work-in-progress this week) and, of course, I have my freelance writing that takes up time. I want to focus on my writing and school from here on out, and Patreon is my way of doing blogging, writing, and school without worrying about making sure everything is perfect here. There are not enough hours in the day.
I have time maybe four or five times a month to blog. My focus, though a frustrating process, has been growing my Patreon account. I think once I get an official publishing date for The Bipolar Writer Memoir and some physical and digital copies I can offer more on my Patreon like my memoir, it will be easier to get people to join me on my Patreon journey.
This blog means the world to me and I want to continue to allow my contributors to call this place home, even if it is without me.
It was you my fellow bloggers that gave me the courage to start this blog, and I could not have done it without you. So, if it means this blog continues without me, I am okay with that, but know that at the end of the year, my content will be shifting to deal with the changing times. Patreon gives me the chance to do great things with my writing, allowing me to add new things like a podcast and videos. I hope that you will become a part of this new great thing in my life.
With that said, stat strong in the fight.
Always Keep Fighting
