It has been a fantastic run for me here on WordPress. I have been able to add authors, share others’ stories, and above all, share my journey with mental illness on this platform Since 2017! What a run. Over 1600 posts, 304,000 views, almost 15,000 followers, countless authors who became a part of the blog, and the plethora of comments made The Bipolar Writer Blog a success over the years. All good things come to an end.
The Bipolar Writer is my brand and moniker. I will be moving to two platforms. The first being Buy Me a Coffee, where my blogging will continue as The Bipolar Writer blog. The second will be The Bipolar Writer Podcast, where I will continue to share the community’s stories by giving a place to share your voice. The end of this blog is set for March 12, 2021, and you will see some of the last blog posts in the coming days.
As much as I have enjoyed WordPress and sharing my experiences for free, I learned a valuable lesson in 2020, that monetizing is the way to go, and Buy Me a Coffee is a better version of Patreon, and it allows you, the follower of this blog, to become a part of my blogging, podcasting, and writing. I hope many of you will come over to the new platform. The great thing is that you can do one-time support or become a member and reap the benefits like signed copies of my books, t-shirts, and many more to come in 2021.
I am not ruling out a return to The Bipolar Writer Blog this summer, but I have a significant project, The Many Faces and Voices of Mental Illness, my advocacy work with the podcast, and plenty of work within the advocacy realm in the future. I am running a special, purchase 5 coffees in the next 24 hours and get a free lifetime membership. This platform will allow me to do so much advocacy work.
The emails over the years, the connections that I had, the people that reached out will continue on the new platform. You can use the button above or below to join. I encourage you that if you have liked the blog’s content to consider coming over and being a part of something unique, new, and memorable. This blog brought me so much joy over the years, and I hope to continue that on a new platform. It is indeed time for me to move on from WordPress.
