Hi all. I sent this out to our Patreon members earlier today, and while I said in that note that I would be raising the topic in the forums today in a way that implied I'd write something different, I realize now that writing something different is silly, so I'm simply pasting the same message here.
This is absolutely open for conversation, but it is not open, as will become clear when you get to the end, to arguments against the basic tenet that all people must enjoy the ability to live as they choose to live and not only to do so safely, but in a manner that enables them to thrive.
I figured I'd try to start a thread to see if I could break it. 😉 Here's a little Q&A that might be fun to introduce ourselves:
My name is _____.
I live in or around ___________.
I go by _________ on Facebook.
Other places/accounts you can find me on (Instagram, Twitter, Ravelry)...
Crafty/Make-y stuff I do...
Other things I like are.....
Why'd I join?
And now my answers:
My name is Corrie!
I live in or around Omaha, Nebraska. I'm originally an Air Force kid from all over, but landed in DC, then move here for my husband in 2005.
I go by Corrie Oberdin on Facebook.
Other places/accounts you can find me on (Instagram, Twitter, Ravelry)... Instagram: corriemakes365; Ravelry: Corrie
Crafty/Make-y stuff I do...Knitting, spinning, crocheting, drawing, collaging, and I just made my first soap and uh-oh, that might be a thing.
Other things I like are.....yoga, aerial (right now approximately 60% of my brain is taken up by this - I used to scroll through Instagram looking at yarn, now I scroll through instagram looking at aerialists and my husband asked me if I was planning to join the circus), reading, not being stuck in the snow, hiking, going on adventures with my kids.
Why'd I join? I joined because I got SO MUCH out of the Daily Making Jumpstart that this seemed like the obvious next step! I work on my own, usually from my dining room table, and my regular contact with adults who aren't my husband is limited to yoga/aerial class and my clients. So this is a great way to engage with other people.
I've just updated the Patreon plugin again, so hopefully this will clear up some of the bugs you've been experiencing.
@Sandi Wiseheart and @Nectaryne, I'm not sure the update is anything to do with the issue we discussed about having to reconnect over and over, but maybe it fixes the problem. Please let me know if the problem is still occurring (please clear your browser cache), or if it's cleared up.
Apparently, Patreon made some changes on their end that affected the plugin and drove this new update. Fingers crossed the connection is more robust now!
