InkBlot's Newsletter: Still Blotting!
[Portfolio Layouts, Membership Drives, InkBlot Merch, Hiring & More! Oh my!
Happy New Year!
I hope the new year has been treating you all well! Here at InkBlot we are still going strong and continue to grow everyday with a creeping 22,000 users!
We have been pushing out updates every 7-10 days at this rate and are still seeing growth everyday with our userbase! Thank you for the continued support, we were afraid that InkBlot would be a short ‘trend’ for a bit but since November 2022 we are still seeing continued growth and support.
Though we are falling just short of our monthly supporter goal to keep inkblot afloat! Over the last few weeks we have fallen below that rate (3%) ! We are now offering biannual and annual membership options via our pro membership system on InkBlot! Or if you are able to you can buy us a butterfly!
We appreciate all of our pro members/patrons/donors! You seriously keep InkBlot moving forward! THANK YOU
Recently there has been a great demand and need for a portfolio, and while most (us too!) suggest that creatives have their own site, it is not always possible. The team worked in a porfolio layout into our update pipeline and Pro Members now have the ability to change their profile layout to a minimal and sleek layout via settings. This is live right now!
Grab InkBlot Merch to support development!
Looking for ways to support InkBlot? We have opened our Kofi Shop again! There you can find exclusive stickers, posters and merch from our Kickstarter and more! All purchases will support development! Check it out!
Membership Drive & Hiring!
Within our budget, we have swapped out a support team member position for a Moderator Lead position! We are looking for an experienced individual that can assist with managing the moderation team! This position is U.S Resident only as a 1099 Contractor position.
We are also looking for volunteers to help with our upcoming Membership Drive! This is a opportunity for domestic and international folks! Check it out!
Membership Drive? Well we are planning to do an annual drive for InkBlot to stay. More on this as we grow closer but expect Art , Rewards & More!
Otherwise as always we will continue to serve this community as best as we can! Our Quarterly Townhall is this Saturday via Twitch with a recording being uploaded to our Youtube 48 hours after! De sure to join us over there to hear about behind the scenes and more as we move ahead into 2023!
Quick Internet Tips for the Modern Day Creator
Social media seems like its just a ‘necessity’ to get your work out in the world and we’re here to tell you its not but it could be helpful! Though if you give it whirl try to be safe & alert with these few tips:
Share with care: Be cautious how much personal info you give out when posting. When in doubt leave it out! Most people do not share their last name, job place, phone number or even post pictures of easily identifiable places.
Enable multi-factor authentication: This is a MUST! As security tactics improve hackers get smarter! Think of them being always one step ahead. Turn on your two-step authentication regardless of how little you use a site or not.
Think before you click: Clicking on download links from weird emails, random posts you find on forums or even use seemingly friendly google drive links. If you don’t know who is giving you that link or something seems ‘off’ (for example someone you haven’t spoken to in a long time or not at all on discord sends a random link) just ask them to clarify what it or don’t click it.
Use long unique passwords with a password manager: Self explainable!
