2022 HWFO Year in Review
Highlights from this past year, and some personal stuff
State of the Blog
2022 was a good year for the publication and for me personally. We now look like a real publication:
We have tabs, which is nice. We have a merch store with coffee mugs, hats, apparel, etc:
We’re closing in on 3,000 subscribers:
The private Slack server for paid subscribers continues to grow, and is approaching 200 active members:
State of the Author
I released my third EP, available on all streaming services as far as I’m aware.
I performed at a couple of shows, including this benefit concert for RAINN: (streaming copy of the set is at this link.)
Most important among my 2023 plans for the blog is throwing the first, possibly annual, possibly last depending on how it goes, HWFOCon with some of the subscription money. This is basically going to be a invite-only weekend long pool party where folks can show up, camp out, grill out, and talk to each other about HWFOish concepts. If you’re interested, upgrade your subscription to paid and join the Slack server, which is where all this planning will take place.
