Having shutdown my Tumblr blog a while back, I yearned for a place to express myself in respectful public forum. I think I finally found my people.

Initially, I just wanted a place to get my work seen. What I did not expect is to receive such amazing and positive support from this site.

Why is this a paid membership site?
It’s a question we get all the time and the answer is simple.

We want to build a community free of advertising and other forms of user exploitation. By making the membership $10/month, we can keep the servers on and re-invest back into making the platform bigger and better. Our goal is a robust community of like-minded individuals, and by asking our members to invest in it via a small fee, we can ensure it’s evolution into the future.

We do offer student discounts and other promotions from time to time. Reach out to us below should you have any questions or inquires.
