A Community on How to Build Community

Yes, this is pretty meta. And… I’m doing it anyway.

My team and I have been working hard to put together the next iteration of our product, a pretty low-fi piece of software that should help solve a critical piece in what I hope to be a much larger (and useful!) solution.

I have no idea if it’ll work and it’ll take months to even get an idea if waht we’ve done is useful and meaningful. I suppose that’ the beauty of a startup. I like experimenting so this is kind of my jam.

A product / service that I’ve put together to accompany our little piece of a mvp is a bootcamp on community-building which is something I know a little bit about.

One of the original sign-up forms that I was going to use. YEN.CAMP

It feels and sounds meta but it’s not — I think it’s what I do better than most things. Deciding to lean into some of those things, though, have taken time; I just wasn’t ready.

The best way to learn how to build a community is by actually doing it oneself. Better still is to have a community around you that can help provide genuine feedback on your efforts as you build and grow an increasingly-important skill in today’s digital world.

Ergo, a community for community-building. I’m starting with the first cohort in just a few days and I couldn’t be more excited.

I hope to not disappoint!
