🌼 Rosieland is blossoming! We've got some spring vibes going on and it feels good!
This week I published a piece on Community Pairing and how to build the idea of pairs into your community strategy. And funnily enough, I happen to be pairing with Tony this week as we explore Gather — we'd love it if you joined in too!
Also on Rosieland this week:
- it's conversation first, not community first
- recording and slides from Community Marketing event
- applications for my MVC cohort are still open
- ...and help me curate a mega list of Code of Conducts...
❤️ I'm an indie creator, support my work and help me keep going by getting a paid membership.
