Creator Appreciation Day

create

My buddy and fellow game designer Chip came up with this idea and I thoroughly support it! Sure I’ve created things but I also enjoy a TON of other things that many people spent long hours creating.

On the first weekend in March 2016, I charge you to

  1. Pick three things you enjoy that were created by someone (songs, podcast, game, movie, app, recipe, etc.)
  2. Let the creator know how much you enjoy that thing (rate it on Spotify, write a review on iTunes, become a fan on BoardGameGeek.com, write a YouTube comment, rate it in the app store, tweet to the creator #CreatorAppreciationDay , become a facebook fan, write a review for Amazon, comment on their kickstarter campaign, etc.)
  3. Share with your friends either in person (schedule a Show and Tell party where you take turns sharing your favorite music, or playing your favorite game) or on social media.
  4. Discover new creators that your friends recommend.

Rules (ok, guidelines):

  1. This is not about money. It’s great to financially support your favorite creators via crowdfunding, patreon, buying products, etc. But this is about expressing appreciation.
  2. Focus on living creators. Let’s appreciate people while they are around to enjoy it.

About Ben

I'm a geek. A nerd, a dweeb, whatever. Yes I owned garb, yes I still own medieval weaponry. And yeah, I could kick your butt in Mechwarrior the CCG. I love video games, role playing games, tactical board games and all forms of speculative fiction. I will never berate someone for wanting to be a Jedi and take everything Gary Gygax ever wrote as gospel. Well, all of this but that last bit.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
