When I joined masto, I gravitated towards following creative peeps and noticed a thing that's pretty common to all of us: we feel guilty for promoting places that people can buy our work or otherwise support us financially. So I started the #CreativeToots hashtag for that very reason. Got an Etsy page? Online store? Patreon? Selling a piece of art? Throw that tag on it. Do it with unfettered abandon. Everyone else: Look at that tag for artists to support. Buy their stuff. Help them create. <3


@WelshPixie Thanks Del. That's a good idea and I hope it helps attract support for the work many of us are doing.

Instead of setting up a page on one of the online sites, I created my own page, showing work I've been doing for past 24 years to help make mentor-rich non-school programs available to youth in high poverty areas, and inviting people to offer financial support. Here's the link. tutormentorconference.org/20-y
