I just opened a Patreon account. Again, like with many other things, I don’t exactly know how this works yet. This is for the purpose of learning, so if you’d like to participate, feel free to “pledge” the absolute minimum, and I’ll make sure that everyone gets all the “benefits.” It appears that I can do “private videos” on this platform, so we’ll see. Maybe this can be a form of consulting or where I do Q & A videos, or maybe I’ll draw a mandala on video and do a give-away. This is all new for me, but I will report on the progress, just as I’ll be doing with WordPress, Facebook, Spreaker Podcasts, Cafepress, etc.
While sorting through the images on https://www.logomaker.com, I ran across this scribble image, which is hardly an image at all. The advantage of using this, or something like it, would be the ability to draw the logo myself, anywhere, anytime. I could “sign autographs” like this. Ummm, yea right … but still, I like this overall idea.
This logo would need to be modified to remove the printed circuit board in the background. A potential slogan for it is cute, but doesn’t quite fit into a raw capitalism mindset, i.e. “If you have a Pulse, you deserve to get paid.” Well, nobody actually “deserves” anything from anyone unless it’s earned, but this was the first image that jumped out at me and gave me an idea for a matching slogan. I’ll keep looking.
I’m using a LogoMaker site here, sorting through all their standard images. It helps to fomulate a better idea. It’s obvious for instance, that choosing the silhouette of the woman would definately send the wrong message. The lolipop is too young, the rooftop is for a realtor, the group hug feels like social work, so the sorting through these images is a valuable exercise.
This is a combination of a palm tree at the Kona Hawaii airport on my Android phone, the app called “Phonto” and the text that I added to the photo. I uploaded it to my personal Facebook page, then downloaded it to my computer, then re-uploaded it to WordPress. I’ll have to look for a more direct upload path.
