The DigiKast's first miniblog.
We love to write, but…
Hi! It’s Rob and Sherry from The DigiKast. You probably already know that, but we want to welcome all the new people who may now know anything about us. We are The DigiKast and we run a vlog and podcast centered mostly around budget travel. Our topics and interests also meander around gaming, aquariums/fish keeping, and the ups and downs of blended family life raising teenage girls.
1. Why this, why now, why not long form?
We wanted to have a space where we could post a rant or explore a topic that was too long for a tweet (well, Toot on Mastodon if we’re being honest about Twitter’s future) but wasn’t long enough for a full blog or video. Writing is one of our passions and we don’t have enough time to explore it as much as we’d like. Having a dedicated space where we can just put some digital pen to paper is perfect for us.
2. What kind of community are you looking to build here
Are we looking for the classic “like-minded individuals”?
We don’t want to turn anyone away, but we would love to speak to and hear from people of all walks of life. We like to think of ourselves as diverse and open minded so we cast a wide net with our personal friend groups. The DigiKast is all about learning and inclusion, so we’d like to grow our community the same way. We have a growing discord where we can talk about whatever and would love to see that continue to flourish.
3. Be specific
We’ll post whenever the mood strikes. If you’d like to see more from us, please hit us up! We’d love to monetize this, but it feels a little weird…. if you would like to support us though, please also hit us up! We have a public paypal and are looking into the donation/subscription options here too, especially if it’s a thing that people want.
4. Use an image and “subscribe” buttons
