Patreon | Revised, Awesomized

Normal Happenings is growing, and just by being part of our wonderful blogging community, you are helping us accomplish our goals! Our readers (and soon, viewers and listeners) simply must be some of the most amazing people in the world! Gosh, that feels so good to say!

Our old Patreon model, while fitting for the direction we thought Normal Happenings was going for its time, ended up not working out the way we planned.

Time is valuable, and we think you probably at least have a passing familiarity with our work. The goals, the tiers, and even the upcoming promotional video have been vastly simplified to reflect the future ambitions of Normal Happenings! So, what does that future look like? It’s as simple as one, two, three.

Farewell Nice Job Badges, You Will Be Missed

Highlights:

  • We’re discontinuing Nice Job Badges, even through they are popular.
  • It’s very challenging to pick just a handful of amazing blog posts in a week!
  • We’ll be highlighting amazing posts on Twitter and Daily Inklings.

Happy Friday, everyone! Or, perhaps, a melancholy Friday instead. We’ve made the decision here at Normal Happenings to discontinue one of our more popular features, Nice Job Badges.

Happy Friday, everyone! So, this week we have a very interesting situation in which a lot of very cool people responded to our tags all at once. We’re no stranger to giving away Nice Job Badges to those who reply to our Daily Inklings and Super Specific Awards, but this week was insane. We can’t promise to do this every time, but today we’ll be awarding badges to five responses to our activities this week.

Greetings everyone, we hope you’re enjoying the second Friday of the year! Of course, here in St. Louis, we’re on the eve of a major league snowstorm, so we hope it’s nice, sunny, and warm wherever you are. Anyway, let’s kick off the weekend with some Nice Job Badges!

Well hello there! I hope the first four days of your 2019 have been a smashing success! It turns out that we haven’t given out Nice Job Badges since September 21, 2018. Yikes, talk about a great thing getting lost within the holiday frenzy of posts. We’re going to try to do better this year, dedicating Fridays purely to badges. As such, we’ve also removed a lot of bloat from the format, focusing instead on these brilliant writers. No more using badge posts as an excuse for updates — just an intro, five Nice Job Badges, and a brief conclusion.
