Welcome to a New Community Frontier
I decided I wanted to provide a space for the Dazzle While Frazzled community to come together to make meaningful connections with each other.
Personally, I’ve cut most of social media out of my life. It’s been fantastic, honestly.
We as humans need and want to make connections with people. Online communities are a great way to connect with people we might not have a chance to met in person otherwise. It’s time for a new type of social networking though – silos of networks based on a mutual interest.
That’s why I’m excited to launch this community on a platform called Rocket Chat.
Rocket Chat is a service that allows us to create channels to have interesting conversations around a topic. It allows us to send private messages to other members of the community. Rocket Chat even allows audio and video calls!
I’m not trying to make a sales pitch for Rocket Chat. haha
But if you want to know more about the platform we’ll be using, you can check them out here.
Why are we using Rocket Chat instead of Facebook?
1 – Rocket Chat (RC) values privacy. So do I. If you also value privacy, you’ll like RC.
Facebook is tracking you and monitoring your conversations – anything they can use to push you ads and keep you trapped in the FB ecosystem for as long as possible.
RC has no such goal.
2 – RC doesn’t have ads.
So, you’ll never see ads while in the community. Every post will be from a member of the community.
There will be special deals and discounts provided to members, but those will be curated by me for the group. And I’ll be responding to your feedback – not pumping ads to your screen.
3 – RC is platform agnostic.
For the non-techies reading this, that means Rocket Chat works on any of your devices – Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, and Linux.
This makes our community super inclusive. Anybody can join, whether or not they have a Facebook profile.
4 – RC provides us distraction-free communication.
It was built for work teams to avoid emails. So, it’s easy to use and super functional.
We decide what goes in the community chats, not some tech platform that can change the rules, censor you, spy on you, etc.
You can keep track of all your conversations and easily keep track of all the chats happening in the community without getting lost in an endless scroll of Facebook noise.
What are the benefits of the community?
We will be giving away one Cricut Explore Air 2 for every 100 paying members in the community in November.
Since everyone gets a free 30-day trial, sign up now!
The first discount for members will be on Down Home Products.
They offer a lot of great rustic decor products for the home. If you’re going for farmhouse vibe, you’ll definitely enjoy their selection.
The coolest thing for me though is the custom printing! Get your favorite family photos printed on wood or metal to get those great photos off your phone and on your wall!
Members get a super discount of 25% OFF their entire order!
We’ll be giving away 3 SVG files per month to our wonderful members!
Members can also help decide on what kind of files they would like to see in future months, so sign up early and let me know what you want to receive!
We will look for more freebies to give all members as we grow – and we’ll definitely make those announcements proudly!
We’ll be providing extra content exclusively for members. That will come in the form of blog posts, ebooks, and video content.
Again, members can make requests, and we’ll do our best to deliver those things to the community.
The Community Itself
Connecting with other DIYers and chatting about projects sounds fun, yes?!
Join today and let’s get connected!
Looking forward to chatting with you all!
