I started out with a stack of around 150 'Portals' postcards that were left over from my visit to Rustycon 31 in Seattle. Rather than let them sit forever I decided to send them out as 'Thank You' cards to those who support my work.
Furthermore I thought it would be great to teach Ian and Jason a lesson about what their Dad does for a living . Every week thereafter they have been signing the cards which we then send out all over the world to the folks who have supported my artwork through Memberships, Renewals, and other means.
We've signed and sent out thousands of cards since then and they have proven to be very popular with my fans.
How to get a Thank You card?
All new and renewing Members (or equivalent $20 donation) will receive one. In addition, all Lifetime Members who choose to continue their support (either by becoming a Supporter or choosing to add one of the new Membership levels will receive a Thank You card.The front will be signed by me and the back will be signed by the Bliss family (myself, Jessie, Ian and Jason).
Writing out the address of each Member has been a great way for me and my family to connect with the people who are supporting my work. Having my boys see each name and address has given them a better appreciation for where their food, clothing and shelter comes from!
Thanks to everyone who has participated!!
I think's fascinating to see where our cards ended up. It's especially helpful to show my boys that there are real people at the other end of the line.
Send me a photo of your card in its new home (feel free to be in the photo if you'd like) so I can share them in a gallery of DB fans. You can post the photo on my Facebook page here, on Twitter/Instagram, or email it to me if you like. The more creative the better...
