Founded a new company
Can't give too many details yet. But working on a new company that I think will change the world of community management forever.

Filmed a tutorial
As my company has leaned further into Discord, I've become a FIRM believer that Discord is the perfect community solution for the No-Code industry.

Everyone defaults to Slack because it's what they know, but Discord not only is FREE but has so much more to offer!

I published a video today on why I think Integromat should switch from Facebook to Discord. Hopefully, they and other brands start to take note!

One 12 hour marathon no-code session later, and my second web app is done!

Launched Playground.PlayTyme.co, built entirely with @softr_io, @airtable, @ternarydev, @discord!

My company is creating the very first age-gated and well-moderated community space for kinksters 🙌 I’m so damn proud of what I created. And I can’t wait to serve our community the RIGHT way 🥰

Building an MVP
Nearly done with PlayTyme's first MVP. Built and designed entirely with no-code tools 😎

We’ve launched our mobile app with TapCart and are building our partner program with Softr & Airtable. Our Product Wiki and Directory use Notion!

It always feels good to 📣#buildinpublic

Okay, I'm gonna toot my own horn to this one 📯

Community.PlayTyme.co

So I jumped into using Super and Notion to build PlayTyme's new community homepage 🦘 And I have to say, I'm thrilled with the results thus far!

There's still some work to be done with navigation and content. However, updates are super easy to handle due to the connectivity between Notion and Super 💪🏾

During this process, we noticed we were having to re-create the same blocks over and over. So we're building a library of pre-formatted, commonly used blocks. Moving forward, we can just copy and paste them throughout our workspace as needed, greatly increasing our productivity and workflows.

Once we have things more complete, I plan to make a Loom video walking through some of the key features. We intend to make the community layout and the block library available for purchase as Notion templates. I truly feel a lot of other organizations could find value with them.

Was Interviewed
I'm still kind of shook over this 😳! After seeing the Twitter thread I posted about LGBT creators on Polywork, the company actually reached out to me directly!

They decided to do a 🏳‍🌈Pride Month series on their blog, featuring an LGBT professional on Polywork throughout the month of June.

I feel so honored to be selected and impressed at the lengths they've gone to show their commitment to diversity and inclusion.

Yet another reason to love being on this platform.
