Editor's Note 15,02-22

Thanks to everyone who has joined us Saturday for the M3 Weekly Hangout. I really appreciate the level of participation we've gotten from our contributors and viewers. It seems that a week passes by so quickly when it gets time to prepare for the hangouts. It can take up a large chunk of one's weekend, so I'm very much appreciative of the people who take time out of their day to help M3 grow as a community. I do it because I see it as a mission to spread unity and produce uplifting content. I'm sure many others do so just for the company, but for whatever reason people support us I'm glad that they are there. I'd especially like to thank Breeze, Ja'Won, Gerald and Mark for joining me this Saturday. We got quite a few segments that will be coming out of this hangout over the next few weeks and I'm glad that they could be a part of it. I talk a little bit more about this in the video, and I hope to see everyone next Sunday as we'll be moving the hangouts from Saturday.

Editor's Note - February 6,2015

Just wanted to give a quick update on what's going on with M3. Just finished editing a video companion to Mark's article about boundaries within friendships. I think the video is one that I'm very proud of and could be relevant to almost anyone dealing with a similar friendship situation, and I'm glad he shared his story with us. I also finished editing the third episode of the M3 Bearcast and will be putting out a the next episode on Tuesday. I'm excited about the direction the podcast is going in, and I'm thinking that subsequent episodes will dig into the topics even more. I haven't had this much satisfaction from a creative endeavor since I started M3. Maybe I should have started a podcast a long time ago.

M3 Writer's Workshop: Month 1

Starting the M3 Writer's Workshop this month. I'm hoping we get full participation from our writing contributors. The idea is one that I've been brewing for a while. I wanted to get some feedback and motivation from other writer's who wanted to work their writing muscles. Each month I'll introduce a series of writing exercises designed to stimulate different aspects of the writing craft. It's basically designed to be modular so that each exercise has a beginner level, intermediate and advanced option. It's very similar to a workout video where the instructor does one for of the exercise and then others in the back demonstrate the easy and hard variations of the same movement. We'll also be reading a book to discuss at the end of the month.
