This week in community building — Issue 119
By Rosie Sherry • Issue #25 • View online
⛈ Hello, today in Rosieland it is grey, windy and rainy!
I’m pulling together the Minimum Viable Community course which will launch next month.
To me, a Minimum Viable Community is the smallest action you can take to bring people together, with the view to learn and build community flywheels upon your actions.
I’d love to include real-life examples of MVCs. Do you have a MVC experiment worth sharing? Reply to this email if this is something you are able to share.
(I’ll give you free access to the course if we use your example.)
🌤 Psst, come hang on our Rosieland Discord or Twitter Community or join us every Friday for a casual community chat.

I don't think a lot of people understand how early @mattmecham was building online community software that was used by a lot of people. Probably because he started young, and he's a generally unassuming guy.

But I was there, so let me tell you a story. Let's go back...

How do you build a category-defining brand around your community?

The best way to get started in a new community:

My Sunday 🚶‍♂️+💭 walk-and-think prompt via @rosiesherry

"How can I care for and contribute to the communities I love?"

What an emotional rush as I thought of all these great communities...and the HUGE effort the leaders (+ many members) put into them.
