I didn't intend on starting a community with Storytella.io
It came out of a raw experience I had in writing out my life story: https://storytella.io/thestorytellastory (spontaneously spurred me to launch the community post experience).
Having been inspired by a friend's story: https://thekanyestory.com/
Both are 15 minute reads that may blow your mind. About pages will never be the same again.
My point? 99% of communities I have come across still don't have a raw founder story and lack a human face. @JackButcher is a great example of a community with a cult follwing around his personal growth story. I think it's a missed oppurtunity for attracting a cult like respect inside.
If anyone ever needs guidance here storytelling wise, holla.
