Building Membership, Organization & This Blog

Ted's Marijuana

Ted's MarijuanaI will be honest, I don’t remember making this section several days ago. It could have been yesterday, but Big Pharm keeps me guessing what I do from hour to hour. You probably read in the mission that I don’t smoke. I can’t smoke…yet. It’s coming soon though. I guess I was in the mood to have my own rant section. Maybe it would be fair to have a section for everyone, but for now…this one is mine. I am long winded and my mind races all over. That’s why I made this section. Treat it like my public diary if you will.

Membership

I have been simply amazed at the support the marijuana community has given me. I don’t even give you my real name and you still join. That’s some serious trust! Don’t worry though, I will treat your info as I would my own. To some that might seem frivolous but in my world it’s fucking amazing. I didn’t just sign you up and that is it. For the overwhelming majority that told me then we’re “in” has also contributed content to the forum. These aren’t fake accounts. I didn’t even have to pay for people to join. No free weed or anything.

Someone asked in a Twitter DM last night how such a new forum has gained membership so quickly. The answer is that I am fairly good at branding and social marketing. I am no expert. All of that doesn’t matter though. This is how I would say 80% got here…or what I do each day…
Search hashtags on Twitter.

  1. Find people who talk about marijuana and follow them.
  2. Hope they follow back.
  3. Ask them to join the community and offer to make the account for them.
  4. They say yes then I do so and send them the login info. They say no, I thank them for their response.
  5. They come to forum and do things.
  6. I smile and I even forget about the pain from fibro because of the support.

The membership part was simple. I just simply asked and you said yes. Of course this only goes so far and eventually I will run out of people who say yes. I mean, I hope not, but there has to be an end.

One thing I was going to ask is if you know someone who would dig this community, would you bring them over? I don’t have a referral system or anything. I could use a hand and if you wouldn’t mind. If not, totally cool as well. This place has been hopping and I don’t want to see if stop. Everyone here has been a huge boost for me. Some days it’s the only thing that makes me feel good. (fibro fucking sucks)

Organization

Someone else DM’d me to ask if we were some organization or something along those lines. This isn’t. To be honest, it was just a side gig that I created in honor of my father. Actually his death anniversary is only 2 weeks away. I will ask my brother to get twice as high for me on that day.

If I do go that route I have to wait about a year or so anyways. Just because we are off to a great start doesn’t mean I am going that far. I want to see if this whole thing is sustainable or just a fluke because I asked people to join.

Don’t get me wrong, I think it would be completely fucking awesome to lead this thing into a full blown organization. I will have an awesome time lobbying, pushing, and do anything I can to push legalization around the world. For now though, I am just going to chill and build a base first.

Done, Peace

Let’s keep this ramble to those topics. I am only going to write these when I am high on Big Pharm. Otherwise they wouldn’t be rambles. Well, my answer is that I wasn’t in the mindset of creating some non-profit or official organization from this. I didn’t even think people would sign up.
