Thanks for this post, having launched my first KS two weeks ago I have experienced exactly the same as you (minus the parley aha)

I've been surprised and saddened by who has and hasn't backed or shared the link. I'm struggling to cut through the noise of the internet with my project P A C E. I'm raising the money to print books to help the world slow down and read a real, printed book. I'm not trying to make a profit, just enough to print quality books and help the world slow a little.

It's so much harder than I thought running a Kickstarter on my own so if you have any good advice or are able to help support it please get in touch!

You can see it here: ... r-a-moment or email me at

Thanks and good luck with your campaigns too!

It is definitely surprising (in both good and bad ways) who you find supports you on Kickstarter. Some people you expect may not support your project but others you think wouldn't even consider it end up making large donations because they are inspired! I found many unlikely supporters through simply posting about it on Facebook.

When it comes to success and following your dreams - People want to see you do good but not better than them. I have wondered the same. Is it that hard to donate a $1, especially when you consistently "like" my photos on social media. It is a very interesting dynamic!

Keep up the good work!
