State of the Cosmos: January 3, 2022

Letter From The Editor

2021 has come and gone, and as I reflect on it I have mixed feelings on both positive and negative changes I faced over the course of the past year. But I will choose not to focus on the negatives of 2021, and instead focus on the positives, some of which being this website and the wonderful group of people I’ve found to surround myself here at The Cosmic Circus.

After having lost my beloved mother in late 2020, for a long time I was very depressed and grieving, and questioning what my path and purpose should be. I still grieve her of course, but my decision to start this website last June, and our growth and development here, is something I believe she would have been proud of, and that makes me smile. 

In addition, I have been incredibly lucky to just happen to gather, purely by my own dumb luck I suppose, some of the most supportive, funny, kind, thoughtful people I have ever met online or in “real life.” This website and the people here have been the gift that keeps on giving to me. They help lift up not only me here, but each other, and it is a pleasure to have them in my life. So thank you to Alex, Anthony, Ayla, Brian, Drew, Julia, Tucker, Uday, and Vin for the support and companionship these past five months. Both for the work you put into writing articles and for the support and encouragement of myself and each other. You are not simply a workgroup or team here, you are like family. And again I believe my mom would be happy and proud to see the group I have “assembled” here.

The “State of the Cosmos” for The Cosmic Circus continues to be very good with our second-best traffic month of 2021 coming in December, despite being the holiday season, and our Patreon and Twitter following continues to grow. We have also added a couple of new writers to the Cosmic Circus family: Jake and Emily. I look forward to seeing what they have to contribute to the site, and I hope you do too.

Here’s hoping for more growth and prosperity for this site and for you all reading this and supporting us in 2022. With my new “fam” backing me, I’m optimistic that the coming year could be a mainly positive one for this website, and one where when I think of my mom, I’d picture her being full of pride and smiling.
