The Rhubarb Society originally started as a moodboard, affectionately named after my dog and as a nod to the community I had built on my other social media platforms, filled with interesting, insightful people who shared my same passions for art, film, culture and everything in between. I really wanted to find a way to nurture this community outside of TikTok comments, DMs, and Instagram Q&As. Over the years, I have truly enjoyed the art of research (because it really is an art) and curation, in everything from the products to places to playlists; and whilst I’d always enjoyed sharing my finds, the missing piece for me was finding a like-minded community who could share their own back. In my mind, any good club or society should not only be a place filled with people who have shared passions and interests, but also one of fun.
For me, The Rhubarb Society is a safe space for those looking to live an inspired life and live every day with joy and intention.
Why should I pay for a subscription?
With my social media, I like to think part of the reason I’ve built such a great community is because it is rooted in foundations of trust. I don’t work with brands I don’t believe in, I don’t recommend products I never (or would never) use, and I will always give my firm and truthful opinions. I don’t want The Rhubarb Society to be any different. I don’t want to push adverts or paid ads with this newsletter because I want you to continue trust everything that is being recommended. At best, the closest to this I would want to offer are exclusive referral codes to brands that I love so that we can all benefit from a discount. Another important factor goes back to my mission for The Rhubarb Society to be a safe space for its members. By having the option for a subscription that only allows paying members to comment, contribute and chat, I can ensure that our society is only made up of like-minded people. Of course, there are dedicated and trusted members who may not have the means to pay for the subscription, and if this is the case, please do drop an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and our resident membership manager will sort you out.
