Dearest Solomon,

Happy 6th birthday, son. We made it through what can only be described as one of the most challenging years in the short history we’ve occupied. But not that you would have noticed — you took it all in stride.

Last year, I wrote to you about the 5 senses and how I could see them all in your life. This year, let me see if I can’t tell you about the 6th sense. Aside from being a pretty good movie, the 6th sense is not really a sense at all but a recognition of…

A smaller update this week, but some extra good stuff coming next week!

Light/Dark Mode

We know that our website showed off a cool dark theme and we know that people were excited to have it. We’ve enabled automatic light and dark modes for your Space based on user preferences.

We want to allow our community to be as involved as possible in the development of Zealous — you have all the best ideas, after all.

We plan to do releases once a week on Zealous and will share them with you. The best resource for support and help is our Zealous Community — join our space to get regular Zealous Updates (Zupdates).

Zealous lets you create a space for your followers and fans to connect with you in realtime. Going live creates more intimacy, takes less time, and is incredibly desired and valuable to your audience.

Choose Your Space

A Space is a collection of pages and rooms that belong to you and your community. You can have as many spaces as you like, but we recommend starting small and using them cautiously.

Space Names

Space names are used in your URL and have a couple of rules to keep in mind:

  1. Must be 5 characters or more
  2. Can contain punctuation like the hyphen (-) and (underscore)

Space URLs

Zealous provides you with a Live Home Page for your audience. You can use this page to provide additional notes, capture feedback, share links, and much more.

Pages Types

Zealous has 2 kinds of pages you can configure:

  1. Space Home Page
  2. Room Home Page

Space Home Page

Every Space starts with a Space Home Page. When you first start a new space, this page will be blank. The Space Home Page comes configured with the Subscription Block by default.

Room Home Page

Every time you schedule or create a Room on Zealous, a new page is created for that Room. …

Aug 22, 2020 — Hours after my second show

Dearest Solomon,

Today is my 46th birthday. I know I haven’t written much lately, but we’ve been through extraordinary times and those moments require more reflection not less. This last year was a new challenge not just for me, but for the entire world.

2020, how can I explain it? In short, the whole world got turned upside down and inside out while grilling on an open wildfire. Basically, it sucked in so many ways. But, as I have hopefully instilled in you, not everything is as bad as it seems.

Dearest Solomon,

Today is our wedding anniversary — the tenth, to be precise. I wanted to tell you about the day I met your mom. Stick with me, it’s gonna take a minute…

It was 2008. I was traveling between San Francisco, New York, and New Delhi constantly at that time and had a merry band of friends and misfits in NYC I still fortunately call friends today.
