Okay, all, time to ask one very out in left field question: how many of you have publicly shown how the sausage is made? The past couple of weeks, I've actually done some art broadcasts on Twitch about fontmaking and worked on a couple of them (made a dingbat font and updated one of my older ones) while people asked questions. While I didn't exactly get stellar numbers in views, I've had a couple of graphic designers ask me about how to get into fontmaking and I've noted that my sales have actually gone up since I started this.
I know that many people think fontmaking is an arcane, taboo secret akin to black magic or something (y'know, like all software development), but I wonder if this is the start of something that might just get more attention. I could talk about all the pitfalls that comes with font development (like constantly slapping free sites with DMCAs) and things like that. Or I could ask what people want and what they're looking for in fonts (on a site that is graphic heavy, a lot of people pay attention to fonts, whether consciously or not). And it made me curious to wonder just how many others out there have had these thoughts or even did it.
