I'm back from vacation - actually that was the previous month - more than 2 weeks ago. I had my share of sun and love and sea food , and good emotions.
The site had almost no visits - different than spam bots, chinese, indian or ukrainian visitors who would type ... something. I had to "take it down" - and left it to die on it's own. But recently I decided to give it a last chance.
By "Last" I mean literally this. The hosting for this page has been paid until April next year. I have no intention to continue supporting it - if it doesn't work for me and if it doesn't entertain vast amount people. My next goal is reaching $300.
The cash from the reached goal will be used to pay the hosting company for another year.
The point here is the principle - and these should be achieved through patreon itself only - not from donations or commission jobs. I somehow don’t see reason to pay fees every each year for a site that doesn’t repay : $300 hosting , $350 a plugin /that includes 24 h support / - currently the second thing has been disabled
Some ideas about my future goals /those may change - depending on interest of the people.
My long term goal is to start posting all my stuff on www.mavisdraws.com - and patreon would be the thing that will support the page and me. So - there should not be anything on patreon, but all on the site - out and for free.
The amounts written are approximate and not exact - as well as the goals I set.
$800 - $1000 - will start posting twice or thrice a week
$2000- and above - will pull out all the stuff I have inside patreon - including previous years , but without the stuff that are patreon's policy... I actually did some stuff and I had to remove them after I've been observed recently.
I know - why would you pay for something that you’d get for free - the answer is : I’m not selling and you’re not buying. Giving cash is support to me as an artist - and that’s how you will help to get the page : www.mavisdraws.com running.
So guys - if you have questions, suggestions, cool ideas - regarding the rewards I offer on patreon or the things you wish to see from me -I'm all eyes and ears and I'll be happy to respond.
