I'm working on a new website

Jan 21, 2009 10:28 PM
First off, I want to thank those who donated to me. I definitely have enough for at least a year's worth of hosting. Just so you know, sometime before the end of this month, this site will go down for a short period of time. Don't panic, I'm just switching hosts.

I also have a new web project that I am working on. It has to do with art commissions. I'm taking this quite seriously as it will be the first major website I'll launch since sleepycomics. My new website will basically try to streamline the process of art commissions. Artists can post a profile and buyers and send artists commission ideas. This will allow artists to price competetively and for buyers to find the artist of best value. It will also let you know which artists are available and which ones are closed. There are more features than that, but I just wanted to give you a taste of what is to come.
The ultimate goal of my new website, is for artists to make more money and for buyers to get art done.

Interesting. But maintaining and hosting the website will cost money. How will you receive your income? Do you get a percentage of every commission or something or will you dependent of donations?

I won't get a percentage of each commission. Income will depend on how popular the website is. If the site becomes very popular, I could sell advertising. Ad revenue would be enough for hosting. The more people visit, the more ad revenue I could earn.
