Ever since I started YouTube and my Blog I've held out the tip jar. I never truly expected much to come from it, but my feeling was always why not. It could help me fund some of the things I do with YouTube (get those needles I want to review, buy some yarn for the on camera swatches, upgrade my webcam, buy hard drives....).
Because of my experience on YouTube, I knew at some point "The Indy List" would require a need that that love and effort cannot fulfill.
And, sure enough, it has. When I started this blog on Weebly it was because I hated Blogger. In High School I was the Editor in Chief for the school newspaper. Anyone who reads my tweets knows I didn't earn that position with proofreading. Nope. My skill was writing and layout. (I want to put text and photos where I want them, damn it!) Weebly gave me that ability with their free website builder. No coding skills needed. Perfect.
"The Indy List" is reaching the end of what I can get from Weebly for free, and believe me I will drain every free service I can. I am adding a Google Ad Sense to the site to help cover costs, but that takes time to set up and I do not know how long it will be until it is generating income.
Before AdSense is set up, I will have to commit to upgrading my site to a paid plan. Switching to a paid plan will not only get a unique domain name, it will help me add better searchability to the "The Indy List."
Thanks to your generosity, I am 29% of the way to getting the paid plan fully funded for the year. I am so incredibly grateful to all of you. And I am working to live up to the faith you have placed in me to get this done, and get this done well.
