I’m still running a campaign to get a new circle punch. I just counted up everything, and if I don’t have a circle punch by 30 October 2012, I won’t be able to make any updates of “New” designs on my Etsy shop until who-knows-when. The current “campaign” for this is going to be 50 days long, so that I can be guaranteed to be paid in time to order the circle punch before I run out of designs. In addition to a $10 grab bag of badges, I’m offering a divination via Skype for $15; your choice, tasseomancy (a $10 discount) or hydroscrying (a $35 discount).
But Ruadhán, why are you posting this here, and not your more-secular blog?
Because I’ve got a few designs with Hellenic deities I’ve made singles of for myself and / or friends. I’ve also got a few Hindu designs I made for a friend once. I’d also like to make other Hellenic (or other deity) badges, but see, that’s the thing: If I don’t get a circle punch, I can’t make these. If I can’t make these, you can’t get them. If you can’t get them, you will be TEH SADZ! You’re really only helping yourself by giving me a dollar, and making your friends give me another dollar. And I’m only asking you for a dollar because I want YOU to be happy!!!
You really cannot argue such sound logic.
So why are you using this Indie GoGo site? Why can’t we just paypal you large wads of cash?
If selling my top-quality crap on Etsy has taught me nothing else, it’s taught me that a lot of people either don’t have or don’t want to use PayPal for whatever reason. You can still use PayPal on IndiegoGo. Also, if you want to know why IGG, in specific, and not Kickstarter (which seems a little more popular among the people I watch on-line), go read this —scroll down and start with the first post. Chances are, you probably know about this already, but if you don’t, now you do.
