The blogger that sold out
Some additions to the blog. The above picture will take you to close up shots of the Skaven Tower. This is part of the new Showcase area, which you can get to using the top navigation buttons. Just click on the word that says Showcase. It isn’t really that hard. Snotlings could do it.
I’ll progressively add close up pictures of the rest of my armies, as well as links to the relevant posts on how they were painted or converted. Hopefully this will be helpful to beginners and veterans alike, who can glean some wisdom from my various disasters and poor ideas.
Also of note is the conspicuous and evil Donate button in the right hand sidebar. I have mixed feelings about this whole donate thing, but I am willing to pop it up there and give it a shot. The aim isn’t to demand money, or charge for content, or anything like that. If anything, it is a promise that I will be trying to add more to this blog, things like the Showcase, that allow for the readership to easily get something informative and relevant to them.
The hope is that really good quality content will cause you, the readers, to say “Ok, I found that useful. Heres a dollar.” or “That is a great idea, have twenty dollars”. I’m not fussed about the amounts. It’s a bit of quid pro quo. Extra cash that can go back into creating more relevant content. A self-perpetuating cycle. Hopefully.
So yeah, if that is selling out, I sold out. But I thought about this for a while, and I am convinced it is an appropriate thing to do. I spend a lot of time on this blog, not just putting together my armies, but reviewing webzines and generally critiquing the Warhammer community at large. So think of me as some kind of Warhammer internet busker, accepting your loose change in my upturned paint palette.
Please be nice.
I should also mention, the Donate buttons is linked to my Paypal account. So obviously, you need to have a Paypal account to contribute. That seems like important information I left out.
