A Good Idea

I'm making a paypal account.
Why?
I'm setting up a donation link on my graphics blog.
I was never ever planning on making money from my layouts, but almost every single person I've made something for has wanted to pay me. I always decline, but at this point it just seems like a good idea to set up the account.
That way it's not a set price. What would be the point? I could overcharge and then piss people off.
It's nicer to let anyone that wants to compensate me do so with however much they want.
And anyone that doesn't want to doesn't have to.
The link will probably be up by February, but it's optional and always will be.
Unless I wind up with like... 100 requests a day. Which I highly doubt.
I'll also have to start slowing down when school starts, but that's in about 3 weeks so I'm fine.

I get this kind of euphoric feeling when I click on a blog and BAM something I made is right there. It happens a lot now, because I'm slowly spreading through the people who's blogs I read. Eventually you will all be mine. MUAHAHAHA.

Oh, and I figured out what I'm doing for my 100th post giveaway. Trust me, it's a good prize.
And there's no way you could be allergic to it.
Or decide not to use it.
And you won't gain an ounce from it.
It's something EVERYONE would like.

Right now I've got 3 orders sitting in my inbox waiting to be created.
And I'm sitting here in my underwear being lazy and not working on them. I guarantee they'll be finished by tonight, I'm just trying to relax because I'm tired.
I went for a bike ride because my saddle bags are coming back. My bad for constantly sitting on my ass.
Anyway, keep on sending clients my way. I feel important, woo!
And keep on keepin' on. I love you guys, you've made me what I am today: A developing successful blog and business.

Personally, I think that a set price is a good thing, because everyone is paying the same price.

The other bloggers I know who do this have a price for a header, another price for a button, another price for a full blog makeover, etc. It seems to work well for them.

Fun for you!

I'm talking about the Paypal account, but I'm also talking about sitting around in your underwear.

Good idea! Sitting in your underwear that is. And the paypal account too. And a giveaway is a great idea! Good for me!

Liz said...

I think that is a good thing. You are spending your time doing it so you should be compensated.

I wish I was sitting around in my underwear. Instead I just walked in the door after driving in a snow storm to get my son some ski's for his school ski trip tomorrow. Could they have picked a ski store close to my house--NOPE. I had to load all 3 kids in the car and we left at 4:00 and just got home at 5:45. It pretty much sucked!!

Oooo a giveaway very cool! I agree with Kristina on having a set price. You've done a good job with the layouts that I have seen.

I've seen some of your layouts, you definitely do good work, and it's a nice idea.
