Black and Red
The poll I put on the blog is almost over and with 123 votes 89% are for yes, 10% maybe. That's quite strong favourable results.
After discussing technology challenges with my web maestro today we have come up with a plan. It will need a bit more work on my part but will mean a whole lot less work on his part.
I still have to deal with photographing the samples but think I've got a workable plan for that, too. I just need to set the studio up with a photography area. Since that means dedicating my work table for that until I'm done, and I need to sew the prototypes first, I'm waiting until those are ready before I jump into that part of the job.
After a lot of thought and reading through the comments received I have also decided to 'publish' Magic on a cd. That way if people have computer crashes they will not lose the content but can simply re-load from their cd. Given that the files will be on a cd I see no reason to involve a 3rd party so rather than sell digital Magic via some other website, I will do that myself. Since I would have to do all the marketing myself anyway, I could not see the wisdom in paying a 3rd party to host the files.
And my web maestro dangled an intiguing idea before me today - more on that once he investigates a bit further to see if it's feasible. But as usual, he's right on the cutting edge of the technology. And that's all the hint I will give about that right now!
