Poll #1033906 PayPal Poll

In response to my frustrations about having a lot of webcast time taken up by a desk job, many people have indicated that I should add a paypal "donation" button to my profile to raise $$ for equipment and other fun stuff...and eventually so I can webcast for reals all day. I feel like it's a little "90's camgirl" but my dream is to not have to shut down the audio for 45 hours of daylight time. If I did do it, all donations would go toward more cool webcasting equipment and "props" (tee hee!) and then life expenses if it got there (apt rental, etc) What do you think? Thanks.

Sure, go for it! We'd love to cut out office-cam for good!
Sounds ok, but maybe just for equipment/ props purposes.
Nah, just open a PO box and figure something else out.
Sounds like a really bad idea.

Can't work out how to do this poll but you could have a paypal and a po box as options for those wishing to support your endeavours...makes sense to me...

I don't know if enough people will donate to be able to quit work. But you could start with donations for equipment and events. so my vote is

your idea is a perfect move for the 21 century. i can remember when videophones were thought to be just around the corner as the new tech. in the 20 century, but now you can chat and stream yourself to any place on the planet LIVE with little to no delay. i also think with very tech we on earth could link with the ISS or the space shuttle when it is in orbit.

ps i tried to vote but there is a broken link.

Doing this full time is going to be a lot of work. And I don't think you can rely on "Donations" to fund such an endeavor. You can't rely on justin.tv or similar service and you will need to pay for your bandwidth as well as your personal expenses.
Based on a guess of the number of people that currently watch you probably need to charge greater than $25 a month to make this viable. At that price you have to expend a lot of energy (which you seem to have) to make it interesting for folks.
That may be more interesting to you than an office job. so if you think you are up to it then by all means go for it.
But starting out with donations to pay for equipment and vacation money (don't forget taking care of yourself) sounds like a good idea. :)
