Kickstarter has taken the world of venture funding and turned it upside down. Kickstarter is a website where inventors and artists take an idea for something they could make, and create a page showing what they want to invent. Then, those who would buy the product if it were available, buy the product and as soon as the inventor has the item finished, mails it to the person who bought it. Many inventors, artists, and entrepreneurs have sold millions of dollars of products before even making the first production run of a prototype.
My goal with this site is really only to write about 25-30 pages with information as I learn about boats and do customizations to my boat. I’m also adding a forum. Forums seem to be very popular with boat owners so I’m anxious to have others generate content for me. I don’t have huge plans for this site, but I’m sure it will bring in a few thousand a month if I don’t fizzle out. This is going to be my fun project for the next little while.
