I'm just getting back to the WF after a long hiatus. Joined the National Guard, made a move and pursued some different business ventures.
Right now, I want to do what I'm passionate about, and share it, which is taking fuzzy ideas and turning them into concrete processes (you know, the kinds that are always promised with products).
I guess I don't feel like it's a business if it can't be outsourced, and it can't be outsourced if you can't explain it. Being a visual learner, I explain with process maps and mind maps.
Now here's my dilemma. I want to share all of this, because frankly I won't use a lot of them, or will do one project and ditch it. My main focus is seeing if I can make it work, and then I get bored. But, something profound I read in one of Mr. Paul Myer's newsletters was "People do not value free, anywhere close to as much as paid" (I had to paraphrase because I don't know if I still have the newsletter)
I don't want to throw stuff out there that people aren't going to use. All I'd be doing then, would be adding to the "analysis paralysis" I find it so easy to put myself in, and I don't want to do that to others.
So, should I charge a small fee, like 50 cents per month, to subscribe to the mailing list, and just donate all the proceeds to charity or hosting costs or something, or just make it good ole' fashioned free?
Thanks in advance for the feedback!
