So if you have anything you want to see promoted, this is a really good chance to get it out there. Just let me know!
A surprise from last night: Idol received it’s very first SUBSCRIBER! (reoccurring subscription payment on paypal). I mention this because I know folks in the past have asked me about doing something like that, and I had no idea that it was even possible. But apparently it is! You can do through paypal.com
I was going to set up a button, but it made you create a set amount and that’s something that I’d far rather people did on their own. (If they even want to do something like that at all. I wasn’t going to mention it, but I’ve been getting emails from a few different people lately urging me to do more to “let people know about the Tip Jar”. I didn’t think that I was being subtle! If anything, I thought that I was being way too annoying with it!!!! It’s safe to say that it’s been largely ignored, so hopefully the people not interested are just skimming on by)
I’m not sure what “subscriber” is going to mean. But maybe if I end up with a few of them, I’ll have to come up with some incentives. Will this be the new “List of Shame”? “Gold Stars”? I’ve only had a couple hours to think about it (I didn’t dream about it, so nothing was going on during that time) but “exclusive Idol content”? Not even sure people would like topics with deadlines emailed to them during the off season! I think the fun of it is doing it all in the public eye with the interaction of your peers. So really, I’m not sure.
I doubt that it will be a decision that I even need to make. Maybe I will only have 1 person interested. Then again, there have been people who have asked in the past, so I’ll put it out there – if there were an Idol subscription, what would you like to see?
(I’m floating an idea and looking for feedback. Not saying this *is* happening. There are a lot of people who want to see Idol continue past Season 9, and have been trying to come up with ways of making that happen. This is one of the ideas.)
In the meantime, here is a link to the standard Tip Jar:
What have you been up to over the last couple of days?
