Ko-Fi

I had given Ko-Fi a try and opened an account there -Ko-Fi is a crowdfunding site, a bit like Patreon but people can make one-off contributions rather than subscriptions which seemed to me better suited to what I do. The metaphor they use is that of buying the artist a virtual cup of coffee, contributing a couple of quid at a time. Seemed like a good idea. It didn't work. In the beginning I had three people contributing and then nothing ever happened again even though I did try to spread the word.

I'd also joined Bark.com, a site that claims to unite people wanting a service and people providing it, at the suggestion of a pianist friend who had found that useful in getting piano pupils. After spending something like a hundred and fifty quid in the 'credits' that you have to buy before hand, I haven't got one single pupil from that source (although there is one who _might_ start lessons in the near future, so there is that too). So Bark didn't bite.

Still looking for alternatives... I'm on Dreamwidth at http://flaviomatani.dreamwidth.org/ -do follow me there if you can.
