Another fantastic site I came across the other day is Kickstarter. This is a project based website where participants pitch their ideas and readers donate money to get those ideas off the ground. The project managers lay out the costs with their pitch and a deadline - the readers, if interested, can donate anything from $5 and up. If the money is secured before the deadline - Win! If not, the project is done (and from what I can see, open to other's possibly taking it on - haven't found that out specifically, I was too caught up in reading all the project ideas). There's various catagories, including fiction - yes, fiction writers can pitch their work and get donations to pay for the self-publishing costs.
If you're interested, here's the link: http://www.kickstarter.com/ Once there, click on "Discover" up at the top to get you to the next page - then scroll down for the various catagories (Dance, Publishing, Art, Photography, Food, Music - and more). Really Cool!
And, finally, some lame Easter Jokes:
How did the Easter Rabbit dry himself? With a hare dryer!Have a wonderful Easter weekend, People of Blogland! Check back tomorrow for Weekend Words if you're not out hopping around, up to your ears in dying eggs or trying to figure out a way to eat the whole chocolate bunny in one sitting!
How can you tell where the Easter Bunny has been? Eggs (x) marks the spot!
What did one colored egg say to the other? Heard any good yolks lately!
