So, my traffic lately to this site has increased exponentially and has become very popular. The load on my server has definitely increased and in terms of keeping the speed on the site up I have had to upgrade my server. This among other things including the increasing rate of people stealing my photos and using them for themselves to imitate me or what not PLUS the costs of running this site and the amount of work to keep up with it. I would like to pose a question to those that may be interested. I have considered doing something like this for awhile as I have a TON of photos and we take a lot of photos and what not. But, I wanted to gauge interest. If you all wouldn’t mind answer this question for me I would really appreciate it.
This will give those interested in seeing a lot of updated diaper photos of me and what not plus also just paying a super small fee each month of between $2-$3 (not much at all per person) – which from at least several people can help offset some of the costs of maintaining this site and time put in. It would help me out a great deal without much from anyone else. It would of course be anonymous and secure.
NOTE: This would only be for an exclusive updated often photo section and every other part of this site would be free as always.
Yes i know it cost allot to have a server. Way do you dont use a shared web host?
I honestly don’t know which to choose. I have no interest in pictures myself–I come here mainly for support and information, which you and others have provided in generous amounts. So if I had to vote, I’d vote “no”. But I realize there are others here who do like the photos, so I have no business deciding for them.
I think it’s a great idea! It will help bring in funds to help maintain the site and pay the various expenses, and making it so the rest of the site would still be free is a really great idea too^_^. The low asking price would make it easy for those interested to afford access, and those who wouldn’t be interested or unable to pay the cost at the time would still have access to and be able to the rest of the site. It’s a win win for everyone^_^. If you decide to carry out the idea, and if PayPal will be a payment option, let me know and I’ll sign up. 🙂 It really is a pretty good idea you have^_^.
Kevin – thanks for the comment. There has so far been a lot of positive feedback. I will be looking into how to get it setup if positive feedback continues. Just trying to gauge interest at the moment.
Kevin’s comment makes sense, so I voted in favor of the fee for pictures. Anything that helps keep this blog going, I’m for.
It would obviously be an optional thing to sign up – but I figured $2-$3 a month for most people is easily affordable even if you don’t care about the photos that much. It helps support this site and what not and you get access to regularly updated photos. I feel its a win-win for everyone. Cheap, helps support the site and me, and its good entertainment I suppose – its fun taking photos too!
I’d be all for paying for some exclusive access. The pictures we’ve all seen are great. I can only imagine what else you may have to offer. Another idea that might be worth exploring is expanding on the current trend of guest posters. Their blog entries have been a great addition to your already very nice site. Maybe there are people willing to contribute pictures or videos of their own.
Another option would be $10-$20 for 6-12 months of access. Personally I’d prefer paying once for a longer period over paying every month.
Just my $.02
BabyCorry – Good suggestion – I will look into both the options you offer to see if I can get it done. About the guest-posters as well as 6-12 months access also. Will definitely look into. Thanks for the suggestion.
I would tend to agree with BabyCory – a one-time fee of $25 – $35 per year with no automatic renewal (I really don’t like automated renewals) would be a great option. It would also perhaps help people on this site whose significant others get the credit card statement and their s/o doesn’t know about their diaper preference. I have a prescription for diapers and pads and I have finally come to like wearing them after 2.5 years but not everyone is in the same boat. It’s easier to explain a small one-time fee than a recurring very small amount which would make me suspicious instantly.
Not to sound like a perv, but I would pay for some diapered ass-shots and up-skirts :p

Just as long as it doesn’t get like other sites that want more money all the time for everything else. Adrian,

Looking forward towards growth if it is!
