Public Domain project - "Creative Hiatus" -- We're back!
« on: October 21, 2021, 06:52 PM »
Our public domain weekly project closes shop on October 29th, both because of lack of support and because the domain expires.

https://www.websiteplanet.com/webtools/check-domain/?domain=publicdomainweekly.com

I’m learning to let go of expectations, which translates to learning to make things just for the sake of it.

We will continue in another shape or form. There’s always GitHub and a plethora of freebie ways to share what our project can offer to assist the community.

Thanks for being there.

From a humbled,
Vic

I'm sorry to about the setback.   I think humbled is not a bad word for the experience that many of us have had, by how hard it is to get by on donations or non-traditional ways of trying to make a living.  Keep your spirits high.

Re: Public Domain project *morphing* back to unscheduled

Thank you very much for your replies; they are much appreciated at this very time.

... I think humbled is not a bad word for the experience ...

Indeed. It is an expansive experience to assist in terms of personal growth.

:Thmbsup: As 40 always says... onward!

Onward it is! Time to morph back to unscheduled (PubilcDomain-based), accept this as a secondary project (until there's enough support) and give it the whole 2020's up to 2029 to have an actual assessment of success in a smooth way.

Gladly, the "Proudly celebrating 15+ years online" on the header is a persistent reminder that helping is a long-term game, for doing things out of love and -above it all- to ENJOY the creative process.

From a more-experienced,
 :)

Okie! Just posted about our current hiatus & edited the thread to reflect the fact we'll be coming back...

https://publicdomain...us-we-ll-come-back!/

There are still valuable releases to make (i.e. upcoming N,A,N,Y, + several pending ones).

...The weekly project was just a battle; we're certainly not done!

There IS a space for our releases online & we certainly have something to offer toward making people's lives better.

Cheers & many thanks again!

Thank you very much guys for your kind words of appreciation  :-* It is a fuel for the soul!

Just registered PublicDomain.is to resume making releases this very month with a re-imagined operation for a steady run. Some rewards in the form of server space & online tools are due on the new site to act as an incentive for supporters to stick with us :)

I know our public domain operation only needs time & actively helping more folks to have it be equal and eventually surpass current local/freelancing jobs! A "full-time purpose" dream!

Cheers from a driven, happy & wise,

Not to be a wet blanket, but do remember that for your own sanity, the much happier path for almost everyone involved in making free/donationware software, is to have another regular job (or do freelance work), and not relay on donations to pay the bills.
