I have revised the Crowdfunding section on Economics. Now the Economics page has thumbnail descriptions with links to subpages. The original sections all have their own page now: 1000 True Fans, The Long Tail Theory, Money Handling, and Websites for Crowdfunding Projects. All of those have expanded at least a little bit. The last one has grown greatly, with many new crowdfunding platforms added and much more detail in the descriptions of those websites that provided good information about their services. So if you're into crowdfunding as a creator or patron, check it out.
I have updated the Serial Poetry page with material from the May 1, 2012 Poetry Fishbowl. There are two new poems listed in Path of the Paladins and two new poems in Sort Of Heroes. The linkback perk poem for Sort Of Heroes has been linked. There is also a new series listed, The Asgard Eddas, with two poems listed; one is from 2008 and one is new this month.
Poetry from the April 3, 2012 Poetry Fishbowl (and spillover) has been added to the Serial Poetry page. There are two new poems in The Steamsmith, one of which has already been sponsored. There are two new series -- Lacquerware and Kung Fu Robots -- each with several poems, ALL of which are already sponsored or in crowdfunding now. Go have fun.
The Serial Poetry page has been updated with listings of eight new Path of the Paladins poems from the March 20, 2012 Poetry Fishbowl. Those already published are linked accordingly.
There are two new serial poems, "Fiorenza and the Forest Wild" and "A Keen Eye for Alchemy," listed on the Serial Poetry page.
There are two new poems linked on the Serial Poetry page, as a perk for the January 3, 2012 Poetry Fishbowl. "Chamomile and Honeycrack" belongs to Path of the Paladins, and "alien aquarium" belongs to Monster House.
The general fund has sponsored two more poems that are now linked on the Serial Poetry page: "Bittersweet Preserves" (Fiorenza the Wisewoman) and "Princess in the Shadows" (The Ocracies).
I have linked several new poems on the Serial Poetry page including "The Girl He Brought Home," "Stillpoint of the Spinning Wheel," "Zee" (Monster House), "Paper and Tiger" (The Origami Mage), and "All the Things" (Practical Magics). Some others are listed but haven't been sponsored yet.
