I would like to wish you all an happy and healthy new year. May 2017 be the year of new discoveries, and give you all the will to succeed whatever you will be trying.

Spending 2016 with you has been an awesome experience, and I hope 2017 will be even better.

For this year I hope than more projects will pop up, involving more people in them.

Happy new nixy year everyone !

So, any new years resolutions?

I want to write more (and better) code, and finish some projects I still have lying around. And I want to read a lot more, that has stalled a little bit this year.

How about you guys?

I'll defenitely going to try and read more this year, also. Perhaps I'll be ready for the last book in A Song of Ice and Fire this year.
And if my classes allow it, I'll see to spend some time on my current project, especially since I might need it during my next five years in uni.

I'm feeling optimistic for 2017.

Let's also remember that there are many projects on the forums, or anywhere else, that people left unfinished.

New Year's Resolutions?


I'd like to get a portfolio together and start doing some programming and web design work, and earn some money for it, and maybe even get out of my current job, which is all paperwork and zero IT.

My resolutions would be to write a story of some sort. Maybe not a comic since I'm not up for that kind of commitment. Perhaps get it self-published and sold somewhere on-line. What about a small sticker line? Slap a cat getting jammed into a pipe on your laptop. The point is to break out my creativity and make some madd buxx* on it.

If you write, self-host and place ads on your site with your writing. Don't use google Ads or anything like that. Place direct ads that are relavent to your writing. For example, writing sci-fi dystopian literature? Advertise a sci-fi dystopian movie or novel. A lot of small authors and indie filmmakers will work with you on advertising their material on your site. Once you get a following, Make merch related to your material and sell/advertise it. The ideal zero is when you no longer need to advertise anything other than yourself on your own site, and can sell enough merch to pay yourself per hour for your writing and for site upkeep.


Oh, and speaking of merch: Go ahead and research manufacturing of goodies and drop-shipping now. Definitely look into Topatoco.


Edit: Oh, and look into doing exclusive things for followers once you have a significant following. For example, a webcomic I read has a thing where you pay a one-time fee of 20, 50, or 100 dollars, and depending on how much you paid, you either get to read a few exclusive comics a year and get signed merch, get access to all the comics a day early plus the previous, or get to see the author draw live, plus the previous.

Basically, a perks club.

I'm also going to look into "passive" or "half-passive" income this year.
For now I've set a Patreon page ( https://www.patreon.com/venam ).
There aren't many options I can use to "cash-out" money.

I'm hoping I can at least cover up my servers fees.
