Goodnight moon goodbye sun.

My computer is driving me insane again, but I have some very good news. Dad will be giving me $2000 AUD to get a new one! I’ll be so relieved to have something that works properly and that has a screen in working order. I have some idea of the type I will be getting – One from Dell with nifty elements like a 360gb hard drive and 4gb of ram. I wouldn’t go for anything less now. I am thinking about getting a Digital Camera at the same time because I really miss being able to take photos and document the life around me. I took a lot of photos of my cat Witchypoo before she went missing and I feel scared in case another should go missing and I couldn’t take more photos of them. I guess I have to decide between getting a Camera that will be very useful and rewarding in it’s own way or having an extra $200 for websites and random other online needs.

I have been doing a lot of thinking of late and decided I am going to open a hobby site to do designs for other peoples websites. I enjoy playing with CSS, no I would say I love CSS and I feel confident when I am creating designs, so why not make them for others? They would all be valid XHTML and CSS and for a variety of different forms, like WordPress, standard web templates and maybe small fanlisting designs. The idea of this is for it to be fun and not overwhelming so I am going to take it slow and not swamp myself with it. It could take a few months or longer to get it together but I will keep everyone updated. I have also decided on a domain for it, that I own. But unfortunately if I tell you, I have to kill you.

I guess it would be a good idea to get a little bit of feedback. So if you are willing please answer me the following questions in a comment:

  1. How much would you pay for a general website or WordPress Template?
  2. How much would you pay for XHTML and CSS validation for each page of your website?
  3. Do you like designs that are; Creative/Imaginative, Clean/Professional, Basic/Simple or other?
  4. Would you pay extra for an image with your design or prefer to create your own?
  5. Any comments?

    That sounds like an awesome computer, although I’d so easily 360gb with all my files, I have loads of random photoshop psds and fonts etc cluttering up my room on DVDs that I’d be to lazy to put on DVD if I had that big a hard drive (I only have 100gb at the moment)!!

    Hey, I’m from depsaair!!!!

    Anyway,

    1. How much would you pay for a general website or WordPress Template?

    2 dollar. That’s how much I pay for my whorez. :D No, really.. I don’t know. I can’t give you a good answer because I suck at pricing things. Hopefully you’ll get a lot of responses from people who can help you. Might I suggest that you do some searching and see if there are general “going rates” for hobbyist designers, if you haven’t already?

    2. How much would you pay for XHTML and CSS validation for each page of your website?
    Again, I’m not sure. :(

    3. Do you like designs that are; Creative/Imaginative, Clean/Professional, Basic/Simple or other?
    It all depend. Sometimes I am in the mood for Creative, sometimes professional, some times basic. Lately, though, I’ve been more for the clean/professional/creative look.

    4. Would you pay extra for an image with your design or prefer to create your own?
    Yes, I would.

    5. Any comments?
    If I figure out the domain name you’re using will you be my slave? :D

    Wow, I was no help. Seriously, I hope people can help you out! — And good luck with the site, I think it’s a great idea for you. :)

    I am going to be serious now. yay for the new computer that will soon be arriving! Sounds like it’s going to be a schweet addition.

    If I were given $200 dollars and I didn’t have a camera, I would definitely go for a camera. I think there one of the greatest inventions; the memories they’ll capture for you are truly priceless. If I didn’t have pictures of my pets, family, friends (i.e. you!), places I’ve been, I would be upset.

    P.S.

    4. Would you pay extra for an image with your design or prefer to create your own?
    Yes, I would.

    I mean, yes, I would pay extra for an image.

    I like designs that are clean/simple, with a mature touch to them. I expect you could charge pretty high for templates if you could locate the correct audience. Look around other design sites, see what you think? :)

    And wow gee you’re lucky to get so much money! I wish someone would give me some cash, haha.

    Reply- It’s cool. I totally respect your views. :]

    Oh and I think your upcoming website sounds like a good idea. I personally wouldn’t be able to do it cause I’m sloppy at CSS, haha.

    1. How much would you pay for a general website or WordPress Template? $5-25 USD, I’m not sure, I guess it depends on quality.
    2. How much would you pay for XHTML and CSS validation for each page of your website? $5
    3. Do you like designs that are; Creative/Imaginative, Clean/Professional, Basic/Simple or other? I like clean/professional ones but the eye-catching creative ones are cool too.
    4. Would you pay extra for an image with your design or prefer to create your own? I would pay for a custom made one, probably.
    5. Any comments? Good luck :D
