Sharo’s Creative Funding Chronicles Pt. 5

Not a huge update! Mostly that after a couple weeks of total inactivity I decided to try to play Lucktastic one more time, because I was super close to getting enough points for a $15 Restaurants.com gift card. And I got the points, I clicked redeem- it asked me to log in again because apparently I had to log back in to prove I was a registered user… so, yeah, I deleted it.

Actually, because my friend is going to Las Vegas, NV for Electric Daisy Carnival (?) this week, and promised me to bring back ANY SOUVENIR I WANT if I prove that I downloaded Tinder and spoke to at least five different people, I used the newly freed-up space to download Tinder. Apparently it saved all my settings from that time two years ago when I reconnected with someone I dated in high school and was too awkward to tell him that I couldn’t meet him because I was in recovery for major surgery so my solution was to delete the app. So all my photos are 2+ years out of date!

It’s not gonna be enjoyable lmao but I’m gonna GET that cool Las Vegas keychain and postcard that I want assuming she doesn’t forget, which is forgivable as I expect her to be. . . . . busy.

KO Trivia is still my favorite right now. I’m still learning how to maximize my trivia knowledge but 2-5 dollars a week isn’t a terrible reward for doing something I’d want to do anyway.

Ah well! Here’s hoping May contains a few good surprises for me!

Small site update!

I have decided, after some debate, to go ahead and temporarily re-open my Redbubble account- this, you’ll notice, has some different artworks on it, and I may decide at a future date to close it back down, but for now I’m hoping to use it to gauge interest in creating prints and printed works in the future.

I have also updated my About Me page to include links to my Patreon and my Redbubble accounts! Please let me know what you think!

WELL… HM.

Total Trivia is not really working out as anything other than a warmup for closely related (owned by the same company if I am reading this correctly) KO Trivia, which is an elimination-style trivia tournament app that mostly uses the same questions and answers as Total Trivia. I’ve been mildly successful- I’ve won small amounts of money, maybe 5-6 dollars total when it’s all added up over the past two weeks- and it’s something I see myself continuing to utilize. Still not a perfect fundraiser, but it seems like if you’re 100% lucky with the answers you could theoretically win something like 26 dollars a day not counting prizes that are smaller than a dollar or ‘intangible’ like extra lives. In April they had regular larger tournaments, which might not be available during May because I haven’t noticed any, but you could win the larger tournaments for 100$ a day, 1000$ a week, or 10000$ per month. If that’s a regular feature, that’d be pretty great. Also, you watch an advertisement to gain access to the trivia tournament, so literally all play is free, and you can watch an ad for a second life- meaning you’d only need to use any of your stored lives if it’s something you really want a third life for.

I’d recommend it to anybody who wants to make a little chunk of money on lunch breaks or after work, since even if you lose, you’re building the skills for earning more lives for the stockpile later.

Other tidbits: opened up a Fiverr account, not feelin’ extraordinarily hopeful since the rates I charge on it are the same as the rates I charged for Everybody Loves Chlamydia, but we’ll see. I’m thinking of opening up an Etsy store but my crafting attempts keep getting thwarted- I’m looking at specifically painting/decoupaging little wooden boxes for this, maybe some other types of things. Again, we’ll see!
