So hey, I’ve been thinking about it recently (about a few months after I started translating, which is a little over two years) but I’ve been wanting to make money off of this site. However, I don’t really know how to go about doing it. Does anyone have any ideas?
I have thought about sponsored chapters but I always put off that idea when I don’t regularly update (which is always). So I thought I would pitch the idea to you guys. It might also motivate me to make posts regularly. For that, my idea was one regular chapter a week and then whatever sponsored chapter. But sadly, I can’t translate all that fast.
Also, I am planning on picking up Oukoku e Tsuzuku Michi, otherwise known as Road to Kingdom which was originally being translated by larvyde. With how long it is, I was thinking of at least one regular chapter a month, then maybe a high price for another one. Right now, I have finished translating the second part of chapter 22 and I am hoping for a response to a comment I put on larvyde’s site that says that I can. If I don’t hear a response by Christmas, I’m just going to go ahead and post it. It won’t be as good quality as when larvyde did it since I don’t really edit my work or anything (I work on my own as a translator so no editor) but I personally really want to continue on with the story.
So those are my ideas. I don’t really know about how I feel about ads or how you guys feel about them. And I don’t really know what Patreon or whatever is all about. So, if you guys don’t mind, please tell me any ideas that might work for my greedy self.
