After almost 4 years of making my music and posting it on this site, averaging about 4,000 views per song and a rating of about 4.40 (for all 63 of my submissions) ....
I have finally reached 20 dollars in profit from ads on my page and songs page, YES. (sarcasm)
Even though money wasn't the reason I'm choosing to post my songs on newgrounds, it makes you wonder what the point of it all is.
what makes it seem even more pointless is that newgrounds is now selling us out and giving the option for viewers to pay 25 dollars to newgrounds to not have ads when they visit newgrounds.. think about it.
although newgrounds might be gaining quantity(people who visit the site) they are losing the quality of the people who make the site. just remember the motto, "everything by everyone." Hopefully newgrounds can figure out a better way to keep the quality, and motivate at least the audio portal to want to continue.
(luckily I have all my cool fans for that)
this is not meant to attack newgrounds.. I almost didnt even post this. i just dont like the way this site is progressing. I want it to feel like as this site grows that there's more benifits for the artists, not less.
