It is alive!!!
I am unemployed again. Regular readers know what this means: I am back working on the site! For the moment this means that I am working on making the site pretty. For example I have added cover images to the articles index. And I have a couple of other cleanups to do here and there. An annoying cookies warning popup for example (thanks EU).
I hope to be writing new content soon, a surprise article... Please don't let that stop you from submitting your own content. Designers: if despite current economic grey clouds you are still drawing plans for amateur builders this is the place to make them known. Kit makers we need details about your kits too! Despite my long spell of abandon the site still draws over 3,000 readers a month who are reading more than 3 pages per session. This is not the 10,000 readers we had once upon a time but it is still three thousand builders or potential builders. Your call...
FAQ: No this site does not sell plans. Some designers have affiliate programs which means that the site gets a percentage on plans sold if you click on the "buy plans" links or advertising banners.
No this site is not a business. Please stop SEO people, I am sure I can handle site promotion on my own...
