That's interesting!

But I think that's easier to do with more technical creators who can manage their own website/blog/etc. My target community are artists, so I assume they don't know what a meta tag is. I think it's best if I could abstract most of the technical details from them and let them have a more visual experience.

The best solution for my community would be to let them explore webmonetization by seeing what it does. Unfortunately, coil doesn't have a free trial... It would be hard for people to blindly trust Coil with their card info and invest $5 to something they don't know.

Of course we could give them a blog post. But reading takes effort xD
Is there a good webmonetization simulation that doesn't need a coil subscription to try?

Oh, interesting, I hadn't thought about managing a website as technical for an artist, rather as a necessity in this day and age in the creative arts.

This is why we need @gfam to be active again, as it would have allowed artists to experiment with this via a Coil Creator account, without having to host their own website with. Having said that though, an artist can also use Cinnamon to experiment with a Coil Creator account in this way. Mind you, videos are alway a bigger time investment.

In case it is useful to your community, Artist Rescue has a series of training modules in Web Monetization for artists: artistrescue.org/training-modules/

You are most welcome. I am starting to compile Web Monetization Tutorials here: storytogo.ca/web-monetization-stan... Artist Rescue's modules are currently the most applicable tutorial there for your community. I am also building a Web Monetization Course which would be good for those that wish a deeper dive. Currently the first Unit is done. It can be found here: storytogo.ca/classroom/course/web-...
