For a long time now, I've had an idea for a virtual indie convention - an attractive site to easily search through various media and genres of indie creators and buy from them directly, to lessen the dependence on big corporations for entertainment and publicity.
Now, with the pandemic, small businesses are shutting their doors - perhaps forever. Conventions and other places for indie creators to gain visibility are shut down. These smaller creatives have run close to the budget for years now and they don't have much to fall back on.
I can't sit on this idea any longer. It is quite literally now or never. I'm going for it.

More is coming.
Take care, everybody.
May God bless you and give you strength and peace.
