SnoopyList.com has been running since February, 2014. In that time, we’ve had a lot of ads posted and Peanuts collectors have been able to get some great collectibles. This service has been 100% free and supported by ads. I’ve made a total $85 from ads since this site started. The site costs $15 a year for the domain, and a one time fee of $19 for the classified ads plugin. The hosting has been free since it shares hosting with CollectPeanuts.com, its parent website. So, monetary invest has been about $65, leaving me with $20 for the many hours I’ve put in.
Recently, a problem has arisen that I don’t know how to easily fix. Images are not posting correctly to classifieds. It could take $20 to upgrade the classifieds plugin to the latest version, or it could be a whole reworking of the site. Personally, I’m not 100% happy with how the $19 classifieds plugin works, so I’d love to redevelop the site using another plugin called Toolset. Unfortunately, that plugin costs $149.
At this time, I just don’t have the inclination to redevelop SnoopyList.com without support. Obviously, I’ve put in a lot more work than $20 can support over 2 years. If it’s not being enjoyed by other people, I just don’t feel there’s a drive to put more in when no one is getting anything out of the site. I have a lot of Peanuts cataloging, remodeling projects and house cleaning that can be done instead of taking care of SnoopyList.com.
This is the point where you come in. Is it worth it to you to have a Free classified ads site for the Peanuts collector community to swap their stuff? Vote yes by making a donation or becoming a sponsor on Patreon. If I receive $300 total in donations or $75 a month in sponsorships on Patreon, I will continue on this site. If you have the skills to help me out with WordPress, please let me know at email@example.com. Is it time to move on? Or renew our passion for swapping Peanuts memorabilia?
