Hello to my all dear followers!
GDPR (European General Data Protection Regulation) deadline is more and more near and I’m trying to be compliant as much as I can, before the May 25, 2018.
You may have noticed bars and pop-ups asking cookies consent because I’m trying to find the best working solution without stressing too much you.
MakeMusic! is a project I started in my free time, I’ve used AdSense as an income source to pay the hosting bills, and it worked till now.
I’ve tried to be GDPR compliant putting a banner and asking for the user cookies consent explaining that MakeMusic! is not collecting personal data but just aggregated statistics to see what articles are more appreciated by you, however people deny the cookies usage blocking also all AdSense ads and blocking the small income.
So I’ve tried to think to an alternative and I need your opinion about it.
What I though is : if I removed all the advertisements you would be willing to support MakeMusic! through a platform like Patreon (click to learn more)?
With few supporter and some donation we could try to keep alive MakeMusic!
The alternative is to transform MakeMusic! into a private club, but to be honest I don’t like very much this idea basically because all the published stuff is free.
Please let me know in the comments or write me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org, it’s very important to me to understand your opinion.
