Kickstarter is a go.  

Got the all-clear from Kickstarter, so I’m working on setting up the page now. Suddenly seems much more real and nerve-wracking. :)

So I’d been thinking of running a 45 day campaign, but KS actually recommends 30 days. Is there any particular reason you, my good-hearted readers, feel it should be 45 instead of 30?

I have to do a video. Argh. I have no video skills. My only thought is making that lack a feature of the video…

I've seen a number of campaigns without a video. As long as you have a compelling picture, I think you'd be fine.

There usually a lull in the middle of the campaigns, so I'd probably go with 30 days. But that's me and I'd be chewing my nails the whole time. :-)

30 or bust
I'd go with 30. Successful campaigns seem to have a burst at the start and a burst at the end, and slack in the middle, so 45 days just means a longer slack period in the middle to be anxious about.

A good (short!) video is helpful to convey enthusiasm, but not a requisite.

Re: 30 or bust
OTOH, I'm going to be travelling for that middle period, so letting it lie fallow and not having to worry about getting a story out on the 1st could be good too. :)
