What’s that sound the guy in the cartoon makes when he does a quintuple-take? audyaudyaudyaudyaudy!
That sound came from me this morning when I checked in to my Kickstarter project, 24 hours after launch.
I had no idea this project would resonate with this many people so quickly. Being more than halfway there so quickly means I have to start thinking about stretch goals.
But that will come later.
One of the things I really hoped for was to have this project selects as a Staff Pick.
The material I read in preparing to launch this Kickstarter suggested that a charming video was the best way to become a Staff Pick. So, with the help of my wife who directed the video, we created a video made of pure corndog.
It seems to have worked. On Day One, Under The Half Dome was listed in Staff Picks.
To make matters even more exciting, by 9 PM, this project got listed as Most Popular on Kickstarter’s home page.
I must say, Sierra fans are the most loyal fans. Every Kickstarter created by Sierra designers has been successfully funded.
Hopefully, this Sierra composer will meet with similar success. There’s 29 more days, so I can’t help feeling optimistic.
