About

Avelar News is a web-based magazine style news site.  We focus on all topics, from the newest movies to scientific discoveries, to tech toys, to conventions.

Ideally, we'd like to have writers all over the world, giving us varied point of view for the many different locations. It would also give us access to people, places, and pictures that are hard to come by from behind a computer screen.

We'd also like to move to a more streamlined magazine website, an upgrade from the blog-like style it currently uses.

What this campaign covers

Since most people want to know exactly what they are investing in, we decided to include a list of items that this Kickstarter would be covering.

  • Hosting & Domain Costs: We want to make sure we're able to stay online for as long as possible.
  • Designing the Website: Although we use templates, they cost money to use, especially if you're looking for more features than just the post. We will use the money to either pay for an awesome template that we can customize, or pay someone to design our own unique page.
  • Paying contributors: Although for now, the goal is to have just a few new writers, we'd like the chance to be able to offer some compensation, as this will allow us to attract more people.
  • Other Media: In order to use some of the images or videos available, or shoot or own, money is necessary.  This is either to buy the rights or permissions, or buy or rent the equipment necessary.

Risks and challenges

One of the challenges that we'll face is in getting enough contributors, especially from all over the world. We hope to get past that by slowly building up a base of people who enjoy our articles, and as others hear about, we can slowly seek writers from this pool. We also hope to post to writing or journalism forums to get people looking for something new to write.

Another challenge we might face is creating content that people want to read. We plan to get around this by keeping an eye on trending topics, as well as taking our cues from the readers and their (hopefully constructive) comments.
