> Instead of ads, I thought I would try and sell an NFT of the page [...] In the end it was successful, selling for just over $200
... It was at this point in the read that I got very excited and broke away from the article to research "NFTs" - because I've been known to create digital art and I've even written a JS library to help people create digital art (kinda). Luckily I got interrupted during my research and, once the interruption completed, I returned to the article rather than my research tabs - which were closed pretty quickly after the read completed.
> Most of the things I’ve posted [to Twitter] are liked exclusively by my colleagues, my Mum and my ex-flatmate. It’s screaming into the void.
My Mother doesn't do social media. I doubt she'd approve of the words I choose to scream.
 https://www.creativebloq.com/features/what-are-nfts - "NFTs use a monster amount of energy in their creation. So much so that many protesters are worried about the very real impact the craze could have on the environment" ... this is seriously scary; it puts me off the whole idea of trying to monetise my creative work in this way.

Ask HN: What's a side project you built to make money that hasn't?
news.ycombinator.com | 2020-12-30
> So what's a side project [...] that hasn't actually earned you money?
There was a time when I dreamed that my "side project" - Scrawl-canvas - would bring me fame and fortune, or maybe a few sponsorships, or a job ...
> Why do you think it hasn't been as successful as you thought it would be?
> What would you do differently if you did it again?
Actually, nothing! The primary goal of my work when I started it was to have a project on GitHub which I could use to help leverage me into the world of professional web development. My library helped me land my first full-time gig, so in that sense it achieved its goals 100%
> How much time/money did you spend building it?
18 months full time before I managed to get a job. Since then, maybe 2-3 days a month (if that) on maintenance and feature development. The upside of having an unpopular JS library is that nobody bothers you with questions about how to do stuff.
> What kind of iterations / improvements did you make to try and salvage it?
I'm not in the business of "salvage" - nowadays I work on the library partly to keep my coding skills sharp (next on the to-do list is learning Rust/WebAssembly to see if I can make the library run a bit faster), but mainly because it's creative and fun and after this year we all need a bit more fun in our lives!
