    I thought you might be interested to hear that the people that run indieKarma also run a subscription service, called PixelPass, where you can charge between 25 cents and 2 dollars a month to subscribers. I guess it suffers from the same problem that indieKarma does, it needs a really big group of members and publishers for it to become workable.

    Actually, it does interest me, Andy — but I don’t want to hide any of my content behind a walled garden. With PixelPass wouldn’t I need to do that?

    I don’t know to be entirely honest, I just noticed that indieKarma was run by a company called PixelPass and thought I’d look into what other products/services they ran, but didn’t look into it too much. The idea of cutting off content from readers wouldn’t be my kind of thing either.

    From the looks of this page it adds an obscuring strip to the middle of your blog, which would probably annoy me more than a pop-up. Maybe its modifiable, but I’d imagine that with my knowledge for your un-willingness to put ads on preshrunk that it wouldn’t be suited to you.

    Ahh well, the search continues for the perfect revenue service.
