I started my blog late 2013, starting with a free wordpress account and moving onto a GoDaddy Hosting account. My goal was to create a writing resource blog that took writing education to the next level.

During this time, I wanted to know how to design a castle for a story I was writing. This led to looking at photoshop tutorials on Worldbuilding . I began to reverse engineer these tutorials for Paint.net and creating my own techniques. I then decided to put these tutorials on my site for free, giving birth to Madness Worldbuilding.

At first it didn't get a lot of attention, but starting in June, after posting on Reddit /r/worldbuilding, the site got popular, and to this day, has had a visit by at least 1 person to view my tutorial.

In 2015, my tutorial came to an end, and I expanded the Worldbuilding to talk about things one might find in a world. Many guides to Worldbuilding ask questions, "What resources are in your world", with no context of how to answer that question. My new guide tries to answer that question, starting with the first 7 metals known to mankind: Gold, Silver, Copper, Lead, Iron, Tin, and Mercury. These detail guides can help any writer know how to implement these into their story.

It is my hope to talk about many other things, from weapons, to forging, to perservatives, to socks, to just about anything. My current plans would take about 20 years to write an article about everything I desire. It is a lifetime project.

More than just my own site, I also host a few others, helping them make their own blog. Such as Nicohle Christopherson . Since the beginning on my private blog and with helping others get their own blog, we have accumulated over 84,000 views, with an average view of 2800 per month.

$250 will pay for the next year, but if I can get $500, I can get the next two years. I need this by March 30th, 2017. Any remaining money will go towards my day-to-day life towards the goal of treating my disability and getting medical insurrance.
