InkBlot Newsletter: Tip Jar, Commission & Subscription Service, Meet Instar!
InkBlot launches a new sub service called Instar this April 2023! Tips, commissions, subscriptions & more!
We are proud to announce the launch of Instar, a subservice within InkBlot that will handle tip jars, commissions, subscriptions and digital purchases.
It was a kickstarter promise back in 2021 to have a service like this and we are excited to finally launch it. This will be integrated into InkBlot so that you only need one place. This will take TIME as we are using this initial release to gather feedback about the system, how to handle the processes and more before integrate. We do NOT want to interrupt the flow of InkBlot and rush to integrate Instar.
You can learn more about Instar here. Waitlist inside as well, MUST be an inkblot user. Roadmap and Docs on Instar will be updated in the coming week.
Development regarding InkBlot has been going, we have released about 3 updates within the last two months before we are focusing on just solely the infrastructure revamp. We need to make InkBlot faster, and more stable, so to sacrifice a 2-3 weeks to focus on this is something we are doing.
We super excited about the support we've been receiving the last few months! A member of our community reached out to us & proposed a fundraising idea, which we’ve now brought to fruition: An Art Drive!
This is our FIRST ANNUAL DRIVE! We are a creative community site and want to provide a creative way for our community to be involved in helping build and keep InkBlot around for the long run! This drive would help fund InkBlot for a year without the worry of stopping development!

Could we optimize the site first? It's running terribly at the moment and the mobile app isn't much better on my older phone.
