The topic of long races series that Blueline started has made for great conversation with lots of opinions being shared. It's been great insight into tastes and motivations in our hobby.
The latter of which I'm going to breach at the risk of being accused of "going there."
My poll question is simple:
Are you trying to make money with your diecast racing?
The keyword there is "trying" which suggests intent. Some folks are just racing to have fun because they like it and it's nothing more. They put money in but never get any money out. In otherwords, a true hobby.
The rest of us are racing with intent to make money in some fashion, whether that's from YouTube videos, sponsorships, or direct sales. It doesn't matter if it's trying to be a little extra side money, or big money that feeds your family. If you're monetizing anything, you're trying to make money. Period.
But...lets be clear that trying to make money is okay. There are no bad guys here. There's no shame in trying to make a profit...it doesn't mean you love the hobby any less. And it's okay to not care about the money...it doesn't mean you love the hobby any more.
PS: I don't want this discussion to be about *how* to make money with diecast racing. There's plenty of content out on the internets about how to make money with YT, social media, etc. Google it.
