Interestingly enough, Kickstarter turned down my project, citing the reason, “Self-Help” violates their terms and conditions for projects. I did, however get to startsomegood.com and got the project approved.
I just didn’t think the folks at Kickstarter would view a book about helping people cope with unemployment in the current economy would be a bad project to approve. Apparently, they didn’t see it that way. Well, that’s their choice ultimately. I guess they don’t put helping the unemployed high on their list, but then again, we all have our business models and I guess helping the unemployed wasn’t in theirs.
So I’ll be posting the project on startsomegood.com tomorrow. I will also be resuming my technical articles tomorrow as well (after I get this going).
I want to truly thank the people at startsomegood.com for building their site as it is such an amazing idea. Definitely check them out!

great post, thanks for taking the time to write it
It’s sad that none of the people on the team that approves projects sees this as an important enough issue to consider.
