    Thanks Mike #1, glad you liked it.

    And thanks Mike #2 for missing me ... LOL.

    The design business really took off fast. When I was offering free design help, I was getting 30 to 40 requests per month, but there was no way I could help that many people. I also noticed a few (less serious) hobbyist were taking advantage, and coming time and time again with their "next project" and wanting my free design help.

    I really wanted to help people that actually wanted a layout, so charging a fee was the only way to separate the "tire-kickers" from those that were actually going to do something with my designs.

    After that, the design help requests dropped down to less than 10 per month, and I'm also selective about what projects I take on. I also set up an blog to hosts my designs for anyone that is looking for a track plan.

    (So that's where I have gone.)

    Take care,

    Rob.

      Congratulations, Rob. If you don't have time to post much here, perhaps you can hint to your clients that build threads here will get encouragement and constructive comments.

        Thanks for the advice James ... I will keep that in mind ... but now that I think about it ... it wouldn't be too much trouble for me to also post here ... I will start adding some designs to my old thread.

        Take care,

        Rob.
