Well, yes, it's true Indiegogo has worked for me (150% funded! Still 9 days left to go!
Woohoo!), so I have nothing to complain about. This reaction is just "the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence" kind of thing.
Actually, my husband and I talked about this a couple days ago. Would we have used Kickstarter instead of Indiegogo, if it had been available? Kickstarter has the lure of the larger community, and name recognition. But Indiegogo offers flexible funding. This was our first crowdfunding attempt, and we really
had no idea if we would reach our goal. I was very nervous. Since Indiegogo allows you (if you choose flexible funding) to keep the donations even if you don't make your funding target, we likely would have chosen Indiegogo just for the peace of mind.
I read an interesting comparison of the positives and negatives of Kickstarter vs. Indiegogo
in a post on GeekMom this week.
