There is a list of
sites that you will not find on the microbiologyinpictures.com at the momenteven though on the main site there are images indicating links to them (practically all of them are located in the second half of the index.php website):
The microbiologyinpictures is essentially a "one-man show". I started with this project in 2011. I had quite a lot of images of bacterial isolates and I thought it would be a good idea to share them with others. I was curious how it would look like on the internet if people would be interested.
So in my free time after working hours in the lab, I was improving my photography skills and at home was editing photographs, learning HTML basics, 3D graphic and everything needed for creating www.microbiologyinpictures.com and www.bacteriainphotos.com.
I hoped that gradually I would be able to convince other people to contribute with their images/texts and that in time the website(s) would be able to generate some income from the ads and I wouldn't be in the red at the end of each year.
Years were passing and the number of visitors was increasing (several thousand per day in 2015). I even convinced some of my friends to contribute to an image or two. I was aware of the fact that I could considerably expand the image portfolio of the websites with my further images. But I didn't do it. I was not sure if it was a good idea because I was leading endless battles with the people stealing the web content in the big quantity and displaying it on their own websites with the prospect to make money on them.
After those 5 years, I have finally perceived one thing, “this never-finished project taking my time and money is not able to support itself with ads.” Why? Because my visitors are not business inclined, “commercially interested” Yes, I could offer you some microbiology textbooks for a few cents per click on a banner (or even a few dollars if you would buy it) but in view of all the paperwork; it is not a solution for me because it would hardly cover the costs for the domain and Webhosting.
So I finally decided to ask directly you, visitor of the web, to support this project if you think it is worth it. I will be happy if could continue with this job (and hobby at the same time) but I can't continue with it alone. You will determine if it is worth to continue with it or not.
