I really enjoy all of the work that goes into running a website such as this, as I really enjoy origami, however, keeping things going is not free or cheap.

The web hosting for Paper Kawaii is approx. $200 per month, the website is now very large, with thousands of images, posts and pages. Currently I am using Dreamhost’s 8GB VPS.

It takes a really long time to create content. Each step is time consuming, designing models, making a video tutorial, taking photos, editing the photos and videos, uploading the video, creating the posts on the website and on social media.

Currently I am focusing on purchasing a new computer, as better quality and more regular content is of everyone’s benefit. A new computer that is capable of exporting 4K videos, has a decent graphics card and large screen.

Update 2021 – I’m using the same laptop from before, which I bought back in 2013. It’s been a great laptop, an Apple Macbook Pro. I highly recommend them… but only with an i7. I would like to get an Apple iMac, which will cost around $4000 Australian dollars. Hopefully soon as I would like to start making videos in 4K.

If you are in a position that you can spare a few dollars or more, I would very much appreciate it. If you are a returning visitor or you follow my youtube channel or mailing list, you’ll know I took a year long break, one of the main reasons for that break was because I just couldn’t justify spending time working on Paper Kawaii.
