To Dan's defense, I can understand why he just doesn't give it to someone...
Websites are first, profitable if you want to aim them that way... I don't know that TCA is for Dan, so I'm just saying they can be if his isn't, so I could see not just handing over an established place to someone without compensation. Also, they're like your own work of art as well, so I can see not wanting to just give someone something you made yourself from scratch. Two pretty valid reasons I think Dan doesn't just give the thing to anyone.
Ultimately I think you're better off starting your own site, as many (most) customizers did way back when to show off their figures... There was a time, long, long ago before TCA existed, when everyone just hosted their stuff somewhere online and linked to it when people wanted to check it out. Hell, Photobucket's very easy to use, so even if you don't want to get into a big ole website deal with html coding and all that, you could just use Photobucket.
Speaking as someone that works at a site, it takes a lot of your time... I don't really focus on customizing at all anymore I'm afraid. I've barely touched a project in the last 2 years really, and others have been shelved for longer than that. Between kids, spouse, home, cars, work/life in general, and then the added duties of a website too, it's just hard to find free time... Oh and add in the fact you're still a collector first, tracking down stuff daily, maybe going to toy shows or local collecting meetings and things... It's pretty hectic to add in customizing and running two other websites.
