Since I'm new to the modding-community and sort off new to case-modding, I can't help by giving advice on how to get sponsored. Although, I saw it was mentioned, that it would be a good thing to start with a little website. I just wanted to let you know that WordPress or Joomla are some very simple and easy to work with Content Management Systems (short: CMS). I happen to work at a service desk for a webhosting company, as a part time job, next to studying. And I can tell you that having a simple but still professional-looking website doesn't have to be expensive or hard to create. Just make sure you choose a webhost which is willing to lend you proper support, preferably also by phone. If you ever run into any problems and your business depends on it, you'll want it to be up and running again asap!
I'm not sure if this will help you, but I guess it couldn't hurt to get it out there.
At the moment I am still working on my first real casemod and first desktop in 5 years (had a laptop for the meantime). Since I'm a student, I had to work my ass of next to studying to get the money I needed to get this thing on the road. But I can tell you, it was worth it. Like I said, it's not quite finished yet, but I already love how much can be done with so little
. Hang in there, and I'm sure you'll get there some day!
