  • Funny thing about forums

    About eighteen months ago, I tried to purchase a forum related to one of my e-commerce sites. I had contacted the forum owner, but he was not really interested in selling, since he had created the forum for a hobby he loved. So I made a mental note to check back in a year, since […]

  • Online Forums

    Now that the directory site is live, I thought I would move on to my next project. For the next project, I thought we should tackle a larger project and building a community fits that bill. Well before we can have a community, we will have to start with a forum. The great part about […]

  • Directory Startup Costs

    So after reading my last post you are ready to create your own directory but are wondering about the costs.  Well I will tell you.  There are really two types of costs to a directory site.  The upfront costs and the ongoing costs.  The upfront cost includes things like the cost of the script and […]

  • First Directory

    It is really amazing how fast time flies. It has already been over a month since I set my goal of creating at least one site a month for the next twelve months, and I am happy to say that the first site is live. While I was planning on creating a car-related site for […]

  • Klickerz Parking Service

    UPDATE. Like most parking services, Klickerz went under, but I will leave the post up for informational purposes. It has been a while since I posted, so I thought I would post about a new domain parking service that I am trying out. A couple of weeks ago, I began the process of moving my […]

  • Simple Niche Websites

    So now that I have set a goal of building at least a site every second month, I figure I would start off slow.  I acquired a domain for a car prototype that I would like to build into an information site.   The car was never mass-produced, and only the prototypes, were ever built.  There […]

  • Domainer?

    My blog seems to have turned into one about domaining since I have removed the posts about my websites and other ventures. So I thought I should set the record straight about my collection of domains and how I got started in domaining. It was not my original intention to buy domains to monetize. I […]

  • Domaining by the Numbers

    In my last post about domaining, I mentioned that it is possible to get a steady stream of income from owning domains. Since then I have had a couple of people ask me for more information, so I thought I would try to explain the concept a little better. I know no better way to […]

  • Google Adsense – The Overview

    Google AdSense is one of the easiest ways to generate a stream of income by cashing in on the Pay per Click market. How large a stream of income depends on your website? The concept is relatively simple. Google sells advertising known as Adwords. Website owners allow Google to display the ads on their sites […]

  • Domain Name Game

    As I mentioned in my last post, there have been a number of articles written in the mainstream press about domainers. The article in Business 2.0, “Masters of their Domains” shined a light on the domain market, and how people are using domains as a passive stream of income. Quotes like: …it’s all about the […]
