Life of a webmaster
what do you do through the day

Off late I have been getting a bit bored. Have started outsourcing a lot of the development work - bogged down with the work involved in raising an infant [yeah we had a son recently] - add to that my deteriorating health.

What do you when you are a successful entrepreneur and have made some money - any ideas?

become a villain and write up an elaborate plan to capture james bond!

I think I'd pretty much kick clients / projects that aren't fun, and concentrate on those that are. It's great if you don't have to look for a commerce-angle, you can just make the old enterprise-thing "this site is here to solve that problem", no compromising "this site is here to solve that problem and make me money".

should you chose to go the villain-route, call me, I'm tall, german and available as side-kick.

Bond: Bond - James Bond.
Janharders: Harders... in JANuary...
I HARDly ever bond.
Bond[confused]: So you two have an elaborate plan to capture me oi!
Roycerus: Yes, it's so elaborate - we have forgotten where to start - but it surely wasn't by talking about it with you.

------------

Nevermind - that was lame.

Anyways, no it's not that I don't have to worry about the financial aspects at all but yes, I am over that initial stage of getting things going and right now there are other priorities to fully get into something new.

Would love to know how others handled this phase - or if they ever had such a phase?

If you've made some money... enjoy it. :)

When bored with success look for a new adventure. Ninja fighting stunt double work in Hollowood (sic) movies might not be that new adventure, but don't rule it out!

Do you have any new dad groups in your area you could join? I was involved in several mom's classes and groups when our kids were little and it was nice knowing other moms for play dates and advice. There aren't as many dad's groups around but I have heard of one or two in my area.

Give in to the desire to go play with your kid.

in a couple of years you can get your new son to do all the work, and then spend your days down the pub.

or, if you haven't done it already, have kids.
You'll never be bored again.

Figure out how to make more money.

Actually I love the idea of farming... But land is very expensive here. So I guess I need to make more money.. Buy land.. Start farming... Have more kids... Who can then take over the farming and I can sit in a pub! All set... Thanks

I keep asking... What do you guys do through the day?

Ah, doh! Missed the original. I watch network TV in the background... those syndicated entertainment reality courtroom "dramas" or listen to vintage rock 'n' roll. Sadly, my kids are dead before me and both of my wives are dead, too. And I'm old enough not to do either again.

Tweak those pages. A better description, keywords, content is king and hardly ever satisfied. Getting to the top is more fun than being there.
