Thank you all for your responses. I love this community and think the members and admins are what make this forum what it is today.
I was planning and would have loved to join last year but the cost was too high for me. I just finished paying off all my school loans last year so I was kinda broke at that time.
|My biggest mistake was that I should have started attending PubCon |
I agree! I need to get rid of this addiction! :)
|don't spend too much time on here unless you are researching or trying to get help! |
Thats how I feel when im doing websites.
|I often can't tell whether I'm working or playing. |
Same here,during those long hours of flying and driving all over US all I could think of was new ideas. Cool ideas. But I never had the time to actually develop and work on some.
|I always have 100 ideas in my head and not enough time to do them all as one person. At my old "job" I had to put in my 8am-4pm hours and that was it |
The first response of one the WW admins was: go to the gym on a daily basis! ;) I definitely think that's a must and for the past 2 weeks I've done a pretty decent job :) and hope to continue in doing so.
|having a hobby or activity that gets you out of the house is good too, for your mental state of mind :-) |
Yes, I am aware of that. I started my first site 5 years ago. I had my ups and downs, downs and then downs! hehe... extremely stressful even though I wasn't financially dependent on it. excellent post. thanks for the heads up :)
|It can literally take years regardless of whether you spend 2 hours a day or 10 hours a day. |
Advertisements through third parties such as Google adsense, Adbrite, etc... In regards to marketing, I can send a few thousand visitors/day from my own and other partner websites.
|In general terms, what will generate your income, and how will you market it? |
I do have 3 new business ideas and will start with the first. After development and marketing a little I will start the second and third cause the software/script/coding will be very similar. If it does become very successful within a year, I would love to share the link and the whole story. That is what I am hoping for :)
These 3 new websites will differ from my old ones in the sense that they will be Web 2.0. So I should have visitors posting rather than myself updating content alone. I hope word of mouth helps me in marketing cause I have recently been out of luck with Google and would hate to depend on it again! Due to lack of knowledge in coding, database and ... I tend to disable the comment, registration, posting modules. But now that I have more time, I will try to learn a bit more til I become more confident in giving my users access to Web 2.0 features and see how it goes.
p.s.> I am also planning to private tutor math and physics and also Piano (started when I was 6 ;) and made a very decent amount $/hr last 2 years although the hours werent much). This way I can make some extra cash and its a good excuse to leave my apt for 1-2 hours/day.
