I created my first site with my dial up provider, they charged me nearly $50.00 a month for both services, I had a shared IP address for my website. Not a reliable or fast place for a website. But what i learned was worth it. I dropped out of search engines nearly every other month.

I created a few directories, I created a shopping mall of 100% affiliates banners ads, I am not 100% ashamed, It was dynamic and cool. If you missed it OK, but i did alot of coding with the belief if i create it they will come.

I had over 100 hits a day from excite, on one url (an informational URL). I dropped that host and recreated on a free web host site. I became interested in SEO. I created a site that makes money instead of loses it (on a free host), I am still here today (but not a real player yet (not based on my beliefs of what i can do) ... although the ducks are lined up).

I am wondering? How did you start?

Shortly after sending out that email, I discovered something aboutthe internet I never knew. Eemails which comment on an NFP org.'s website somehow magically transform in route. When such emails are opened at the NFP side, the subject line always reads:

On a long slow learning curve am I, lol.
