Latest Project – WordPress Theme Search Site

Back in April I wrote a blog post that made me $75 for the month of April comparing a few WP themes together and giving my opinion on which was the best. Since then, the site has grown to have over 4,000 visitors per day and has made nearly $10,000 for the affiliate companies that [...]

What I Get for 8 Year of Verizon Loyalty

The short answer is, "nothing" but read on for the story. On my trip to NYC this past weekend my phone, not checking both ways before crossing the street, was run over by a car. Living up to its name (Incredible) it still turned on, received texts and phone calls, and can take and keep [...]

I've been feeling a bit nostalgic as we near the benchmark of 100 days left in 2012. The year is flying by, and in memory I look back to 2010 when I first attempted to start making a living by doing something online. I had initially started a website with which I was going to catalog [...]
