    Making money? Ideas!

    I really want to find a way to make some cash online, whether its domain selling, template selling, or anything....I just don't really want a content site or an affilate site.

    Anyone have any ideas to throw around? I have very little start up capital (no more than $250).

    Blog! Hosting can be had for $2-3 a month and .infos start at $1.99/yr.

    Buy both hosting and a domain then spend the remaining on directory submissions and links embedded on other's blogs.

    Throw on adsense and update daily.
    Bulk rate myspace bulletins to 9000 friends!

    PM me.

    I've allways started by making a simple website and a blog. Adding lots and lots of content daily, spending alittle in advertising.

    ..and then I throw on adsense code. Allways brings little cash though not much for me . www.google.com/adsense

    Good luck though. Hpefully it will work for you.

    I've thought about the blog idea, and it might actually work. My friend and I have always wanted to writ a blog together....that could turn out well. I'll look into that and the directory some more. Thanks!

    Any other ideas?

    Hey, don't ruin my dream! You won't get rich quickly, but you can if you do everything right, thoroughly following your goal.

    Blogging is kind of attracting me because I like writing, and for a 14 year old, the money can easily equate to more than the average job.

    Hah. Yeah that's the hard part.

    I'm thinking of writing a blog of quetions, where I just post very conceptual questions about the world and then attempt to answer them.

    Could be fun.

    No true fan would refer to the sport as soccer, you've been exposed as a charlatan based on that one sentence.

    Run a blog for a while, make some profit, write a book about how you did it, sell the book.

    Are you wanting more to take an existing script or method and run with it?
    Or are you planning to do your own custom coding?

    Do a blog on why "Baseball > Soccer", easy enough. And I'll do up one on "Hockey > All".

    I would suggest finding a script that other people are using to make money and work with that for a while, and then you can slowly make it your own, and find your niche.
