All posts for the day December 22nd, 2010

I’m working for myself!

Well, I was at my friend Anna’s the other night, and she’s just this little ball of entrepreneurial energy and for some reason whenever I hang out with her I get these great ideas for website that no one has made.

So, last night at her house I actually wrote down everything I thought of, and registered a great site name. I’m drawing up the DB schema (for those of you that know what one is), and planning out feature sets as I write this*.

Meanwhile on the comic book site front. My associate, and really good friend, approved the last idea I had at Anna’s — actually it was kind of her idea — Advertisements for the page. I signed up for google AdSense yesterday afternoon, and got approved last night! My hope is that AdSense will generate enough revenue to offset my yearly hosting and registration charges, but who knows. We only have about 100 books in the database, and I’m still working on the feature set for the site. I just got accounts working after having a hold up thanks to me not including a very tiny, but very vital piece of information/code in the registration page. I even got reCAPTCHA working on it so hopefully there will be no spam on the site.

Ok I sense you non-techies nodding off. So I will finish by saying: “Screw Working for the Man! Imma be the Man!”

(*I know I can’t possibly write this post and write out my plans at the same time but humor me!)
