I came across the Free Rice website not too long ago. It’s a site which offers 20 grains of rice to charity per vocabulary word you correctly define. It’s a pretty effective way to expand your vocabulary skills, and it’s for a good cause. So far they have donated over 10 billion grains, and maybe a few thousand of those are mine. The idea is quite creative, if I do say so myself. Everyone wins: the sponsors of the site get exposure, the guy who owns freerice.com probably keeps money for himself to pay for “server costs,” the user of the site knows more useless vocabulary words, and most importantly – hungry people get rice.
I haven’t updated my blog in over 4 months, so I thought I’d do a quick update for my loyal readers who have been without my really exciting and interesting blog posts for so long. Recently I have built Brainy World, a site with lots of brain teasers and stuff like that. I have also developed DreamDB.com which is a dream journal site. As you can see, it’s getting really popular with 2 whole registered users with confirmed e-mail addresses (including me). Thanks for reading, but don’t get your hopes up for more updates any time soon, because I’ll be too busy counting all the money I accrue from my successful and revenue-generating websites.
I just started Directory Ace yesterday and so far it has been a big hit. I just promoted it on a few forums and it already has links pouring in for free submissions. At the time of this posting it has nearly 400 links, which I think is quite impressive for such a new directory. I put a lot of work into it and spent a bit of money to get a unique template and the paid version of PHP Link Directory. Feel free to submit your sites to it for free, I’ll approve them quickly.
I’m proud to announce that the first theme at Theme Lab has been released, Smooth Khaki. It’s an XHTML valid theme with 20 alternative header images for you to choose from. Visit Theme Lab for the live demo and other information on licensing, etc.
Again, I know I haven’t been writing as much as I should, it is still my goal to become a regular blogger with feed subscribers, etc. Unfortunately that hasn’t happened yet. Good news is I’m really trying to start to become a regular blogger. Check back often for new posts, and if that doesn’t happen, then I apologize in advance. I hope you like the new theme I am currently using from N.Design Studio. I’ve also added a “Network” page which lists all my current sites.
Lately I’ve been working on a few new projects, one being a WordPress themes site featuring all original themes. These theme sites can get very popular due to the required links at the bottom of every theme. I currently have about 5 original themes collected. I’ll probably mix it up between free and paid themes. I don’t want to reveal the domain I’ll be using for this project just yet, so check back soon when this project is more complete, I’ll be sure to post an update.
I know I haven’t updated my blog in over a month, I’ll try to keep the blog more updated. I have just discovered a wonderful site at Squidoo.com. It is sort of hard to explain what exactly it is, but basically it hosts pages or “lenses” of content. You can earn revenue through Google ads, or Amazon or eBay links, payable through PayPal. Apparently Google really loves these lenses, and rank high for good keywords. I’ve only been using Squidoo for a few days so I have yet to see any good results, however I’m sure they will come. My username there is lelandf (you can click on that link to see all my lenses) and I’ve already made a few lenses, mostly talking about domain names and some other random subjects. If you do happen to sign up, it would be appreciated if you did so through my referral link. It helps both of us if you sign up through a referral, as you get an extra $5 added to your account once you reach $15. It’s pretty cool, and I’d recommend you sign up ASAP!
Sorry I haven’t been updating my blog as much as I should. I have been busy working on my new webiste development company called Stylish Websites. I’m going to focus on building websites for small business owners in the area. Not sure how I’m going to go about effectively advertising it, since I’m pretty much clueless in promotion and marketing. If you have any ideas feel fee to comment. Not expecting any though, since this blog gets like 1 visit per day.
I bought this site a few weeks ago but haven’t had a chance to really promote it. It is a fully functional to-do list manager, with the ability to add multiple lists and remove them when you’re done. It apparently can be accessed via a cell phone as well but I’ve never tried that before since my cell phone sucks and has no internet. I use this site myself regularly and it helps me keep organized, you should check it out at Todobu.com.
