My Writing Blog and Other Projects

As promised in an earlier post, I have created a writing blog, and I've been posting to it. It's interesting so far. My goal is to post every day, but that hasn't quite happened yet. I am posting regularly.

I'm actually posting regularly to all of my sites, except for the one I haven't really started yet. That project will start soon. I'm taking a different approach to that site, in that I'm going to create a large chunk of content up front for the site, and write a bunch of articles to experiment with article marketing.

I like to use my web projects as experiments in various topics. For instance, this is my main site, and it is a mix of a lot of things. It's a mixture of personal and professional topics and a place to document my career and some of my interests. I have another project that is a marketing experiment. It is based on a subject that interests me, for motivational purposes, but it is really in existence for me to experiment with affiliate marketing and building a directory of information. I also have a personal blog that is mainly about documenting my view of things and providing information.

So, an update is due on my domain parking experiment. I have not made a dime on that. I have other options for the site in mind, so it's not a total loss. I have had some traffic to the site, but not much. I think it is largely the type of project that needs a better domain name. If you have the right domain name at the right time, you could passively make a lot of money using Adsense for Domains. But, until your domain name becomes a seriously hot search term, it could be a challenge. I'm not going to shut it down yet, but I'm considering other ideas for this property. I'll write more about those when they come to fruition.
