Vacationing In Colwood

21st Birthday
I meant to post a few posts on various topics in the past few weeks, but I’ve been very busy with web development, and finishing off work. I’ve also been doing some work for a couple of clients. One of the posts was to celebrate my 21st birthday, which was August 5th. Happy Birthday to me! Some friends and I went to see the Bourne Ultimatum 3, which I thought was a good ending to the Bourne trilogy. After we went to Boston Pizza, then ended up at my place.

Vacation
I am currently vacationing in Colwood BC, a suburb of Victoria. It is quite nice here, my buddy Dave Venter was kind enough to let me stay at his place. We’ve been doing a lot of relaxing, and have also been working on our various websites. I’ll post pictures when I get back.

New Websites

I have launched 25 new websites in the past week. One of them is a blog. If there is one thing I hate doing, it is writing content. Once the blog gets going, I’m going to outsource it to a good writer that I know of. I’m doing a lot of social bookmarking, pinging, and other methods of promotion on these sites.

Nice Domain
A few weeks ago I purchased a PR3 domain from someone on the DigitalPoint forums for $15, and it expires in 2009. I didn’t want to let it sit there empty, but I didn’t have the time to properly develop it. I scraped a couple of articles in the niche, and then I threw up an offer from AzoogleAds. I let it sit for awhile, then I log in a couple of days ago and was surprised to see $25.55 from that site, from one conversion. I’ve been promoting this site a bit, and am thinking about how I should develop the domain. One of the previous owners of the domain did a LOT of promotion on the domain, on Digg, Reddit, as well as setting up several related blogspot blogs with content, linking to the domain. The site ranks well for the content I have on it, and I plan on developing this domain.

Affiliate Marketing
I’m not going to give much of an update in this area at the moment, I have some long-term projects that I working on that I’m keeping hush-hush, for good reason. Once I start heavily promoting them, I will be giving stat updates.

School
College starts next week, I’m not sure exactly what my living conditions will be. I will either be living in Dorms, or at home. It depends on whether I get accepted into the dorms or not, I find out Tuesday, which is when school probably starts. If I don’t get into the dorms, then I will have to commute. Public transportation will suck, and I would have to get up 2 hours earlier. All that I can say, is that it will be an interesting year.
