Hello World!

hello-world Well here it is, another personal site for me – Dan Masters. I say another because this is actually the third personal website/blog that I have had in the last 3 years.

The first was idano.net which I started over 5 years ago. Back then it was a photo sharing site that once my wife and I started to have kids they took it over. Now it is the portal for the idano Blog Network so once again I have been booted from it (it’s my blog network, don’t worry).

From there I setup a freely hosted WordPress blog at wordpress.com. danmasters.wordpress.com is still alive (and semi-active) and I post there occasionally. I never really took off on that blog due to the fact that they do not allow you to do any advertising to make money off of it.

Yes, I am shallow and like to make money from blogging. I started making money almost 2 years ago and have not looked back since. I am at the point now that it is making one of my house payments so that is pretty nice (I want it to make both of my house payments though!).

As much as I like to make money online this blog is not specifically designed for that. The idea behind this blog is that I get to post what I want about whatever I want. If it should happen to bring in money that would be great but I am not holding my breath. I say that with a smirk on my face because very few of the other blogs I have started with the intent to make money. I just started blogging and people came and clicked on ads and that was it.

Anyway, if you are reading this far you really have too much time on your hands, you should really go now. Bye now, see you later.
