David Krug today recommends doing a Real Estate blog, if you wanna make money. Heh, I got our real estate guy, Stan Mackey, to blog (he helped Chris and Ponzi Pirillo find their house recently, we vote him best real estate guy in Seattle) but he hasn’t blogged since January. Hi Stan! See, I was ahead of my time when I told him early last year to start a blog.
But, seriously, if you’re looking to make money with a blog, why don’t you just look for an audience that has a high affinity for transactions (which is why Gizmodo and Engadget made such great businesses, cause their readers buy lots of gadgets), along with a fairly good audience size (beer drinkers anyone?) with low competition (plumbers!).
If you’re a plumber who is a beer freak and who has more gadgets than Vic Gundotra, give me a call. Heheh.
Google Reader has been having problems all weekend long and I haven’t seen any bloggers talking about them. Why is that? Because the reader part is working great. But the “sharing” part? Everytime today I try to share an item with you I’m getting an error. Is Google hitting scalability problems with its Reader?
Can a few more of those smart PhD’s please help out the Reader team and get the problem fixed? Thanks!
But, I guess it’s fair. Many USA workers are taking the day off because of President’s day.
UPDATE: my readers all said it was working great for them, then one guy said “clean out the browser cache.” I did that, and now it’s working again. I’m using Firefox. Weird that that would make this stuff start working again (I deleted everything, cookies, cache, history, etc).
When I say “that Web 2.0 video” do you immediately know what I’m talking about? I asked a few friends that recently and they all knew. This video has gotten spread around the world — YouTube shows it’s been watched more than a million times. John Battelle found it so interesting that he interviewed the guy who created it. I’m glad he did, cause I found it interesting too.
