The Online Music Business Sucks

A year ago I wrote about how I started outsourcing my song performances, because I had written over 100 songs but don’t sing or play any musical instruments. Since then, I have actually made a lot of progress, but like with most things in life, it is a mixed bag. As I described in that… Read More »

My First Kiss

Fear. That is what it came down to. In a previous blog posting, I talked about my First Date in middle school. We fell in love, but never kissed. I wanted to of course, but we were young and inexperienced and it never ended up happening. Then came high school. I did not have any… Read More »

Google’s Mobilegeddon

Google made their much anticipated mobile-friendly update (nicknamed “Mobilegeddon”) last week, where a site’s search engine ranking now takes into account whether the site is mobile-friendly or not.

Domain Name Prices

I find the current state of the domain name market confusing.

Illegal Sites

If you are a small company, it is important to do whatever you can not to get sued, because a lawsuit will eat up all your time and money, even if you think you did nothing wrong.

Are .Com Domains Headed For A Fall?

There are already over 400 new gTLDs available right now, such as .music, .shop, .love, .nyc, .eco., .news, .hotel, .dentists, and .money, with thousands more soon to come. There is a huge debate within the domain industry as to whether or not these domains will succeed, and if they do, will .com still remain king.… Read More »

Amazon Unlimited Books Membership – A Review

Today Amazon.com introduced a new service called Kindle Unlimited, where you pay a $9.99/month and you can read as many e-books as you want (they call it “unlimited”, but it actually has a limit of holding on to 10 e-books at a time). It gives you access to over 600,000 e-books and thousands of audiobooks.… Read More »

Bitcoin 2.0 – Making Money

I have recently been getting more involved in the wild and wonderful world of cryptocurrencies (such as Bitcoin), and now that I am more of an expert on the topic, I can share some of my experiences. The vast majority of the general public is still just trying to wrap their heads around the idea… Read More »
