Its a Sunday evening and I'm winding down after a hard days slog between setting up this forum and setting up an opt-in box on the homepage.

I took some time out to meet with a guitarist who is interested in forming an acoustic duo with me for some gigs here on the coast this summer. The meeting went well and I think it could be promising - time will tell as musicians are a strange bunch - I should know!

So now I'm back at the computer, doing my last hour or so of forum advertising, posting and general tidying up. It's been another very long day - I was up at six this morning and straight in front of the keyboard as my eyes were still adjusting to being opened!

My stats are getting better all the time - This site's been up for less than two weeks and I've just broken the 3,000 hits barrier. Should go over 5,000 by the end of the month - so that's made me a little happier as there have been no sales in the last few days.

Patience is called for in these times.

Remember... softly, sofly catchee monkey... :wink:

Good numbers Tel.

How have you been promoting your site? Have you submitted to directories, or article submissions? What's your secret to getting so much traffic already?

You should be able to post them now.

The blocking software I have running here is meant to stop spammers in their tracks and it works really well because most of them are stupid and impatient and won't wait a couple of days and too lazy to make a couple of decent posts before they're let into the system.

But genuine members who take the time to write some useful posts are unblocked pretty fast so feel free to post your ad.
:D

Its a quiet Saturday morning and I'm enjoying the rising sun as it filters through the blinds of my home office. I was up far too early this morning, with a million and one things to do and now I'm struggling to keep my eyes open, so it might be time for an early siesta!

I've just disabled the new registrations panel, after sitting here for yet another wasted age deleting all the new spammer sign-ups - so hopefully, unless they know another way in, that should free up some more of my time in future until the ignorant swines leave this forum alone - then I'll re-activate it and see what happens.

Yes, definitely time for a snooze... I need a yawning smilie lol! :lol:

Oh heaven! A week has passed by since my radical move and not one new spam sign-up! I haven't had to sit here for ages deleting the swines as they can't get in any more!

Bliss! :lol:

So now what?

I guess I'll have to attract some people in here because its like a ghost town right now. Oh well, at least its a ghost town without any damn spammers! 8)

Wow, I'd forgotten about that - it was nearly a year ago now!

3,000 hits sounded so great back then but of course I know better now - it actually doesn't mean much - but this site overall still gets around 400 unique visits a day which is pretty cool.

Pity the make money niche is the one that doesn't actually make money!!! What an irony...

A year on and knowing what I know now I look back at all the different ideas that either worked in part or just came to nought. Still it's a long hard learning curve making a living online, but now I'm doing it and actually earning more than I'm paying out, so its going in the right direction.

Don't worry Tammy, it happens to us all from time to time :lol:

I had a good laugh about it because I've done it in other forums - its even funnier when no-one seems to notice! :lol:
