Logo design from LogoStick

March 22, 2007 at 02:45 PM

One of the many pretty decent online logo design tools, and they've got a great looking site as well. Not really any reason for your business, no matter how small, to have an ugly ass logo you did yourself in Microsoft Word.

ProBlogger Darren Rowse's top money earners

February 11, 2007 at 10:03 PM

His top money earners on his websites include Chitika, AdSense, Text Link Ads, and Amazon Associates. I use all of those except Chitika with varying amounts of success. AdSense is easiest to use and most consistent but Text Link Ads could eventually be a big monthly income stream. Definitely have to try my luck with Chitika when I get around to redesigning this site.

eBay is buying StubHub

January 11, 2007 at 08:58 PM

eBay is buying ticket resell site StubHub for $285 million. StubHub is a great way to get tickets to sporting events (a lot of season ticket holders sell their tickets when they can't get to games.) I love the way StubHub functions and don't really want another auction site, hopefully eBay doesn't try to merge the service into the main site. There's a market for both methods.
