earth
“This is a hobby.  People who are at this level can be voracious consumers of content.  Voracious.   You can often make more money from ads than from selling the product… and if you do both you can really cash in.” – EGOL

May I have your attention please? The theme among the community has been on branding, promoting, and getting attention to one’s web site.
