Lets make some money-making websites...

I admit, after four years on the net, I have dozens of strike outs, a few base hits, and one double.

My base hits are my vocabulary website which brings in some advertising money and if we stopped spending time on it, would be profitable. My Spelling Website makes no money, costs alot, but is full of potential. My writing tutorial website costs and makes not too much. Probably breakeven. And, the homeschooling website, pays the bills.

I won't list all my total failures but suffice to say, I've tried some great educational online ideas that haven't turned out to be great ideas.

There seem to be people out there with sheer hustle and know-how, are making money with only investments of their own time. For instance, I was just reading a blog (somewhat randomly) called: Karlonia
