    OFF-TOPIC Vote for Kidgas

    Don't know if this violates the decorum of the forum (and if so, please delete). However, I have been active on Hubpages for the last 6 weeks writing articles and observing the internet mantra of "Content is King". It has been an incredible learning experience, and I have even earned a few...

    WEB/DIGITAL Question for MJ, Tom, or others with experience

    I have an idea for a forum like this (but totally unrelated topic). My questions are: How much did it cost to get up and running? As you may know, I recently started a blog and haven't spent anything yet but time. I don't want to put a lot of money into it but plan to use blogging revenues...
