Some of you might recall, way back in December, I presented my blog readers with a challenge: What could I do with the traffic this website attracts (about 9000 visitors a day, now) that would both generate income and provide a valuable service?
Well, the ideas flooded in, about fifty all together. I was impressed with the ingenuity of people’s ideas, and am thankful for everyone’s kind words regarding my site. May the Ghost of Jimi Hendrix watch over and protect your guitars and amps, and may the Spirit of Keith Richards keep your internal organs going long after their warranties have expired (I know, I know, he’s technically still alive).
Anyway, the last of the ballots have been cast by my multinational panel of e-commerce experts. And the winner is…
Dave Sharpe, of Kelso, Washington (a fellow Pacific Northwesterner!).
Dave has won $100, plus 10% of any money I make off his idea in 2007. Actually, implementing his plan will take a while, so let’s say 10% of what I make for eight months following implementation.
In my next blog entry, I’ll tell you about Dave’s great ideas, and also respond to all the other submissions.
