One thing done..

Some of you might have noticed the small bluish thing below the blog Archives to the right of this page. Thats the google adsense thing I was talking about. (Yeah..they approved it :) It shows ads relevant to this page and if you click there, I make money! So all I need to make a million dollars is a few million clicks on those ads. Of course getting a million clicks aint easy. However, if this blog were really popular - say 1 million people visited it every day - a conservative estimate of one out of 30 people actually clicking on the ads, would mean a million clicks a month!

Wooh...millionare in a year! Good that I started this blog.

But, as always, there is a catch in this business model (quite similar to Catch-22 actually). To get my readership up to a million readers a day, this blog needs to be well-known in the community. So how can we get people to know this? Advertising looks like the only solution to me. Whatever I may say about my skills as a reader magnet, I know word-of-mouth advertising aint gonna do the trick for me. Do I pay for advertising? Yeah...looks like the only idea.

Any VCs willing to fund it? Aspiring dotcom startup with an advertising based business model here....
