I came across a nifty sales tool again just recently. I've seen it before but for one reason or another, I've always had to pass on it as not being "there" yet.Well, I believe it's about as "there" as it's going to get now. It's called oddcast. Blogger doesn't allow you to use javascript in your posts, so I can't…

If you've followed my blog for over a few months, you might remember that I made an earthquake prediction back on September 2nd, 2004. In that prediction, I said this:I just hope the intensity of the event doesn't directly correlate with the intensity of the physical manifestation I've been experiencing. If it does, it will be absolutely devastating. Let's hope…

As WiMax evolves and the chips get smaller and more efficient, someone's going to build a flying apparatus that will be WiMax enabled with a really small video camera mounted on it. Something like this only on a much smaller scale.What good is that? Imagine this...Having a very small flying device, equipped with a small survellience type of camera and…

How many cars do you see now with the 2004 election bumper stickers on their backside? I see LOTS of them. They're everywhere. I was smart enough to put my Bush/Cheney sticker on my back window. Putting them on the window allows for a much easier removal.But what about those poor saps that put them on their bumpers? How many…

Oohh... I just said, "stiff" and "naughty" in one sentence. Gotta love that.Anyway, if you view life out of the right eye more than the left, you simply must go over to Cox & Forkum. They have the best editorial cartoons on planet earth. Here's their latest:I absolutely love this. I laughed and laughed and laughed when I saw this…

More on my CrispAds testing. It seems to me that this is a good way to swap traffic with other bloggers without spending hardly any cash. Let me explain. One of my ads currently running (as an advertiser) is for this blog (dansherman.com). This means other bloggers are showing my ad through their CrispAd insertion. When their visitor clicks on…

My post a few days ago about the demise of the daily newspaper and how a saavy journalist-type person can take advantage of that demise, got me thinking and researching.So, henceforth, as if I didn't have enough things to do, I will be blogging the demise of the newspaper industry. I'm calling the blog, Bye Bye Ink. The introductory entry…

I've been using CrispAds now as a publisher (see ad in this post) as well as an advertiser. I've made a whopping .46 cents so far as a publisher (thanks to the two people who have clicked on my crispads.)The amount I've made really means nothing because it's really only relative to how many people have viewed my ads. That…

This post is meant for my fellow bloggers out there. Please check out a new service I will be launching shortly at blogTshirts.com. It's not fully functional as of yet, but I'd like to get a core group of bloggers signed up and get their own blog's t-shirt up on the site before I go forward with the hard launch.Also,…

I thought I would be the first to market with this concept, but someone else beat me to it. It's called CrispAds.com and they allow you to insert text based ads in your RSS or ATOM blog feeds. (I've inserted an ad into the bottom of this post.)I think this is a marvelous idea. (Of course I think so since…

I was just listening to the radio in my garage while packaging up Santas and I heard the talker discussing the difference between sheep and goats in the experiments they were conducting on some human subjects regarding skepticism...etc. She said they called the people who were willing to be guided basically anywhere, sheep. Whereas the people who continually questioned things…

I just recently signed up for Hollywood Video's MVP program. For a set fee per month, you get to check out 3 movies at one time without paying for them. Only if they're eligible for the MVP program, of course. Which eliminates many of the latest ones. (Our store is the only store in the nation that gets it cheaper…

Just came across this over at Dane's blog. It's a business card cutter. No more hanging chad looking roughness on your home printed card edges. You can use the business card template built into any word processing software (or even design software like Publisher) to design your card and print your cards on to any paper you want. Then use…

The liberal movement in this country is like the energizer vampire. They just keep sucking and sucking and sucking and sucking the lifeblood out of our culture.They won't stop until we're all moving around like zombies with a blank stare in our eyes and absolutely no belief in our hearts.I'm so angry, I could spit. I'll let you be the…

I've been talking about this with my friends and family for a little over two years now.Daily local newspapers will be dead within our lifetime (if you're in your mid 40's or younger.)More and more news is coming out of the newspaper industry that is VERY bad for them.I have my own testimony. I used to subscribe to the Oregonian.…

I just got done reading a really interesting book called, "Replay." It's the story of a man who dies at the age of 42 (or something like that) and right after his death, he awakes again in his dorm room in college. Essentially, he relives his life over and over and over, each time dying at the very same time…

In keeping with my business concepts and ideas related to the holidays, here's one. It's a business opportunity AND a plan to build a beautiful home for next to nothing.As everyone in America knows, light shows are VERY popular during Christmas. Some people just go overboard but that's great because it gives us lazy bums something to look at and…

I love this newest idea of mine. I was driving at night recently and saw this BEAUTIFUL Christmas light display at someone's house. The house happened to be on the corner of a very busy intersection, so it's going to be seen by lots of people. Being the person I am, I started brainstorming about how I could use the…

I think it's important to know a little about the history of our holidays, here in the US. I particularly like the history behind Thanksgiving. It really speaks volumes against the backdrop of liberal organizations, such as the ACLU, attempting to remove references to God from every fabric of today's society.As much as religion-hating liberals try at all costs to…

Bob Cringely has gotten wind of one of my theories just recently and wrote about it. Here's his article and here's mine. I'm sure his idea was spontaneous, just like mine. Business idea genius isn't exclusive to me. Haha!Regardless, this is really something to keep an eye on. It bears watching, because as I said in my blog entry on…

I just got back from Frys and I'm madder than snot. I wanted to check out the new Zen Micro hard drive based MP3 player. It just came out and my Frys store had two of them. So I go to the sales geek and ask him if they have a display unit somewhere to fiddle with. Of course not!!!!!This…

Got this from Incoherent Ramblings:"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse." John Stewart Mill

Just thought you'd like to see this commercial. Incredible viral ad campaign. I'll bet this will be seen by a million people in 1 day alone, if it hasn't already.Hat tip to Gizmodo for this one.

I've already discussed an idea I had regarding the use of free political donation address databases, like this one.Well, I never got around to sending out any direct mail to these people advertising my original political t-shirts, like this one. (BTW: I made about $2000 on that shirt idea, just advertising on blogs... etc.) I wish I had because it…

Sorry about all the political posts recently. I'm extremely opinionated and since this is my blog, you get all of me... not just the benign, business related stuff.So now I'm back to helping you make some money. :-)There's a nifty site that sells really cool retro bowling shirts. I'm not really into bowling myself, but I love some of these…
