Starting up a new website is a huge topic, a colossal area that has been covered many times by more experienced people than I, but in the light of Squidoo’s changes, I wanted to help people become more independent of Web 2.0 sites, because I do not want to go through all this again, either.

I just got back from a week visiting family in Skeffling, East Yorkshire, so missed out on seeing the post-Thanksgiving sales as they come in.

The more experienced internet marketers say the summer is not the best for online income.  Internet traffic slows as people head outside for the summer sunshine.  So I am thrilled with my June earnings.
