For those of you who have been following this blog since the beginning, you will know that I originally set up this blog to try different “niche pursuits”. These pursuits were in reality meant to be small business ideas that I could try out to diversify my income away from just search engines ( I view the income source as truly being the traffic to my sites NOT Google adsense, Amazon Associates, or other ad networks. If the traffic stops – Im done, but if Google Adsense stops I would just move to a new ad network).
So, I brainstormed lots of different ideas and even took feedback from my readers (You!). At that point I narrowed the choices down and held a vote. The winning idea was that I build an iPhone App and document the process on the blog. Well, its been a couple of months now and I have not made much progress. And I'm blaming YOU! 🙂 You see, the feedback has been so great from all of you when I discuss building niche websites and my processes there – that I have felt like I should focus the blog on that.
I am going to continue to discuss building niche sites, but I am now going to try and squeeze in at least a video post perhaps once a week with updates on how my iPhone App is coming along. So, this is video #1 that shares where am in the process and my plans for the future. I have to warn you that the video is a bit shaky because I was actually just holding my iPhone to record this. But I think that gives it a sense of “reality”. Check out the video here. By the way, yes, I know the music is a bit quirky…I'm just trying to make it a bit more interesting!
So, in reality the point was to focus on one project for 90 days and then move onto another one. So, I have spent WAY too much time already on the iPhone app (started around May). So, I am going to commit to spend 90 days starting from today! So, I hope to have an app up and running by February 17th, 2012. Then I will start a new small niche pursuit at that point (with you input of course). I have a few other ideas already…
I would be interested in hearing your thoughts about my first “video blog”! Would you like to see more of this in the future? I think that doing videos is going to be the easiest and hopefully most interesting way for me to keep you updated on this iPhone app project.
