Post I'm always thinking about how to make money on the Internet!!

A few years ago I created my first website. It was a site with information about my birthplace, Curacao. I created this site to inform people about this beautiful little island. After that I created some other websites. Creating websites became a hobby and I enjoyed creating and updating all my sites! It didn't matter that my tracker showed that I only received 5 visitors a day! But that all changed when I received my first check for $36.89. So it was true what they were saying, you can make money on the Internet!! Creating websites was no longer a hobby, but business. I removed all websites that were not receiving enough visitors and I will only create a site if I think that it will get a descent amount of visitors. When I'm at work I'm always thinking about how to make more money on the Internet, when I'm at home I'm ALWAYS behind my computer. I don't have time for my girlfriend or daughter any more (you should hear them complain!). I don't call or go out with my friends anymore, I check my stats at ValueClick more than twice a day so that I know how my sites are doing! I don't want to go on vacation because they don't have any computer in the hotel rooms!

What is wrong with me?? Am I addicted to Internet??

Yeah it sounds like you're pretty much hooked.

I don't know anyone who would put the internet first before family. So if your house was burning down, you would save your puter before your sister? http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif

Heehee denasio,

I am going to Singapore for one week trip next week w/o laptop but I am not afraid of anything. But I do understand. It's not a hobby anymore. It's serious business which brings you handsome money!

denasio, first lose the daughter and girlfriend. They're not gonna incrase your click through ratio, and they just waste bandwidth.

Uhh, nevermind, that didn't make sense.

You only check your stats TWO times a day? Can't possibly be hooked then, I check mine 2 - 3 times an hour and I don't consider myself to be addicted, YET http://geekvillage.com/ubb/tongue.gif. I agree with the laptop thing though, and a cellular style modem, those sound bad *** ...
