The last 24 hours have completely changed my way of thinking. Lots of incredible things have happened, that have made me think hard about what I'm trying to do with the blog.
I'd been working on a Wordpress layout for the blog for ages, (which is no where near ready!) and I thought that I'd launch a fund so that this blog could move over to Wordpress. I was expecting nothing. Maybe at most $5, or $10. Guess what? $1418 and counting! That's $401 just while I was sleeping.
I'd like to clear a few things up in this blog post though.
I astonished that tonnes of you think I'm a fraud... A fake. You say I'm not 12! I'm not sure whether to feel pleased at this or angry. I work my butt off, and what do I get? People claiming my Dad wrote all this stuff. Wanna know something? My Dad doesn't even know what Web 2.0 is! That said, neither do I... Does Web 2.0 have a definitive definition? Okay, he knows about technology, computers, programming and stuff, but I write everything on this blog. I don't have help writing it. This is all unique content written by me. This is not some "well planned scheme", a "scam", a "". I can't actually say I blame most of you though. I too would be suspicious.
Any excess money, will simply go into any extra costs we may run into. We'd like to buy ourselves some spiffy monitoring software called mint, and we'd like to hold a few competitions on the site, offering monetary prizes, if there's any money left over at the end.
So why am I not paying with it with my money I earn from blogging on other sites? With the money I earn from working at Profy, and a few other blogs, I'm savign up to buy myself a good new PC. They're not cheap you know! Anyhow, this blog isn't just mine anyway, even if I have written 99.6% of the posts here.
Any more questions? This might be suicidal, but here is my e-mail: wilki . david [at] googlemail . com - and please... No spam. No flame rants (I woke up to 64 this morning... Thanks you guys!)
In other news, the leaderboards have been updated. More coming soon. I'll publish them too.
