I didn’t mean to be gone so long…it’s been a busy summer. I’ve completed three major work projects, one which expanded our business and network to Hong Kong. Our oldest daughter moved back home to attend college locally, so we’ve been doing some room re-arranging. Oh, and we just returned from an amazing 2 week vacation in Ireland!
We are looking at purchasing another apartment building (the rental market here is booming!) and I’ve been working on financing options that tie up the least amount of our own money.
I think I finally figured out what I want to do with myself…and it ain’t slaving over Cisco equipment the rest of my days! I started a “niche” info website a few months back and it is finally earning enough money to pay for my hosting fees and then some. I am excited to see my traffic grow every month and I am trying to add a few pages a week.
I love it. I really enjoy building my website and can see myself doing a few more. The best part is that I can work at home in my spare time. It may take me a few years to build up enough income from my sites to be able to quit my “work at home” day job, but I am not going to let that discourage me! I am trying to take it slow (my day job is stressful enough, thank you!) and learn as much as I can about information publishing.
My first site is a guide about Naperville, IL. I know there are other “travel guide” sites on Naperville, but they are just generic directories that lack a personal touch. I want to offer my visitors a taste of what Naperville is like through my personal experiences and photos.
