Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:

  • We have tons of content. In fact, since November 2011, I've published more than 26,000 posts on thousands of different business ideas and opportunities.
  • We don't sell much advertising. In late 2013, I realized that by selling advertising, what I was really selling was my readers. In 2014, I've already radically cut down on the number of ads and will hopefully keep cutting.

I’m a proponent of clear and simple business writing. The Plain English Campaign has developed a helpful guide to make your writing more easily undersood:

Almost anything – from leaflets and letters to legal documents – can be written in plain English without being patronising or over-simple.
  • Keep your sentences short
  • Prefer active verbs
  • Use ‘you’ and ‘we’
  • Choose words appropriate for the reader
  • Don’t be afraid to give instructions
  • Avoid nominalisations
  • Use positive language
  • Use lists where appropriate
