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.

issn-logo.gifRobert Raketty has had his request for an ISSN number for his weblog, Seattle Blogger, put on hold while the International ISSN Network decides whether or not to give ISSN numbers to weblogs.

From the rejection letter:

The assignment of ISSN to Weblogs and/or sites utilizing Weblog technology is under discussion by the International ISSN Network. One issue relates to the scope of ISSN coverage. Another very important issue is whether the limited staff resources of ISSN centers worldwide can accomodate the volume of additional requests. A working group is currently examining these issues as part of the ISSN revision process.

This can’t be right! It sounds to me like they want to exclude a huge revolution in publishing just because they don’t have enough manpower.
