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.

The Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) is expressing concern that eBay has banned the sale of teacher’s guides through its online auctions, a move that could drive up the cost of instructional materials for home-schooling families.

The new eBay policy prohibits “the sale of teacher’s editions of textbooks and solutions manuals that are intended solely for use by teachers.” The online auction site says the policy is designed to prevent people from making illegal copies of the teacher’s guides. However, the ban has drawn the ire of many home educators.

Mike Smith, president of the HSLDA, says he has tried unsuccessfully to convince eBay to drop its ban and trust that home schoolers would not make illegal copies. His organization sees eBay’s new policy as a real problem, he explains, “because it’s really expensive to have to buy all new textbooks all the time.” However, eBay was unmoved, so the home-schooling group has had to come up with its own creative solution.
