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.


Email is being credited with the murder of the sidewalk mailbox, joining cell phones in a plot to destroy public communication hubs.

The United States Post Office has removed 42,000 street mailboxes in the last six years, and nobody’s really noticing.

Like superheroes losing a place to change in public, some are equating the loss of the mailbox with the loss of an American cultural icon. Letter writing, perhaps like calligraphy, is becoming a lost art.

The USPS is also downsizing the number of mail carriers on staff. That doesn’t mean the Internet has killed the organization. Shipping has never been more in demand since the advent of eBay and Amazon.
