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.

Clay McDaniel over at Mashable has an interesting look at hot social shopping trends.

A recent study from Burst Media found that 85% of consumers will shop online this holiday season, and the majority of those people will continue to shop online throughout the year.

Now that online shopping is widespread – just try finding someone who has never purchased an item on the Internet these days – it’s about to enter whole new dimension: social shopping.
