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.

Bubble wrap is turning 50 this year and it’s as popular as ever, reports The Newark Star Ledger.

There are at least 250 Facebook groups dedicated to the packing staple cum low-tech stress reliever, a turn of events that would’ve surprised its inventors, who set out to create a textured wallpaper in the late 1950s.

Legend has it that bubble wrap was inspired on a descent into Newark Airport when one of the inventors noticed the “fluffy clouds that seemed to cushion the plane’s descent.”
