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.

Snail mail can be trendy too! Take a look at these newly designed letter openers. They make receiving mail fun again! Check them out, featured by Fast Company:

Paper mail may be going the way of the dodo, but thanks to some major design upgrades, letter openers are here to stay. The once-utilitarian tool has recently become a showcase for top design. That means whimsy galore — saws, propellers, a singular scissor — as well as austere designs that wouldn’t feel out of place next to your parents’ paperweights. “Almost everything I do has an edge of nostalgia to it,” says Acme Studios founder Adrian Olabuenaga, who used a retro pocketknife as inspiration for the Jack letter opener. “I wanted it to be familiar.” Indonesia-based designer Singgih Kartono drew upon his own familiarity for Areaware’s envelope opener: He modeled the mahogany and sonokeling knife after the bamboo blades local farmers use to clean their tools. “The shape is almost the same with my opener,” he says. “It’s simple and useful.” And if these letter openers never open a letter, that’s beside the point — they look good, even in the glow of a computer screen.
