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.

A little piece of history has been placed up for auction recently. It is a letter from Alexander Graham Bell to his father, with a drawing of his plans for the telephone.

Bell writes in the letter, postmarked from Washington DC, on December 30, to his parents that he is ‘quite troubled by your account of the lightning accident at Tutelo Heights. The accident shows that the earth terminals of your telephone line are defective for the current found a shorter path to the ground through two of your poles than by the proper path’.

And he goes on to draw a remarkable diagram – two telephones – showing the correct mechanical assemblage to ensure proper function and, above all, safety.
