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.

Old Books

Kim Bhasin:

As hard copy books go the way of the typewriter, that novelty value may be all they have left. But that might not be as bad as it sounds.

Nostalgia is very marketable. When we remember the past in a positive way, we’re able to shape the memory into a happier version of itself — and that’s a feeling we all love. It also makes us feel younger, taking us back in time.

Yes, independent bookstores are being (and will continue to be) whittled down severely, but once e-books take over, there may yet be hope on the other side for those that remain.

Of course, if old books don’t take off, people can just spray their Kindles with a Smell of Books an “aerosol e-book enhancer”.
