    browsing through the posts - mostly ads of domains for sale.. a bit boring ;)

    I'm curious, what sites have you developed as a side project? maybe some abandoned ones? .. it doesn't matter if it doesn't get much traffic :D :D .. as long as it isn't another blog around some keywords.

    few mine:
    artforweb.co.uk (abandoned cc0 photo site) .. brrr.. a horrible domains :D :D
    outlived.co.uk - classifieds (go there 1x week just to have a look what is going on, usually the same stuff over and over)
    zenzoforum.com (testing a $zenzo community)

    so, what is yours?

    I know a guy who had a good business selling a range of these on Amazon - he was doing $10-15k a month at the peak, but that was a couple of years ago, so don't know where he's up to now :)

    Hey Helmuts,
    good thread to start :)
    please share, does your artforweb site generate any revenue?
    - my late father-in-law was a pro photographer who has left in the region of 25k images as slides, prints and negatives in boxes for his family - and I have no idea what to do with them...

    - was thinking to start to sort thru them and try some on istock or Alamy...

    exactly my case as well, only a guy I know is making around £5k/month on eBay with these.

    good business!

    :) it doesn't make any profit - an occasional G Ads click and that's it :) .. had much more photos there - site was hacked, I didn't take timely action to restore it from a backup, and at some point just recreated all and reuploaded 1/10 of photos. .. just a hobby site :)

    Haha, definitely not me, Hellmuts. A very successful player who went from being an amateur who did well in my series, to winning millions in pro events. A good story.

    I'm about to embark on a new project, with a lead generation website

    Would welcome ideas / examples / themes of what's currently working on a wordpress platform...

    What would you do with an EMD for a specialist service?
