The winner contacted me before the deadline! He slipped in a couple of hours before I was about to re-pick a contest winner. The release forms are being sent out and then I can announce the name of the winner, once they are returned to me.

Also we need help from you. What do you want us to give away next? Leave a comment and let us know.

The official launch of this site was February 11th 2008. We marked the launch of the site with a free ipod contest. Itâ€™s still going on so be sure to sign up and with a Free 60 GB video ipod.
I want to be very open about this site. I will disclose traffic numbers, revenue goals and actual revenue creation, etc… Very few sites will be this open about their sites. I want this to be a community site so I feel this is the necessary path to take.
The site has been live for one full week!! So, prior to the sites official launch almost all stats/numbers where at zero. The site would get (maybe) one visitor every other day. I assume they were just typing in the domain name.
On with the numbersâ€¦

Over all, not a bad first week. This week I will continue to promote the site and find new sources of traffic.
I am committed to doing a monthly â€œsite statsâ€ wrap up but not a weekly one. I may or may not do one next week. Stay tuned.

The idea for this site was born several years ago, But with no action plan the domain would sit idle.
The official launch of this site will be 2-11-08.
