This sounds like such a great idea. There have been a couple of great examples recently. Some guy started with a Red Paperclip
and turned it into a house in less than a year by swapping it for stuff.
Another guy created the Million Dollar web page, the idea was you could by a pixel for a dollar, buy a bunch of pixels and you could put your ad on his page.
The guy did it! He made his million dollars.
So I have decided that this is the new 'growth' area. Making money by doing stupid things. I had a great plan, I was gonna put a 'PayPal' link on my blog, and ask everyone to send me a buck. I am fed up with being poor, this seemed like a great scheme. Hell, if I could get everyone to send me a buck, I'd be all set! I am not greedy, my plan was just to make enough to buy a case of beer!
I was even planning on having a $ counter on the page, so everyone could keep up with the amount. Alas it is not as easy a scheme as it sounds.
It seems that PayPal charges for its services, if I was reading the info correctly they want 55 cents + 2.9% for each transaction. Bummer! For each dollar someone sends I'd get about 43 cents. Thats unreasonable.
Oh well, its back to the drawing board! hahahahah
