I'm going to start a directory and get rich...

That's what I hear every day in forums. All about how someone has this great idea on starting a directory and then is gonna charge for submissions and make tons of money for doing nothing.

How foolish they are. Today we added 127 websites to the directory, and guess how many of thoese were paid submissions? Well, let's just say not as many as people think. Now considering we've spent probably over $20,000 in the past 2 months on advertising, that's not exactly raking in the dough.

It just kinda makes me sick to see new directories spring up, then spend no money on promotion, and slap adsense on it to make some cash. This is what gives directories bad names.

Anyway, this was my friendly public service announcement for the day. :)
