websites are dying

Websites Are No Longer The Hive. The Bee Is The Hive.

I built my first website around 1999/ 2000. It was a website for and by talented lady comics, for other lady comics. It was successful in traffic, but it made no money. Wait, that’s not totally true. I couldn’t figure out how to get it to make money.  That’s closer to the truth.

With hindsight being 20/20, I should’ve turned it into a Splitsider or a Cracked and monetized through google ads and then eventually sponsored stories, the way Buzzfeed does.  Or I could’ve tapped into Mediabistro’s original business model and monetized through classifieds.  However, I didn’t have that foresight then. I do now, though.

Using that knowledge, I’ve monetized big sites for big brands.

But…

Something keeps me hesitant on building out further sites.
