Why not start doing it small time? If you're already doing it as a hobby (and rather successfully) why not turn it into a hobby that can make abit of money? Worth a shot.

Ok this is really odd and slightly disturbing - am still yet to figger out the modus operandi here...

Just in the last half hour I've got 5 emails to various (some random) AE addresses from other various addresses (some with a .ph domain), all with "best regards" in the subject, and the body is simply an inch thick random bar of colour with a random colour written over it.

BIZ.... ARRE.... :confused:

eg.

Got a phone call from some guy today talking about promoting AE and said "front page of google" several times, it was such a low-end sales speile that I didn't even realise he was trying to sell me something for a couple minutes!  Basically it was the kind of "I know the magic formula to get you listed on google" which would be aimed at some complete novice to the internet - it's only when he said for $xxx I can get you on "the front page of google" for 30 different keywords that I clicked what he was trying to do - all he meant was he was trying to become my campaign manager for Google Adwords.

Thanks - I think I've got it covered! :cool:
