I realize it's been a long time since I've said anything on this blog, so I wanted to touch base and give everyone some results and news...
A few years ago, I was picked for a free SBI web site from Dollar Strecher. I was given a free year of service, a training class, and support from SBI to create a new web site. I created Food-Safety-and-You.com which I commented and blogged on for a few weeks.
Now, a few years later, food-safety-and-you.com is still up and growing. To be compeltely honest, I had to put it on the shelf for about a year and just watched it grow. Currently, I have about 5,000 visitors each month to the site, rising a little bit more during certain holiday months (like Easter and Thanksgiving). I have about 30 different sites linking in to the site, many where I've shared links (meaning that I linked to thier site and they linked to mine).
Is it making a ton of money? Not really what I hoped, but it is still there. There is still potential that I will be focusing on.
However, I wanted to bring to light a new SBI site that I'm working on... www.cooking-substitutions.com. It was created with the thought process "Help, I'm out of ______" when cooking and need to know what you can substitute. It could be a life changer for people who are looking to go with vegeratian substitutes or low-fat/healthy options as well.
If you want to check out my new site, www.cooking-substitutions.com, or check out my old site, Food-Safety-and-You.com, I would love to hear your feedback. Or if you have any tips that you would like me to explore for you, I would love to hear from you!
To the Dollar Strecher community - thank you very much for everyone's tips, thoughts and money-saving ideas - you all have saved me a lot of money over the years!
