What a year. Unemployed for a while, started a consulting company which opened the doors to many other networking opportunities. Some payed off very well, some are still take time to build a relationship. I launched Minecraft World Share with the intent to brush up my programming skills and kill a bit of time during my time off. The site is doing very well, 250K visitors a month and growing. It's taught me a lot on optimizationg of code, how to break a web host, and what a high traffic site needs for attention. Niche market and a solid web application lead to success quickly. I'm planning a large rewrite of the code behind to squeek a bit more performance out of the site. Plenty of irons in the fire, just waiting to see which one I can leverage to help me reach my personal goals.
