Happy 5th Birthday! - 5 Cents

Happy 5th birthday, DimeBrothers.com!


I registered the site at the end of September, 2006, and wrote the first article by the end of October. We did a decent job of writing articles through the first year, and since then weve relied much more on blurbs and recycled videos rather than full articles.


In the last year Ive moved a few more links over to the sidebar, moved all the messages over to the main article portion of the website and labeled them as 2 cents (no more Messages tab). Now theyre searchable from our search tab (although I know ideally wed have a search box on every page, which Google does offer, but enh).


Ive cleaned up the categories a little bit, although its hard to box in some of the articles. Ive added the AdSense ads back in so we can make a few cents (as much as a dime!) a year. Theyre doing much better at showing decent ads rather than those awful spammy-feeling kinds of ads (follow this one rule, anyone? Or any insurance ad that says it can get you covered for less than 10 bucks (an hour!).)


There are still some code things behind the scenes I (or Steve!) could fix, but nothings urgent. Were in a good place with the site. We even transferred hosts from iPower (who I do not recommend) to WebHostingPad, which has been good to us by comparison. It was an extremely difficult transfer so I wrote an article about it.


Now if only we could find a brother who would write more frequently!


Happy fifth, Dime Brothers, and heres to a good 6th.

Fix this site!
How 'bout adding an "Internet" category?

Probably not, although I've been tempted. Anything associated with the internet will often fall under "This Site," "Product Review," "Fun," "How To," or "Finance/Business." I'm torn about all sorts of category options. Oh well.
