Wanderings

Anything you dream is fiction,
and anything you accomplish is science,
the whole history of mankind is nothing but science fiction.

Free Name A Star rewrite

I wrote the FreeNameAStar.com site about a year and a half ago. When I wrote it, I figured that 15,000 stars would last me three or four years. I did not anticipate how popular the site turned out to be. Friday I was getting 100 new star registrations a day. I ran out of stars over the weekend.

I finished the rewrite today and I am waiting for new registrations, but I am not seeing any. I tested it as best I can. I cannot test the PayPal payment for extras. I expect that I will be making a few refunds soon.

The new system allows a user to select a Zodiac House and north or south hemisphere. I am charging $4 for astrological sign, and I have no qualms about taking money from people who believe in Astrology. I think that I might bump that up to $6 after thanksgiving if it turns out to be popular.

The site makes about $100 a month right now, but with the astrology option it might go up another $100. In December I get a bump in traffic so I could make $500. The other big month is February with Valentine’s day.
