Men: 2 years ago my cousin and I were looking into opening one of those "pop up" halloween stores. We were going to rent out a store for a month, and just stock it with halloween costumes. They open up in Brooklyn every year, and the line is usually out the door. Costume stores make 95% of their sales in October.
So, I would like to form a webpage selling halloween costumes. I have a cosignment contract with "spirit halloween" and amazon associates. Average commission with spirit is about $6, and with amazon its around $2. Looking for someone to help me design the page (I suck), and then just promote the crap out of it for October. I will put up the money for hosting, and we will split the profits on Nov 1. Anyone interested? Would love to have the page up by Oct 1 and start making some money.....email@example.com
Oh boy what a disaster. I DEFINATELY should have hired somebody. I was reading Tynans post about strengths and weaknesses, and I made a comment about forgetting about your weaknesses and focusing on your strengths. My weakness is any type of programming, I am a business man by trade.
First of all, I opened a cosignment agreement with spirit halloween through commission junction.com. I got approved pretty quickly, but then the links werent working. I called them on the phone and they said its a "known issue". The 2nd problem was when I used godaddy.com as a host, but I purchased the wrong package. I also called them on the phone and got that straightened out. Then I started trying to adust the html coding, and my freakin wordpress page wouldn't refresh until the next morning.
So pretty much now I am just showing spriit halloween and amazon costume ads on my main blog http://thecaptainpower.blogspot.com If anyone wants to take over this project you can have it. I registered the domain name and I have hosting for a month.
I am dieing here....I have a domain, http://ThehalloweenNinja.com Now I am floating around in HTML hell....Who is going to help me???? Trying to add a Ninja image to the title with no success...
Okay.. here's my suggestion if you haven't found a suitable partner yet. Hire someone to do the work for you. Perhaps from another country. Then, keep all the profits. Good luck! BTW, why do you start off most of your posts addressing, "Men?" I hope it's some kind of a NYC unisex term, like "guys" is in most parts of the country (and the world.) If you really mean, men, that's errr.... well, you know.

I wrote out this entire post before, and then the computer crashed and I lost it all, so I haven't felt like working on it. Finally, I'm biting the bullet and starting over :
ATTENTION ALL FELLOW WATCHERS!
It is my pleasure to announce something big that I have thought up for you all! Since it is the ever-so-looked-forward to month of the year, October, I am going to do something that fits the mood. October is the month of Halloween, candy, bonfires, leaves changing colors, slutty costumes, and scary movies. The latter is what my attention is going to be focused on; well and the occasional skimpy outfit.
Instead of watching just a couple of scary movies (I've decided to call them scaries) and doing a review, I am actually going to watch EVERY scary movie that I can think of and drop a list of my top flicks. Now I will not be able to do this on my own. I need your comments and suggestions because I am destined to forget something. Keep in mind that I am going to watch sequels as well and rate each movie individually.
