    LOL, that's pretty funny actually. My first domain name was buyyourgadgets. I never did anything with it, but while tinkering with web design I made a subdomain, hotactress. It's still going, and it brings in more than $70.00 per month and has over 75 PR3 and PR4 pages. Soon I'm going to begin a link selling campaign on hot actress.

    my first domain/website was www.gamesareus.com , I think I paid about £250 for it, domain names were expensive in those days, I think it was in 1998. I am not interested in games any more but I will continue to keep that domain online just for fund and the fact that it bring me about $70 or so in advert revenue from links placed on it.

    My first site ever was http://www.fugly-or-not.com/
    An image rating site, I just loaded the link and it seems to have a PR2.
    The site has been expired for a couple months i believe.
    It May be worth registering since it has a year worth of trust with google.

    I actually at first wanted it to be a HUMAN image rating site.
    I changed my mind fast and made it a Pit Bull Image rating site and ended up getting close to 600 active users.
    I let is expire and registered www.pitbull-pictures.net and www.talkpitbulls.com

    I plan on making pitbull-pictures another image rating site like fugly was.

    I still haven't found any time to do anything with pitbull-pictures.net but talkpitbulls.com is done and going strong.

    How does the bad press on Pit Bull's affect your site?

    It dont really, If anything it brings people in. You would be surprised how many American Pit Bull Terrier Owners there are. The media has tried to paint a bad image toward the breed.
    It all boils down to crappy owners, if it wasn't for them then the breed would not be in the media spot light all of the time.

    Pit Bulls are not for everyone.
    Like they say

    "Ban the deed not the breed!"

    I suppose in a way you could compare them to Teenagers.
    Bad parents/bad owners
    Good parents/good owners.

    Either way the result is the same.

    Hey, i have two dating sites that im very proud of.
    I know that they are going to take off as well. It takes a long time to get into that market but i have found myself knocking on the front door within 7 months.
    My brain has grown as well figuring out how to get my site seen.
    If its not a challenge why even try to be a webmaster?
