Any big customers yet, Palmer?

Does Santa Claus count as big? Seriously now, the site is off like a herd of turtles. I'm not promoting it at all yet until I have my merchant account set up to accept credit cards. Hopefully that will be approved next week. Getting rich is a slow process. My biggest news this week is I'm finally in a major search engine, type in yourwebbuddy here... (for some reason produces no hits, weird)

I submitted my site to them April 15th. It takes forever to get in. From what I understand, Yahoo won't even add you anymore unless you use their "Business Express" service for $199 and even then there is no guarantee you will be listed.

I have several good ideas to drum up hits, I just want to be able to accept credit cards before I trudge forward. I think I might offer a free generic start page for the cheapskates, then make money through ad banners. Hopefully some will upgrade to a personalized paid version.

Sorry for rambling...
