For some odd reason that I forgot a long time ago. I made a pile of community directories.
Adding a site of the day program is an easy way to assure that there is fresh content on the sites. Days pretty much change on their own accord. So I can select a large number of sites and let the natural progression of time show a different SoD each day.
Writing a pithy comment program with each site is a big hassle. My big hope was that if people saw they were site of the day, they might look more favorably on the community web sites.
Anyway, I decided to extend the site of the day program with a store of the day. Being blunt, the store of the day program is an attempt to monetize the site of the day program. The problem is that I just don't have the cut throat instinct to promote those stores apt to actual paying me cash. I only want to promote stores I like. It will be interesting to see how this initiative fares.
