Hey hodges....

I think you should try to get a netflix banner on the 78666.com main page.

I love netflix and think that it'll put blockbuster out of buisness.
There's money to be made.
They'll pay around 8 dollars for every new member that signs up after linking from this site.

It's late..

actually u have a long way before they put any rental place out of business. Rental places offer spur of the moment, mail in dvd's do not.

Rental places still hold more clout than mail direct dvd's. Plus blockbuster will be coming out w/ it's own mail service, not to mention wal mart who has one. Walmart has a cheaper subscription and allows u to rent 4 a month.

However despite all this netflix is seeing surprising gains, even thought the forecast would suggest otherwise.


just a lil tidbit of info

we could put ads on here, but we're not in this (78666.com) for the money.. other things, we definitely are in for the money.. but we are going to limit ads on this site to local only. thanks for the tip though. I wish we had money to pay people to write some freaking articles.

i see...

Ya know.....I just have been on a netflix kick for the past week or so. Between my wife and I, there's atleast 3 people we've told that have signed up, just by word of mouth. I got to thinkin' that we should get a kick back and the only way netflix has it set up is to have banner, there is no other type of referal program.

Reasons why I like netfilx.
1. they have an outlet in Austin. Which means movies get here two days flat.

2. There is no way in hell that walmart would ever rent the movies that netflix does. From Ultimate fighting, to soft porn, to Oakie Noodling.

3. You can keep the movies as long as you want.

4. we split the 20 dollar a month fee with some friends of ours. We get the movie, watch it, give it the them and then they mail it from their house.

5. They have a program for everyone. From one movie at a time for a limited number of days, to renting 8 movies at a time. (cheapest is liike 12 bucks a month, 8 movies is like 35 bucks a month. We get 3 at a time for 20$.)

.............I think I was just having a pipe dream and thought that I could retire early, just for getting paid to tell people about netflix.
I think I'll try to get my pineapple farm going and then try the netflix buisiness.

Oh yeah, I'll write an article about skateboarding.
Support your local Pool Sharks.
Much Love,

paying for articles

you could allow people to write articles for free. it would be good in the aspect that they would have passion for what they wrote and it would be good quality too. but then on the flipside, you might be inidated with many articles. just a suggestion. i am sure people would love to write articles as hobbies.

writing articles

Well our policy is basically that if you want to write an article about something and it doesn't totally suck then we'll post it.. In fact that's always been our policy.. still waiting for that inundation of people wanting to write articles..

yea, if you want to write an article, just write one and send it in. If you don't want it to totally suck remember to put in big words like "verisimilitude" and such. And don't misspell words. like don't write "Korn Dog" no matter how funny you think it is to substitute K's for C's.

SAMPLE ARTICLE!!

Sample Article:

WHERE TO GET THE BEST KORN DOGS IN SAN MARCOS

This is a tough one because there are actually so few places to get Korn Dogs in San Marcos...yet so many.

There are pretty much two kinds of Korn Dogs:
1. Crunchy baked style
2. Mushy microwave style
And there are two kinds of people:
1. Those who only eat until the meat is gone.
2. Those who slurp on the stick until there?s nothing left of the Korn Dog but wood.

Places to get Korn Dogs
1.Sonic.
Their Korn Dogs are okay if you like em? crunchy. Some Heinz mustard or ketchup really helps these bad boyz slide down.
-yumminess: 5
-verisimilitude: 2
-easiness to eat: 7
2. HEB.
Honey glazed, cheese filled, various meats?. You can get just about whatever style of Korn Dog you want here. And then the freedom to prepare them as you wish takes them over the top. Plus you save about 57 dollars compared to buying them at a fast food restaurant.
-yumminess: varies depending upon Korn Dog style and Chef.
-verisimilitude: 9
-easiness to eat: 8

3. Chili Dog II.
A lot like the Sonic Korn Dog except made by locals so they taste a jillion times better.
-yumminess: 6
-verisimilitude: 4
-easiness to eat: 7

4. Somewhere Else?
There are probably other places to get Korn Dogs and eat them, but if you try too hard you?re missing the point. Korn Dogs will be the same breaded turd burger no matter where you go.

Choose carefully San Marcos. Korn Dog choosing is a delicate art.

(p.s. Korn Dogs are a ton better than Corn Dogs).
