I originally wrote an article about how this hobby changed my life on my network website. I took it a step further recently and decided to start building a niche website using the images and microscopic examinations of the coins and cash I come across in circulation. Aside from sharing my photos and videos, I'm also sharing the information along with the links (crediting the appropriate sources) I find during my research.
I joined this group so that I can receive feedback on my inquiries.
This hobby helps me keep money in my possession until after I've examined it. It's amazing to me how much my savings has increased in just the last month from my decision to hold onto coins and examine them before dumping them into the coin counting machine at the bank. I arrange for those to be deposited into a savings account while I hold onto the unique ones.
I've made no sales of my finds online... yet, but selling my collections is not the ultimate goal. I'd rather my website become accurately informative, and attractive as a monetized digital property in the long run.
Because I also invest in advertising, traffic is bound to increase to my site, and the sites linked from my site should benefit also.
I like it when everyone benefits. Don't you? It may not be an easy road to travel, but it's not impossible.
Thanks for listening! I greatly appreciate this group!
