Welcome to the inaugural post on the website that will track my progress towards becoming a Dot Com Mogul, as well as serve as a general area for me to discuss topics that I find interesting.
After following the websites of John Chow and Stephen Fung, both Dot Com Moguls in their own right, I realized that I had to have a website using my own name as the domain.
Right now I have only had time to get the bare-bones site up and running. In the coming days, I will be adding the “standard” WordPress plugins that many blog owners are using as well as a few of my personal favorites.
Please sit back, strap it down and enjoy the ride.

Stay In The Loop!

Thanks for the congrats and welcome Leo! Seeing all of you guys with your sites has provided me the inspiration to get started on my own site. It should be fun.

Welcome to the blogospere! I really think you should ad the MyAvatars plugin and let people know who’s commenting – it seems to be another “standard” plugin!

Thanks Saman! I’ll certainly have to look into that plugin for this site as it does seem it is becoming a common plugin on many sites.

Oooh, nice plug-in!

You should implement it as well Leo!

I tried to grab it and install it over lunch today but was having issues accessing it from work. I’ll have to install it tonight.

Saman Sadeghi March 13, 2007 at 4:16 pm

Cool, let me know if I can help!

Saman, thanks for the offer of help but I think I have everything working with the plugin now.
