Making money with gaming knowledge

Hey everyone, I just wanted to post something because I am pretty excited. I have been gaming for decades, and it is as normal to me as breathing air to live. I have been making add-ons or mods for games since I was 12, and am 31 now. Started with simple things like Doom/Doom 2 maps (those good old .wad files you know) to re-recording and changng every sound and all music in the games. Then went on to Duke3d/Shadow Warrior, C&C, heroes of might and magic 2-3, civilizations, the sims 2 (over 5.5 million downloads of my items) and many others. Some tracks in Trials HD, maps in Far Cry's etc.. the list goes on and on.

Anyways, all the experience I have making items and using graphics software and whatnot is coming in quite useful right now. With the experience of making game add-ons and mods I have had to be pretty resourceful in some ways. This has come in handy in developing a website because my knowledge is somewhat limited, but I am very resourceful and do things differently.

I launched a website a few months ago, and it is now getting over 1K unique visitors every day now. I am not running it like a business though, even though it does make money. I am actually "playing" it like a strategy game. Thanks to Google analytics I can watch in real time what is happening and plan my moves accordingly. All the money I am making is like getting a high score, and I am trying to always increase my score. It is really quite fun. I have a couple new websites on the way and can't wait to see how they play out.

It really does remind me of a lot of strategy sim games, sorta like game dev story, or even lemonade stand. I hope to win this game one day. Winning will mean I don't have to get a job or go to work. I can stay at home playing video games all day, while I have automated websites conjuring money out of thin air like a powerful wizard. Wish me luck ;)
