My psych-nurse friend calls it OCD…

Lately I’ve been contemplating the idea of starting a web hosting business. Running my own websites has become a fulfilling hobby, and the money I’ve been making from affiliate programs is pretty nice. I’m intrigued by the challenge of running a home business, and I’m confident that I have the technical skills and experience to do it. The start-up costs are low enough for me to be able to finance the business myself.

But, the webhosting market is quite crowded, and it would take a lot of work in the beginning, for little money. There’s always a chance of failure. I’m working on a business plan and doing a lot of research, but I’m not rushing into this, if I even do it at all.

I have this tendency of taking intense interest in a subject (whether it be poker, blogging or webhosting) and then absorbing myself in learning as much as I can about it, to the (temporary) exclusion of everything else. (Thus the lack of updates in the last few days). This’ll go on for a while, and eventually I’ll lose interest in it altogether.

Spring Break is this coming week, and I have the next nine days with nothing to do. I should have enough money saved up now to buy a (cheap) car within the next week.
