Just ask any real webmaster that runs any real tech website, they will agree with most of the things I have commented on in this article. While I'm only 17 and still attend my final year of high school, the management of most regular size tech websites don't really differ that much from someone who runs their tech website full time as a job and source of income, they just get more time to spend updating and so on, that latter being much more preferable. Everything mentioned in this article is exactly as it happens, I hope it has given you an understanding on the good and bad points of running your own tech website. So you may be wanting advice on starting your own tech website? don't do it just because of the money and free hardware. You need to do it because you want to do it, you won't do well if you don't want to do it and will probably fail and find your website not getting much traffic, just like all things in life. Also remember there are a LOT of tech websites around the world, if you start another one, it's going to be hard to generate traffic and obtain regular visitors, let alone get a good name for yourself. Also remember that you do not necessarily have to be a "geek" or "nerd" to run a tech website and never leave your house because you are so tired up with your site, even if I made it sound that way throughout this article. I usually go out Saturday nights to party with friends, I even play tennis Saturday afternoons . Although, some nights I have been forced to stay home to complete crucial new content for TweakTown, it's something you have to deal with...you've heard it before, "take the good with the bad." I hoped you enjoyed this quick insight to running your own tech website, feel free to comment in the forums!
