Hey Shane have u considered open sourcing it? Removing your paypal creds, of course. Maybe the community can help you grow it quickly..

Only you'd have the power of pushing changes live.

hi Jason,

If by UGC you mean user generated content, then yes it is. I've been building web applications for a number of years now, but I think its time for me to build something and look to promote it. That's really the goal. I use to have a high traffic application back when facebook initially released its like button. Its was kind of like a simple quotation site, where people could add quotes and when someone clicked the like button under the quote, a link would be sent to all his/her friends. It grew like wildfire and within a couple of days I was making $1000 plus a day with adsense. Im kinda missing those days of making money, so that's my real goal right now. Partnering with someone with a passion for promoting online is another goal.

Hey Shane,
I think this is good.  I agree about the functional application over pretty ones, but I also think people want some bells and whistles...surely that can come down the line.  What data source are you using to show data?  Is it all UGC created on your site?

Keep up the good work.  Whats to come in the future for this?
THanks,
Jason

Thanks for the feedback Nathaniel,

I used PHP, MySql, Javascript/JQuery to build the site. I don't usually use any frameworks except for a little bit of JQuery. Not really a fan of twitter bootstrap either. I have always preferred building functional web applications instead of pretty ones. I think most of the time people just want to use simple, functional products online

Hey Shane,

Good job with what you've done so far. I was wondering what language/framework did you use to build this website? And have you considered using twitter bootstrap to make the site more visually pleasing?

Built this business oriented jobs board. It has categories for jobs, resumes, startup ideas, quick gigs and local businesses. It's pay to post using Paypal. Would love to get some feedback from the group. Thanks
