I am finally writing a blog and have decided to write one telling how all my sites started. It all started in 2000-01 when I discovered msn chat rooms. There they had a Wisconsin chat room called Wisconsin Hideaway. I jumped into the mix of things and started meeting people from Wisconsin which I am from. After a month or two I decided to create another chat room mainly because the hosts that ran Wisconsin hideaway sucked and booted for bad reasons. It didn't take very long and the room which I called Wisconsin Naughty But Nice became number 1. We had camping parties, grill outs, bar parties and etc. It started to become my second home. My place to vent, meet cool people and just overall a good time. We stayed the number 1 Wisconsin chat room until MSN started to charge its members to chat. Now at the time I thought the 20.00 a year wasn't a bad price. Unfortunately everyone else did. So at this time our user base was cut in half because of the msn change. But we carried on any ways, up until one day I was like I wonder how difficult it would be to created a chat site. So at this point I started to investigate. I looked everywhere and there wasn't really any options and the costs were ridiculous. At this point I was like forget it...not going to pay all this money for what I called a not very good chat room. One day a buddy of mine indroduced me to web designed with php experience and I discussed my ideas with him and my all in all vision. From this point fwd Wisconsin chat now started. Thats exactly what started it all was the Wisconsin chat. Now I was thinking this wasn't going to cost to much; boy was i wrong. I spent thousands getting what most of you know as the lobby created. I wanted something different, something that didn't require a download to enter. Anyways thousands of dollars later out came the chat room. The only chat room of its kind. OK so here I am with Wisconsinchatnow being number 1 under all wisconsin chat keywords in google and the site was still dead. Boy was I thinking what a waste. So I went back to the drawing board and decided why make this just a wisconsin chat, why not make this a world chat or better yet a usa chat. Not alot of people were for this idea. They wanted to keep it just a wisconsin chat. I decided against it and purchased the domain UsaChatNow.com. That was the easy part. The hard part was getting it out there and getting people to know about it. Now this was the part that took my investment from between 10,000 to 12,000 up to 25,000 to 30,000 thousand dollars. Now most of you are prolly thinking screw that but I am what you call an overachiever. If you say it cant be done I will do it anyways. I am about doing what most would say would be impossible. So anyways I'm spending thousands on advertising to get the word out for UsaChatNow.com and another idea came to mind. I wanted cams and audio. I wanted more then just a music chat. So I searched and searched and searched and finally came up with the cam chat that most of you know as CamChatNow. What a great Idea it turned out to be. The chat room is very smooth and the cams are crisp. Its a favorite among the users. Now as most of you already know the site is very popular. We have thousands of users and we are ranking number 1 on google. All in all it has paid off. I have met some very wonderful people in the mix of all this. One thing is though I have been asked time and time again if I had to do this all over would you? The answer is NO. Why do you ask? Well when i first started off in this I was thinking the most this idea and vision was going to cost me would anywhere from 300 to 600 dollars... HA. I say all in all I have invested over 35,000 in the sites.I am thinking that price answers the ?'s as to why I wouldn't. All in all I am glad I did it and wouldn't trade it for anything. This site has great people. And always know this I will never charge any of you for any of the services I offer. That is my promise to you P.S. The reason I did not mention Voice chat is because it is to new to be a part of the story.
