not sure if you've heard of associatedc0ntent.com (most likely you have) but it's a directory that pays $1.50 per 1000 views your articles get. Much like twitter, the more followers you have the more attention you get. If somebody designed a tool to follow/subscribe to other ass0ciatedc0ntent contributors you could probably make some serious money.... I know what you're thinking, why not use twitter or other social networks that already have tools like these - thing is - well I'll put it like this 10,000 twitter followers = probably around 300 max daily views 10,000 ac subscribers = maybe 3000 views daily no exaggeration - most of your followers will views your articles and comment them just so you return the favor to their articles... I don't know this is just an idea that maybe somebody could look into it. Sorry if it's a dumb idea.
