This is about as ridiculous an idea as one can have, but it came to me in a dream last night.. one that I actually am able to remember.
I have this idea in my head that with proper funding and motivation, I could do great things. Or at least little things that will make a small enough difference to make the world a better place. And that's the goal that I've set for myself for this lifetime – I don't care about accumulating some insane amount of money and wealth, or building some sort of legacy and having my name mentioned in some semi-important context – I just want to go out knowing that I've done something to improve things.
So, the dream: I need a few people that have enough money to make a small investment in me. In my ideas. I'm not sure of the exact numbers yet, but probably something like a $4k investment with a payback of 1% of any profits (after living expenses) or $5k after 5 years, whichever is more. It'd be more like a loan than an investment, with at least a 25% return after 5 years. It's not just the money though, the idea is also that someone investing that sort of cash into anything would be interested in what sort of progress is being made – which seems like it would be a pretty good motivator.
I've been noticing a slight increase in readers lately, mostly due to google suddenly liking me a lot more. Some of my recent posts have been coming up as results for some interesting search terms, which the post they lead to has slightly more than nothing to actually do with. In order to make this blog a bit more useful, I think I'm going to start taking the most common searches and building pages that are actually useful for someone searching for those topics. I'm thinking of doing that on a weekly basis, so if you really want to throw me off, try to find the most obscure/bizarre searches that lead to my posts.
