Aaron,
That is a fantastic post. After reading your seobook and this post, I figured out why my handcellphone.com website just makes about 15 dollars a day after 6 months since launched. Like average Joes, i was into blogging just because to make some extra cash without considering what web users want.
I think I should create better web app. for users instead of creating blogs for SEARCH ENGINE from todays onwards.

I'm in total agreement with his philosophy, even with a limited budget you can do what you want with the tools you have and create your own unique spin on the internet... "Imagination is everything, it is the preview to the future" -Albert Einstien
