Journal Journal: PHP Development - phpMyEdit, To License or Not 3

I just finished my latest database driven web app for a customer. This time I decided to go with something that I thought would be easier than coding it all manually... Was I ever in for a learning experience. This time I used phpMyEdit as the base for my tables. There is a steep learning curve for phpMyEdit but, once you get the hang of it, if you have any experience with should be alright. The documentation is sparse and the dev sites load really slow,. The big question for my brothers at /* is can I charge for my work when I have massively customized phpMyEdit?

Journal Journal: Marketing to myself but nobody else?

Recently I came into some money that I could afford to invest so, being a coder I had visions of grandeur and decided to make a dream come true. I had been testing out some php/mysql code and decided to buy the real thing from someone else and start a website. Well, here is where the problem lies, making the code changes was the easy part, setting up a merchant gateway was easy. The thing that I have discovered is that I have no idea of how to create traffic, advertising I guess you might call it. Google is setup, as well as all the search engines and I do have a little credit with adwords but, I really don't want to show ads on my site. I have alot of money invested in this. I think that I just need to find a little direction. Any /.'s have unique ideas that can help steer me in the right direction?
