What’s FAT Stacks Blog all about?
The lion’s share of this blog outlines what I do to make money with various niche blogs. These blogs are in run-of-the-mill niches… not the “make money online” or “internet marketing” niches.
You can see a real-life example of one of my niche sites here.

Fat Stacks is all about launching successful blogs… at least the way that works for me.
fatstacksblog.com also covers topics on being an entrepreneur, running a business, software, technology and pretty much anything having to do with digital entrepreneurship.
Who is this guy that likes Breaking Bad a bit too much?
I’ve been around the block working online for a few years in a number of niches. I love publishing niche sites. In 2009 the niche site concept appealed to me instantly.
That’s what I do… I publish informational and entertaining niche sites that generate revenue from ads and product promotion. It’s the online magazine model and I love it.
This blog shares what I do to build successful, popular and profitable niche sites.
While I make money from Fat Stacks, the lion’s share of my revenue is from other niche sites not related to the “how to make money online” or “entrepreneur-related” niches.
I publish 16 other niche websites, 8 of which I feature in income reports.
What I share on this blog is how to make money in all kinds of niches. It’s based on my real portfolio of sites. In other words, Fat Stacks isn’t my only site.
In fact, FAT Stacks is just a side thing. It’s a fun project. I think it will make money (it better), but what I teach is based on creating killer magazine style sites in all kinds of niches as well as smaller, high-value niche blogs.
When I like something, I tend to push the limits. I loved school and ended up stringing together a few degrees including B.A. (philosophy major) followed by an MBA and then a law degree in Canada.
After finishing my law degree, I practiced law for 6 years in British Columbia, Canada. I focused on criminal defence and personal injury law (litigation), both of which I enjoyed.
This was when the Web was starting to grow quite fast. The law firm I was at needed a website (many lawyers were just launching sites at the time). I was tasked with hiring a web developer to get us online.
I found a very good company who knocked it out of the park. They were progressive at the time with SEO and blogging. The website they built included a blogging platform, which was novel at the time. They suggested I write extensive blog posts about the areas of law we practiced. I started blogging weekly as much as I could (weekends and evenings). Not only did it start working almost immediately (very little competition at the time), but I loved doing it as well.

I studied SEO and content production to further grow our law firm site. Within months we were getting a lot of new clients every week. I built out more websites (one for each practice area), all of which were a huge success.
At that point I built a non-law site which also took off. That was the beginning of my blogging career. By that point my law practice was very busy as was my blogging business. I had to choose one; I chose blogging and never looked back. Since then, I’ve launched several niche sites and blogs and continue growing them to this day.
What is Everything Else?
Everything Else is a product category on Amazon that is meant to be a catch-all for items that don’t fit into any other categories. Over time, as the Amazon catalog has grown and more specific product categories have been added, Everything Else has become less useful and more of a junkyard for cast off and forgotten listings.
Until recently, however.
Why are items listed in Everything Else when they shouldn’t be?
The answer to this is fairly simple. Some sellers are using Everything Else as an opportunity to get around Amazon’s gated category requirements. For example, DVDs with an MSRP of over $25 are now gated Selling certain products and bran… More and require permission to list. So we’ve seen some sellers create new listings in Everything Else to get around these requirements. We’ve noticed similar “workarounds” for other gated or restricted Selling certain product categorie… More categories as well.
Amazon doesn’t like this. It just makes the catalog more of a mess than it already is and ends up creating a worse customer experience.
