I own AmuseLine.com domain name for about 6-8 months now. It is time to add a website to the home page that is online all these months.
I have not started new websites for the last 10-12 months. Now I have (I hope) a much better understanding and knowledge of website publishing and industry in general compared to what I had a year back when I started my websites every month. As a result of this, I am very careful with starting new projects: competition, Sandbox, Trustbox, etc. I try to use some failure proof algorithm and cut my costs to minimum otherwise I will not be able to compete with other website publishers.
I am not sure if it works, but here is the sequence of my actions with starting new websites at this point in time. I make use of these articles and tools:

And also be prepared that will take months (if not years) to build an established website.
