(5) Fri Apr 20 2007 16:18 PST Website ideas:
What if I made the journals/ boxes I foist upon my friends at Christmas/birthdays to sell on my website? Would people pay enough to make it worth while? Probably not. I would have to charge at the very least $30 for a journal, they take like 10 hours to make, plus materials. Also, can anyone recommend a good web server and/or website making software... that is cheap and user (idiot) friendly?

You might want to consider TypePad.http://sethgodin.typepad.com/seths_blog/2007/04/memo_to_the_ver.html

Sometimes homemade gifts aren't worth selling because they take so long. Also, yours are more personal to the recipient, like my box has old photos on it. That sentimentality makes it worth more - but not to a customer.

I was thinking I could make them travel-themed to overcome the personal aspect.

Like maybe someone who has a bit of money but not time or talent to do it themselves would buy it as a gift for the travel lover in their life?

I think it really works better with the personal aspect.
