Many bloggers, web designers have websites/blogs which are developed no further & does not mean anything to their owners anymore. There is an easy-to-use option to monetize them:
SiteRedeemr is a company who is specialized in purchasing defunct, unwanted websites of all types.
How Are The Websites Valued?
From SiteRedeemr FAQ:
Our staff will consider a number of factors, such as domain age, appearance and quality of content before coming up with a fair and competitive price. However, we won’t take into account how much revenue your site creates.
How It Works?
The process is very straightforward:
- Fill the quote form by mentioning the URLs, an analyst checks the sites &.sends a quote in 48 hours
- If the price is satisfactory & you accept selling it, SiteRedeemr transfers the domains & website files to their own systems
- They complete the payment to your PayPal account in 48 hours
The best thing about the service is, there is nothing to lose as there are no promises or charges during the quoting process.

CSS galleries are beautiful resources for getting inspired & promoting the websites we created.
In order to submit websites to these galleries, you need to:
- have a list of the galleries
- know which ones are more popular
- browse all of them one-by-one
MeeCSS is a free web-based application which eases this process. It is not an automated submission system which would not be ethical.
It simply asks you to fill the information that will be required (name, e-mail, website address, etc.) & with the help of an iframe, you can submit to the galleries one-by-one by copy-pasting the fields you had filled.
It also displays to CSS galleries sorted by pageranks & enables you to select which galleries to submit.
P.S. it would be much easier if the selected fields were auto-selected (or better: auto-copied).

Bumpbox is another Lightbox clone which offers a very easy usage & has some advantages over others.

The script works for both local & remote files. And, to show FLV files, it uses Flowplayer media player.
FormFields is a very handy resource which makes it easier to produce more usable form entry fields with ASP.NET.
Rather than writing markup over and over for things like validation, regular expressions, dropdownlist databinding, etc., FormFields handles all the hassle for you.

<formField:textBox ID="tb_SchoolDate" runat="server" Type="Date" Required="True" Title="School Date" />
Yes, that easy & with a clean markup (the look & feel can be customized via CSS).
FormFields requires .Net Framework 3.5 & AjaxControlToolkit to run.
