Jonathan Danylko's passion for techie stuff led to launching a blog to help programming entrepreneurs. However, it was when he began reviewing Foxfire extensions that he experienced the true impact of blogs and the internet. As Jonathan told me, "This is a personal story instead of a business (story.)"

I've always had a passion for technology. I've been working with computers since I was 11 and have been knee-deep in technology ever since.
I just started a site at the beginning of this year for single programming entrepreneurs who have a product and wish to build a business out of it. Most of the posts are geared towards technology, small business, and the open web overall in combination with my passion for "techie stuff."
Recently, I've started a segment for reviewing the newest Firefox extensions every Friday. I've called my posts Fireday and, of course, post them every Friday.
As I was reading some posts in the blogosphere one day, I came across an individual who purchased the Microsoft Fingerprint Reader and couldn't get it to work in Firefox. A few weeks ago, I had just reviewed an extension that solved the problem with the reader in Firefox. I immediately posted a reply to him and continued my reading for the day.
Little did I know, he shouted from the highest mountain saying that he was very grateful for the post and he couldn't believe the power of the Internet. The solution seemed to be a big hit because there were others who were saying thank you as well, based on the comments below.
It seems my reviewing of Firefox extensions every Friday helps at least one person a week, and in my book, that satisfies, inspires, and fuels me even more to continue my passion for technology and pursue my new passion for blogging. :-)
