RegoWerve : I've got a business idea to run a website and sell advertising space on it to make money.

I need to gain funding in order to set it up.
Theoretically, I could manage on £100 to pay for domain names and hosting space. (I don't want to go with free options because they look unprofessional, and the £100 is needed to cover the whole year)
The more money I gain, the better it will be for the business to take off the ground. (If I got, say £1,000 I could pay for a complete website design, and a small marketing campaign.)

I do not want to take out a loan. I've never liked the idea of throwing away money later for the sake of being able to have some now. Also going on the point that my business is not guaranteed to make money straight away.

I am in receipt of benefits, so personal funding is not an option (unless I wish to starve myself).

What methods can I use to gain this funding aside from asking family and friends?
Without trying to sound rude, but more in order to "get a point across".
I am going to simply ignore anyone who tells me "get off your butt and work, then save some money in order to start up".

The reason I am starting this whole business is because I am fed up with the amount of times I have been turned down for work for the last year.
I've come out of College with the equivalent of 3 A-Levels with A grades in IT, Software Development, and Computing, but not even local computer shops want to take me on as a salesperson because I "don't have enough experience".
Even when I enquire at local supermarkets I receive a "Sorry, we don't have any vacancies, come back in a month."

The reason I want to start this company is because I want to work, but haven't been able to so far.

Daudiodia : No one is going to provide funding to you for the purpose of setting up just another website trying to sell advertising. There are already millions of them on the Internet, and with very few exceptions, none of them ever make a dime, despite all the effort and investment from their owners.

Perhaps if you are lucky enough to come up with a completely new concept, such as Google, Youtube, Facebook and Twitter once did, you will have a chance, but otherwise regardless of how difficult it may seem to you, getting a job will likely be your only chance of earning money at this point in your life. And as for your education, unfortunately it really means nothing without experience. You have to start somewhere...even if it is doing something that you can't see yourself doing right now.

FliesDigGense : I have a Neil Lane engagement ring
This ring has side diamonds I decided that I want just a very thin slim band to go with it. This way the side diamonds are not hidden. My question is with the engagement ring and style of band I want, do you think it would look good if the band was rose gold. If I did get the rose gold then for my anniversary band I would also get a rose gold band either the same or similar.

kayattsag : I *love* the look of rose gold with white gold! I think that it looks elegant, romantic, and I love that it's a bit unexpected. Have you tried on rings at a local jewelry store so that you can see what they look like in person? Honestly, if you love the look that is all that matters.

aaliyah979 : I'm looking at the tungsten rings as a gift to me from my girlfriend (she wants me to pick one i like) and its just supposed to be a ring I wear nothing more than a gift. As said i'm look at (the tungsten rings) as they are simple. If i was to get one and just wear it would it be out of the norm or would i get funny looks etc?

Is there a different kind of ring you would suggest?

Thanks for the input
