Have made my first affiliate link commission!
Wahoo!! Just checked my Webgains account and found that I have actually made some money through the affiliate links on my website - ok, it's only 78p, and nowhere near enough to be able to have it forwarded to my bank account (I think the minimum amount is £20), but it's proof that the system works.
I won't ramble on, but feel inspired to carry on building my website.
And you know what they say about little acorns ....
