It's been a long day for this guy and I'm feeling pretty exhausted, which prompted me to write this blog. But...hold on a a minute...if I'm so tired, why don't I just go to bed instead of writing this silly blog? The point is, the reason I'm so exhausted is because I am a procrastinator. I had to file my 2013 taxes today, which kept me up all night long and into the wee morning hours before I was finally prepared for today's appointment. Mind you, this was after filing a 6 month extension. I ne

...and still not a single ad click. That's mainly because I don't have any ads on the site. See what I did there... ;) The best thing you can do for yourself as you start on your road to success in affiliate marketing is to refrain from placing ad units on your site, at least until you've acquired enough visitors and trust to facilitate the conversions.

In my opinion, the fewer sites the bette

Posted to my first site this evening built through the WA site builder. Setup is too easy - almost unsettlingly so. ;) For someone who always does the manual installation for WP - the one-click install feels weird, but I like the convenient login access available here. Question: I always recommend against using 'admin' for a user ID. I'm wanting to change it, but a part of me likes the luxury of having the easy-access login buttons.

Let me begin by saying that I am very happy to be a part of this program. In the few hours that I've spent poking around the startup guides and training tools I've seen enough to feel like this product offers a good blueprint for success. I created my first affiliate site in late-2007 and have been hooked ever since. Although my first 2 sites were duds, I kept with it and eventually got some momentum. I did not enter into this with pie in the sky goals of making a million dollars per year, but
