As Bruce Springsteen once said, I went out for a ride and I never went back.
Way back when in 2006 Darren Rouse was getting famous with his Problogger Blog, and I made a splash when I bought this domain AffiliateBlog for $2500, enough to make a splash and get on a list. Imagine that.
My intention was to blog about Internet Marketing and affiliate programs and all kinds of related stuff have fun doing it.
Unfortunately a good friend of mine, Sara Whalen, died of cancer that year, leaving her life’s work, Pets Alive Animal Sanctuary, in a shambles. I had to make a choice, and I chose Pets Alive. Together with my partner and good friend Kerry Clair we built Pets Alive back up and four years later I am back here and Kerry is still going strong at Pets Alive as things continue to get better and better. More than 4000 animals are still alive because of our efforts and the efforts of the dedicated staff and volunteers, and it was quite a ride.
I kept my hand in Internet Marketing and SEO. Not as much as I’d like to, but I set up some test domains and methodologies that are still working today. I turned to my test sites when the Google Panda update was announced, and I have a lot of interesting stuff to tell you about that and other things.
I look forward to working with all of you again and hope you tell your friends I”m back.
I have some great ideas as well. I see Darren wants you to pay $5.95 a month to hear what he has to say. Good for him. I won’t ever charge for my stuff. I have an idea for a premium service that includes a weekly analysis of all the major affiliate networks with their top performing programs. I’ll be rolling that out as soon as I get around to rewriting the spider I wrote back in 2006.
I just did a little digging and apparently Darren has between 45,000 and 48,000 subscribers each month to his community. That’s $3 million a year. I am speechless. God Bless him. Wow. And then he wrote a book too.
Wow…but I still have 70 subscribers to my feed. 70. Thanks. Bet you’ve been wondering why I’m not there anymore. You probably were just too lazy to delete me. Well now it’s gonna pay off for you. Email me and I’ll give you some free phone time just for hanging in there.
I’m looking forward to writing again and working with everyone. I think I can offer a unique perspective and we can have a lot of fun together. So sign up for the email digest because I have some great stuff coming down the pike and I’d like to share it with you.
It’s great to be back!
