The Start

Finally, I’ve gotten around to creating a blog, that I aim to write on at least once a week. I’ve decided that if I set a target like that, then I might actually stick to it this year!

Firstly, let me introduce myself. I’m Rich, and these are to be my musings, thoughts, and stories about my affiliate marketing / web journey. As it stands, I’ve been trying to achieve any form of success for around 2 and a bit years now, and I’m still struggling. I don’t know why, but I think that part of the problem is that I get sidetracked too easily!

Back in October 2008 I was lucky enough to win a ticket to the Affiliates 4 U expo down in London, as a result of a competition on Kirsty’s blog. I made some great acquaintances, and have kept in touch since. However, I’ve not really capitalised on what I learnt or the networking that I did, and I feel it’s gone to waste.

Since then, I’ve also been lucky enough to have been given tickets to the prestigious A4U Awards in London, by Helen (owner of, and still I failed to capitalise on it. Helen, if you’re reading this, I will repay you for those tickets one day!

I’ve purchased domains for a lot more than the normal Nominet fee, and sold them for many times more, and have sold a few products for merchants earning myself some small commissions, but to date, my affiliate earnings stand in the low 3-figure region.

My aims for this blog are to try and give myself some focus, and to get myself into a regular work habit, so that 2011 is my year! Hopefully I will motivate people along the way too, and even if I just help one person, then I’ll be happy.

Any tips or inspirational ideas will be gratefully received!
