Good things are happening lately and that makes it an exciting time to be an affiliate marketer. Aside from all that fluff, however, I have two good bits of news to share.
First off, although I know it waivers to and fro, our reader base has jumped up to 200 within the last month! Wow! I am seriously happy that this blog is helping people to start affiliate marketing and also helping to increase their profits. All I can say is that I hope you keep coming back for more and I hope more people will begin to participate in discussions. Just like back in the day when the teacher would ask us to speak up so everyone could hear our questions, it's good for other people who are too shy to ask when you ask your questions or make your statements.
Speaking of discussion, the second bit of greatness I have to announce is that I've officially started building the Affiliate Toolbox Forums (click here to view). I've created a tab at the top of the blog so that people who are interested in watching it be built and grow will be able to, and also so that the search engines can index that bad boy.
In previous posts, I talked about releasing it some time this year but the coolest thing happened today. I remembered that I still had a vBulletin license from one of my crazy endeavors that I stopped putting effort into, so I stole it from there and slapped it up and I've been sorting through the jungle of options that is the vBulletin Admin panel. I'm really happy it's all working out though. Plus, the license expires in March of this year so we still have time to figure out whether it's a worthy addition to the site.
So if you're so-inclined, feel free to sign up on the forum and introduce yourself. Hopefully we can get some experts and newbies together to spark some conversation. If not, oh well. I figured we'd give it a shot and see what the response is like over the next few months.
Currently, I'm trying to make the forum heavily focused on matters close to affiliate marketing. However, if you have any suggestions as to what else you'd like to see in the forum, please let me know.
