    My One Year Anniversary in Affiliate Marketing
    Well it's been a whole year since I entered the world of affiliate marketing, and I must say it's been one heck of a ride. When I first started doing this, I read many posts about how hard it was, people failing, giving up, etc. I told myself that if I couldn't figure this out in a years time, and actually start making a profit, I would move onto something else.

    Thankfully for me, after about 3 or 4 months into this business, I figured out what works for me, and have been making a profit ever since. Now that I know what I'm capable of, I'm setting goals and hopefully will be able to quit my day job in the next few months.

    I want to thank all the great people here at ABW for all the knowledge you have put into this forum. Without the knowledge I found here, I'm sure it would have taken me alot longer than it did.

    Thanks everyone!

    My sister-in-law actually introduced me into affiliate marketing, she was looking for work that you could do from home, and told me about this. I'm not sure how she found out about it though, I'll have to ask her. She has since moved onto other things, and I have been sticking with this, since this type of work is related to what I have been going to college for (IT with an emphasis on Web Design).

    It hasn't been an easy road, and the first couple of months I actually made a profit, it wasn't much at all. I think the hardest part for me is finding the time needed to work on my website, build pages, etc. Being a single mother with 2 kids, a full time job, going to college, and then affiliate marketing - doesn't leave me much time, LOL. But I'm in this for the long haul, and I appreciate all the kind words from everyone!

    Good job!
    I would rather live my life as if there is a God and die
    to find out there isn't, than live my life as if there
    isn't and die to find out there is.

    Congratulations, Lanadili for sticking with it and having the determination to see it through. It seems to me that very few noobies lately have the guts, vision and skill to make AM work for them. Unlike many others you're building a business for the future, not looking for a quick buck, and that earns you my admiration.

    With all that you have on your plate I'm impressed that you find any time to work on your online business. Do you sleep?!?

    I'm glad you've stuck it out. The best thing about AM is that you can fit it into your life, no matter what the circumstances.

    Thank you Rhea, that means alot to me.

    LOL, yes but not nearly as much as I'd like. What keeps me going is the knowledge that I can do this from home (to be with my kids), and make more than what I'm making now at my day job (which I dread going to).

    Way to go Lanadili! it's good to see success in the Bayou State. Maybe someday I'll actually get to see another affiliate face to face.
