    It's been a slice
    Hey fellow ABW'ers

    I know that most of you don't know me, so this may fall under the "who gives a damn" category, but after spending thousands of hours here at ABW, I've decided to move on.

    I couldn't leave without saying how much I appreciate what this place is and how much it means to countless affiliates. I've learned a lot, been entertained, and grown to appreciate what a fine group of people hang out here. You are truly like an extended family, helping each other, squabbling at times, and just being there when needed most.

    For me, the financial rewards simply no longer justify the time I spend on my sites, so I'm off to persue other ventures.

    I wish you all the best, and hope that you continue to survive and to thrive in the future.

    Thank you all.

    Sorry to hear it is not working out for you!
    Following everyone else is a GREAT way to become average.

    I'd be interested in hearing more about your plans for the future. Are you pursuing other online ventures that will make you some money?.....or some other field entirely?

    From the sound of it you've spent a lot of time on your sites - are you selling them....sitting on them or what?

    I'd have quite a bit of success online and the curiosity in me wants to know more - perhaps there is a way to make your sites work for you - can your fellow ABWebers take a look and see if we can help you out before you throw in the towel?

    WOW,

    That is too bad and kind of discouraging for us newbies to affiliate marketing.

    Did you lose money - make money - or break even?

    Anyway, I don't really expect a response as it's none of my business.

    Good luck in your future endeavors.

    I'm not selling any sites, I'm simply taking them down and selling the names on Sedo. While they would continue to earn me some money for some time, I simply won't let them slide and turn into outdated crap.

    I never meant to be discouraging, and honestly, if what I said causes you feel bad about your chances, you may already be in trouble.

    For what it's worth, I did make money, enough to live on, but not enough to live the way I want.

    Anyway, the purpose of this thread was simply to say goodbye and to let you all know what a great place this is and how much I appreciate you all. Don't be sad, or discouraged..... I'm not.
