    My first Affiliate Summit
    Well this was fun, informative, validating, exhausting and oh yeah, delicious!

    Thanks to Shawn and Missy for running Affiliate Summit, Brian for the awesome party Sunday, Haiko and Michelle for the incredible dinner last night, and not least of all, Mellie, my intrepid roommate, for putting up with me for two days and nights and letting me follow her around. To all the folks I met for the first, second or third time -- thanks for being pals. It helps to know that others are following the right path and following the right people, too.

    I'd also like to thank everyone who approached me to ask questions about the NY affiliate solution or offered assistance, and especially the affiliate managers who expressed their hope the solution will allow them to reinstate terminated NY affiliates.

    Rhea,

    It was wonderful to see you again! I admire your spunkiness and think that you are one smart cookie.

    I was very pleased at the amount of positive feedback merchants were giving on the NY compliance solution and I look forward to many more merchants instituting it!

    Heya Kim! Spunky, huh? Darn -- I was shooting for ferocious. Oh well. lol!

    It was fun meeting your mom and of course hanging out with you again. I do remember that I need to send you an email about joining the 4checks program. Will do that as soon as the dogs stop pestering me. They missed their mommy and now they won't leave me alone.

    Hoping Mellie will check in soon. Bit worried about her and Nexus the blue beta as she apparently ran into bad traffic while driving home.

    I felt so guilty this morning as I wrinkled my nose at the smelly salt marsh beside my house! When I finish this frenetic Baltimore - Cape Cod commute, will have to get you up here for a tour.

    Seriously, it was great to meet you. Couldn't make yesterday's sessions because of family visitors. Thank you to you and Herb for letting me hang out with you guys when I could get there!

    You're very welcome, Aunt Lily but it was fun hanging out with you too! I didn't make the sessions yesterday either. I had the flu last week and the novelty and excitement of the summit totally wore me out so I decided it was best to head for home.

    I would love to come for a visit and we can put on long pants and reef runners and I'll take you out to the salt marsh to find critters. They're not always easy to find. You have to know what to look for and where to look for them. I do miss the smell of low tide. :sniffle:

    Nexus & I made it home safely. About 45 minutes or so outside of Boston there was a torrential downpour and then a huge accident a couple miles later. We stopped at the rest stop just after the accident for coffee and twitter check-in. Rest of trip home was okay except for those periodic downpours.

    Summit was great and on the NY issue we made some good progress. I enjoyed meeting so many new people, seeing old friends and of course rooming with Rhea.

    I do have more to say (surprised? lol) but will save it for later. Catching up with the kids & the pets

    Hey Mellie! I'm relieved that you and Nexus made it home alright. I got caught in a couple of downpours when I left Boston yesterday morning and then there was a bit of excitement sometime later when a car ahead of me on the highway had a blowout. Yikes!

    I hope everyone had a relatively uneventful trip home from Summit.

    No hurry, we'll be here. Get yourself all settled in and then we'll chat.

    I've uploaded photos from the dinner at Morton's and also the dinner on 7/27, prior to the NY affiliate meeting in Albany to the internet. If you attended either event and would like to view the photos just send me a PM and I'll send you the link.

    Rhea,

    I am so bummed I missed Summit and missed meeting you! You absolutely HAVE to get to Vegas for Summit West! None of this "I'm not the Vegas type" nonsense ...you don't have to gamble or be decadent, just enjoy US! :-)
    Peace,

    Rexanne I had no idea you could be so bossy!

    I'm very touched you want to meet me. I would like to meet you, too. But the odds are I will not put in an appearance in Vegas in this lifetime. In fact it might be easier to convince Shawn and Missy to hold the next Summit in Montreal. (hint-hint)

    It was a pleasure to meet you too, Rollerblader. I'm glad we had time to shmooze, although it was brief. Next time we'll have to have a longer chat. Keep watching out for those trolls!

    ooh - Montreal. Now you're talking. (I probably won't make Vegas either.)

    Jen Goode! I didn't mean to overlook your post. I forgot. lol! Been doing a bunch of that since I got home and I can't even blame it on the time difference.

    It was awesome meeting you at Summit. You are one of my favorite CP artists and I love the affiliate tools you've built for CP as well. I used to use them all the time, before I got booted for being a NY resident, and I hope to use them again in the future. >koff<

    I'm just sorry it was so noisy at the party that it made it difficult to chat. I hope next time we'll be in a more conducive setting and can talk "shop" and penguins. Yours are the best!
