    I know this will bore you, but I gotta' tell someone - and the ABW crowd is the only folks who can relate!

    I'm sure everyone has some kind of bar graph to track their earnings - I use QuickBooks.

    It always has 10 normal size bars (my normal monthly commissions), and two really high bars for November and December.

    Guess what?

    I just got a July bar that's higher than November!

    And we're only half way thru July!!

    Barring the Internet closing down, or something stupid like me forgetting to renew a domain name, I'm gonna have a bigger earnings bar in July than in December!

    Had to tell someone. Thanks for listening! Gotta' go back to staring at my bar graph!

    Bunch of stuff convergerd to my benefit:

    The last CJ update unearthed merchants that never converted before (I didn't do anything on my end!) There must be a zillion Fredricks of H sales, and I never changed the page on my end.

    Ditto with BeFree, Merchants I didn't even know I belonged to are becomming "significant"

    Lucked out with several of my biggest converters - basically they divested parts of their companies - so now I get to promote my biggest converters as three seperate companies (don't know if I explained that right)

    Two of my biggest drop shippers started aff programs (Lox and Linda know one of them)

    Created a buncho niche sites, and I lucked out - I picked the right niches!

    Also, I got picky about which merchants to promote. This is probably obvious NOW, but it didn't use to be: rather than spending four hours updating 10 different clothing store merchants - only one of which makes me money - I'm spending my 4 hours just on the moneymaker.

    Finally, and this is for the newbies, after a while, there comes a point where either because of the amount of sales you convert, or maybe just by longevity, quality merchants approach YOU, with above average deals.

    Only 'cause you asked lox: Day before yesterday I went to Unocal/76 for a pack of cigaretts, put my change in a machine - $4000!!!!! Royal Flush on a dollar machine! At a gas station!

    PS: I have 2 weeks of Sunday classifieds hanging out by my feet. PM me your address so I can send them to you.
