    I'm back ABW!! hello everyone
    well hello everyone, most of you know who I am, it's me jason who used to own xtremeshopping.org and freebiesforever. of course they no longer exist as I'm pretty much done with Affiliate Marketing at the moment. just got to much stuff going on in my life and my mind. For those who read my previous posts, I was having some back problems and other issues. Well I'm on Social Security Disability now. and have to wait another year before I get medical Insurance. well I'v been going though alot of painful events: which includes death tragedies, stress panic attacks,nervous breakdowns etc. But I'm back and pretty much just taking it easy working on my computer playing video games and planning to get back making websites and teaching affiliate marketing and helping my friends from safeway and others to make some money. Well I pretty much cant do affiliate marketing and get paid for it anymore so I can only do cash under the table income. anyway doctors pretty much said I dont have a good chance of recovering could take years and may never recover. anyway I have not forgotten about you all, and I'll be on ABW more actively now. since I pretty much have alot of free time. before you flame me for playing video games, keep in mind lol that I am pretty much different then I used to be, dont have alot of energy, loss of interest in stuff I once enjoyed. anyway I'm back and hopefully will be more active on this forum. if you see new people start showing up on ABW you know why... p=.

    I"m back on ABW!!!!! Hello ALL.

    Abestweb is a great forum. and also would like to say hi to: haiko, Andy R, Ecomcity, Adam Ward,Billy Kay,Brian - ShareASale, Chet_B, Merchant Consultant Team, missdonna, Shawn Collins, SSanf, TrustNo1 and if I missed anyone sorry but got your name from the whos active on the front of abestweb. so If I missed you I say hi to you too!.

    ok back to reading recent posts on abw :0).

    hi
    hi misdonna p= and ssanf. nice to be back, so can anyone list some free website hosting providers with not alot of advertising requirements, etc I know paid hosting is better but I'm on a fixed income and cant afford it right now, and I dont even have access to my money since I'm on SSD I have to have a alt payee. anyway I"m pretty much going to get my friends on free webhosting providers till they get comfortable with affiliate marketing and make the money to get on paid webhosting. and yes Abestweb first started on free webhosting and its cause of there growth that there on paid hosting now.

    note: I'm pretty much starting from scratch now, so have to surf the internet and find those tools that I use. yeah wordtracker is already on my list!!!

    Welcome back, Jason. You have a lot of reading to do to catch up. Affiliate Maketing is not what it used to be. Much more merchants, more competition too. Good Luck.

    My thoughts too. You get free webhosting, do what you want with it, and can make some pocket change on the side.

    Are you still part of Adsense Jason?

    Jason,

    If I am not mistaken, I believe that we met at an ABW conference in Las Vegas in 2004. I'm sorry to hear that you are not doing well, but it seems that maybe you are on the down side of the hill now. I wish you the best.

    You were always a colorful character around here, so I'm glad to see that you will be contributing again.

    Sheri

    Jason -

    Good to see you are back

    Why bother with affiliate marketing at all. Get yourself an account at blogger and use adsense as an income. You dont have to worry about updating affiliate links. Just pick a topic and run with it. The money will follow if you write about something that interest you.

    This is not going to be a popular idea by many here that swear by affiliate links but blogger is a good and FREE way to get some income.

    If you are looking for free webspace, try Freewebspace.net for the most recent offers:

    I am not a social worker and I do not know the details of your case, but you might look at http://www.ssa.gov/pubs/10095.html

    Special rules make it possible for people receiving Social Security disability benefits or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) to work and still receive monthly payments until they can work on a regular basis.

    The rules are different under Social Security and SSI. We describe the rules under each program in different sections of this booklet ...

    source
    I'm not sure how the rules would apply to your case (and I'm not the one to ask) but ssa.gov publishes many publications so maybe if your earnings were under a certain threshold you could work on websites? I am not sure about what rules apply to your case (or how "work" is defined), so all I can do is point out information available to you on Social Security Online

    Remember that SSD and SSI are different programs with different applicable rules. You might be able to earn a limited amount without "rocking the boat" of your ability to receive benefits.

    well for those who care I"m back and quite doing something different at the moment, my enjoyment is pretty much doing video blogging. you can see my video blogs at http://www.youtube.com/profile_video...ickoflifetoday just so you know this has nothing to do with profit since I'v been around on the internet for a long time I jut decided it was time to share my thoughts of the affiliate marketing industry, the internet, ecommerce, etc. anyway hope everyones doing well, and hopefully I'll be back soon, still going though hard times.

    Hi Jason.

    Don't really know you but welcome back.

    I would suggest blogging or hosting the website yourself.
    What is the status on that as I saw that you were asking about GoDaddy.

    Welcome back..

    How's it going Jason. Checked out a few videos already, will check some more out later. Watching your adware one, I went to check to see if anybody posted any videos of any of the parasites. Couldn't find anything.

    Eric (FairFieldGetaway-FairFieldGetaway-EricEwe) yeah I know having your own domain is the best option, however due to my circumstances I pretty much can only use free services at the moment. unless you wanna give me free hosting forever p= lmao to promote your services. I've been around doing affiliate marketing since the early days of amazon.com having there affiliate program opened and cj.com having a forum affiliate for affiliates, which that was a long time ago, not really sure when that was.. TrustNo1 thanks for watching my videos, I am planning to due major videos of the parasites, and other topics, in the future, if anyone has any requests feel free to contact me, best regards and hope everyone had a great new year. who0 2007! lol.

    Hi Jason,

    Eric is my name, FairfieldGetaway is my program. It will be Wyndham Vacation Ownership pretty soon, part of Wyndham Worldwide.

    Here is my proposition, I will buy you 1 year of hosting + domain name with my own $. Not my company funds - doubt that I can use it too

    I am in no position to fund you for life unless my last name is Gates and I definately don't want to be a VC with you cos I prefer to help you get on your feet than to be your boss/partner. Nothing against you.

    Here is the catch:
    *Nothing is free. You repay me for the initial cost of whatever + 3% interest (that is half of the current avg APR and it amount to about $1-$3/year) of what I put out when you earn your $$ back or in 11 month from the time you get the hosting / domain. Which ever comes first. I am not trying to get rich with this but it's just an incentive for you to work harder.
    *Nothing illegal, no guns/violent, get rich scheme, no drugs, nothing religious/politicial as it can always get sticky and prefer to stay away from porn.
    *Be one of our active affiliate via Linkshare. You will be paid accordingly like any hard working affiliate of FairfieldGetaway.com (Wyndham VO). You might be one of our super aff that makes $xx,xxxx from us. Then I will be buying you beers.
    *No spamming or doing anything illegal with the website, domain, and must abide by all county-state-federal regulations.
    *Second year, I doubt that you will need me. You are on your own unless unforceen circumstance comes into play, then we can talk.
    *You will own the domain but failure to comply with the rules, especially the state regulations and I will make it my life mission to harass the hosting company till they take down the URL-domain.

    There is no 10 page contract to sign but I will hold you to your word.

    Let me know if you are interested and PM me. I can set you up in a day or 2. Can't help you during day time as I have a day job which I love and plan to keep.

    Cheers
    Eric
