    Happy Birthday ABW :)
    I'm a day early, but hey, I think this deserves more than one day of celebration

    I woke up this morning realizing once again how big a role ABW and ABWers have played in my life, especially in the past year since Chris died. During a time when I didn't believe in myself at all, there were 2 people that got me through, by believing in me and not letting me forget that. One is not a regular here, she is a very busy mom about to undergo some things that will actually keep her offline for a weeks. She pops in and out when she can. Jen is awesome.

    The other is Haiko, he was there when I needed to hear that people still needed me. Although at the time I had never met him, he kept me sane. Well, as sane as I could be at the time.

    *All* the good things in my life are because of ABW and the people here at ABW. I am finally finding peace and even some measure of *gasp* happiness (that word REALLY scares me) because of people that I met here first. I won't make a list, you all know exactly who you are.

    Haiko, Happy Birthday to your baby. Thank you for creating and maintaining the place that we can call home. Thank you for allowing me to be a large part of it. Thank you for not banning me as an obnoxious newbie. Thank you for giving us all a place to learn and grow and share.

    Thank you for being awesome.

    Happy Birthday to ABW, and all of us I guess. I wasn't here from day one, but it sure has been a long, fun, educational, and profitable ride!

    And I know I can count on all of you in both business and in friendship, and I sleep well knowing that.

    Congrats Haiko. Be careful though. ABW is probably old enough to start looking at colleges now...

    I don't think I'd be where I am if it weren't for Haiko and ABW. I'd probably be working in a bookstore somewhere with two cats and a pot of tea, instead of at ShareASale with two cats and a styrofoam cuppa joe.

    The kind of education you get here is the kind you'll never see in books, and you'll never truly understand the implications of any affiliate industry development or decision unless someone puts it to you ABW-style. Thank you Haiko for building such an amazing community of people. I wouldn't change a thing.

    Yes, Happy Birthday ABW and Congrats Haiko! When I first began working in this industry, I was absolutely clueless. If it wasn't for ABW, I would have never found my passion in life, and start working towards my goals.

    Haiko, you are truely and inspiration and a world class person all the way around!

    Happy birthday ABW. I'm still considered new to ABW and affiliate marketing but the amount of knowledge since I joined ABW has exceeded expectation. I think I'd still be clueless if it wasn't for ABW.

    Mucho gracias!

    ABW is awesome! I think August 3 should be declared a National Holiday and moved to Monday so we get a 3 day weekend on our birthday every year! Haiko - you have created something that means the world to many - Thank you!

    ABW *is* the college, and we should all be paying tuition, at least by giving back to the community

    I started lurking here about a year ago and finally joined a couple of months later. Joining ABW was probably the single best decision I made as an affiliate.

    Thanks to Haiko for having such a great place to learn and share opinions and to all of the ABW members that have helped and guided me in the past year (and put up with my occasional rant).

    Thank you Haiko and thank you all for your nurturing, your guidance, your knowlegde that is given so freely to all that ask and participate.

    I met most of you for the first time at ASE (mostly because nobody knew who I was at ASWest, lol) and as I said in an earlier post during ASEast, your WARM welcome really made me feel like I am part of the ABW family. You all have been an integral part of my learning curve here in this thing here we call Affiliate Marketing.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY ABW! YOU ROCK!

    Happy Birthday ABW and a very huge thank you to Haiko.

    I left affiliate marketing for awhile and it was with great delight I found ABW not only still around but better than ever.

    Happy B-day ABW. I haven't been around all that long, and I've still got a lot to learn - so here's to a long and healthy life!

    Joining this community has been one of the smartest decisions of my life (I have to place marrying my wife as #1). Because of the influence of good people here, I know what I want to do with my life, and I have a plan to get it. It gives me great satisfaction to be working towards a goal - and that has been made possible to a great extent by the influence of my online home.

    Happy, happy birthday...and many more!

    Words really can not describe the appreciation I have for this place, or the people in it. The posts housed here have taught me things I would never have known otherwise.

    Thanks, Haiko!
