    Talking On Vacation next week - will sales pay for it while I'm gone?
    I'll be signing out for 8 days starting this Sunday, as my wife and I head for Hawaii - our first real vacation since our honeymoon 14 years ago. No kids, no laptop, just us and the sun

    I think it'll take me a few days to break out of my daily affiliate rituals before I can really relax (up at 5 am, checking stats, posting an article, answering a few yahoo questions, searching for related sites, etc, etc).

    I'm hopeful that sales will keep coming in even though I won't be doing any work. That's the appeal of affiliate marketing, where money comes in even when you're not working (at least for short stints like this one).

    Take yesterday, I didn't really do much of anything for my affiliate business since I was too busy at my regular job and then we had the parents vs kids soccer game (sore today from that), and then it was Survivor, Gray's Anatomy, and then bed. Yet money still rolled in the door from adsense, kontera, cj, and regnow.

    Sunshine - here I come!

    It seems like we always make more money when we're not in there messing with it. Every time we spend a few days on the road, we log in and discover it was a BIG day instead of a small-medium one. Good luck and enjoy Hawaii - it's beyond belief wonderful.

    Perhaps I need to take a long vacation to test that theory.

    Rick, what part of Hawaii are you going to?

    Hey Rick, have a great time and a relaxing vacation. Everyone needs some extra rays of sunshine. Go get 'em, and enjoy Hawaii.

    Coincidently my "better half" and I are leaving Sunday on a 6-day cruise to Bermuda. I'm taking my good camera but NO COMPUTER. Counting on sales rolling in while we are away is, as you said, one of the cool things about this business.

    No laptop! But, three Gigs worth of picture cards should hold me over.

    Most of what I "need" to shoot will be at the beginning of the trip. The cruise terminal is in a neighborhood where i own the dot-com of the exact name. So, I'll be creating a site about getting through the neighborhood to the cruise terminal, parking, boarding the ship, etc. OOPS...supposed to be a VACATION...


    I assure you I will have a few cool photos for imageKind...

    You can turn off your laptop, but you can turn off a good affiliate's brain!
