I am back after a few years away from the web business. I used to hang out in this forum a few years ago under a different name. Im back to learn and discuss all things webmaster with smart like minded people.
A little about me. I was building websites and in the affiliate biz pretty darn hard from 2002 to 2005. Not to toot my own horn but I got involved in a lucrative affiliate biz (its a popular one that im sure most of you know) and made a pretty nice chunk over those 3 years. I just left my websites on autopilot and havent done much if any work over the last 3 years. I went into vacation mode for a while. As you can imagine my income has dropped to almost nil over this time. I got really lazy with work and let my business go. On top of that, I got my a$$ kicked in the real estate market here in Florida putting me right back to square one like I was in 2002, broke as a joke. OK ill stop, I never intended for this to be a SOB story.
So here I am almost 2009 and FINALLY motivated to work again. A lot has changed since I stopped working I can tell you that. Im having to re learn a lot of things! Im looking forward to learning all I can here and helping out wherever I can also.
Maybe some things have changed in those years and one of them is that some of us have discovered we can do business online and have a life. We need no work 16 hour a day but work every day for years... almost like a grocery or an insurance agent:)
