Yay! Jake is HOME!

I tell you what.. Jake LeClaire had the best vacation ever.  After Ron Jon’s Club Caribe Resort for a week with Kalle and me, he was off to Hickory North Carolina with mom,  Grandma and Grandpa for a week of family reunion with his uncles and aunts and cousins. Kalle came back to tampa and Grandma and grandpa  took him with them to visit his aunt Lynn  in Conneticut.  They did so many fun things!

He got to to see where his cousin Ethan worked at  Hopeville Pond State Park and  Waterski  for the first time behind Ethans Boat.  He also got dragged around on a tube too!

Boston was in the mix too with a visit to Ethans Twin sister, Danielle at Tufts University.

The ride in was on the ” T.”

Jake also got to visit Uconn, Ethans College (home of the family’s favorite sports teams!



Lots of side trips to the beach in Rhode Island, Charleston and East Beach.  He says he dug the DEEPEST HOLE EVER at Charleston beach. Pictures to come!

The long drive home with stops at uncle Jimmy’s  finally ended with Jake being home!  We missed you so much but are happy you had such a good time .. and he grew an inch and is eating like a horse!

"Performance" marketing is what my friend CJ.com calls it

I like “performance marketing”  i think it connotates less sleaze than internet marketing.. Commission Junction has  extensive informative performance marketing  topics to get your mind humming!  Of course now I’m reading this stuff and got away a liddle bit from picking that template!  So much to see so much to do.. thank god i’m so Rapt with it right now.

The Commission Junction learning curve

The real deal on Commission Junction

A.  Everybody says must join its easy

B.  I agree we must but it wasnt that “easy”

Its all your stuff.. you know all your personal info and your site name and what you niche are you in and so forth …so if you are just embracing the internet marketing thing,  like me, you’ll want to have at least a domain name  before you go register  cuz they ask the url. It does not have to be up and running though, it can be underconstruction.

The legal stuff is daunting.. I actually read the terms and conditions so i’d have an idea of how it worked.  Its a complex matrix .. i’d reccomend reading them.  and if you do.. it aint gonna take the proverbial 5 minutes to set up your account.. you are probably looking at around 30 minutes.

BUT once you get into commission junction?  It is a plethora of info.. free stuff just for affiliate marketers like us.. who are out there trying to figure their angle and connect their arrows and dots.  I cant wait to really delve into the stuff there!  You’ll be impressed too!  and all FREE  FREE FREE.. i mean really free for joining them!

oh yeah.. http://cj.com


It is the morning of the 4th day of the week…wednesday

Golly moses! You’d think it’d be simple to pick a dern web template. But the selection is so vast and rich with brilliance of designers galore. But all of those paid advertiser spots  that say FREE? Oh they arent.. dont believe it for a second. They are just using the FREE WEB TEMPLATE keyword to get .. yep.. you guessed it TRAFFIC! Anything you click on there that’s a paid advertiser is bogus.. Oh they show you templates, but try to find a free one.. they are affiliates for the big boys like template monster.com. Now, templatemonster.com? Man, great eye candy.. and idea spawning site for Budding E marketers.  There is sooooo much stuff there.. lots and lots of totally sharp 20 to 30 dollar web templates that’ll knock your socks off!  But  that AINT free.   Note to self.. FREE is a great traffic building word.. does the product you are promoting have to be free? Evidently  HECK no! And the thing that kills me.. I thought i’d go ahead and sign up as an affiliate because i was soooo impressed with them and wanted to share knowledge in a positive way, and heck yeah.. get a little back when i send people there and they like what they see. but alas, they rejected my application.  yep templatemonster.com rejected MY application.. So  know that my admiration of them is genuine cuz i wont be makin a dime.. wonder if maybe down the road they’ll reconsider?  Oh .. hell yes.  They will come to me on their hands and knees and beg.  lol jest kiddin. OH here’s the link
