I wish I could have used a better title but right now, its 1:05am, (Manila Time) and my brain isnt working on its optimal level. I may have to edit it tommorow or Do You have any suggestions?

Anyways. . . I dont know where to start. So ill have to start from where I currently stand.

I have missed posting on this blog (my other blogs included) because I was so busy; not with school as I heavily complained about last month, not with my girl (she's been great, really!) but with Affiliate Marketing. Yes, i finally gathered all my guts, my inspiration, my strength and well, money (from blogging) and sort of rolled it in together to start my affiliate marketing.

Did it really take that long?

Well, not really but close enough. I was REALLY busy with school during the first week of march because it was our Finals. Grades are not yet released but im confident I did well. ;)

The rest of the time, I spent it all on learning making money from Affiliate Marketing. Just to give you an idea on what has been happening, I have the following things for you. Just connect them all together and im pretty sure youll get the picture:

  • I bought/downloaded numerous affiliate marketing guide eBooks. I have 4 eBooks on my hard disk right now and I have read all of them at least 2 times. (If you want a copy, comment or contact me)
  • I downloaded tools for obtaining and managing keywords (Keyword Expert)
  • I spent (more like lost) $50 and counting on Google adwords.
  • I have 3 domains. Only one has yet to make money. The other two are well, not yet making some but maybe sometime soon (fingers crossed).
  • I signed up for CJ and LinkShare and Im on their site everyday.
  • I unintentionally "annoyed" a respected filipino blogger. (More to this in future posts)
  • Wordpress, Wordpress and even more Wordpress.
Well, thats all i can think of right now. So i guess you get the picture of what I have been doing.

What were the effects of your absence?

Good question. Alot! I'll start with my blog income. Its way, way downhill. On my estimate, I think I dropped 50% from my earnings the previous months. Yes, this might sound very saddening but well, you got to take calculated risks my friend and that's just what I did (or at least, i hope so).

My blog visits and pageviews: They both went down bigtime. The last time I checked sitemeter, I am only averaging 40 visits a day (This is disheartening). I used to average 110 the very least last month. I just noticed that im way out of my SERPs. I used to be the top authority for "Teens+Make+Money" keyword but right now, im on the 3rd page. Goodbye organic visits!

Enough with the Negative parts, this is what keeps me going, the Positive ones:

I learned Wordpress! I have 3 domains and im planning to get more and host them still using wordpress. I just love it (i hated it first. lol).

I learned alot from reading eBooks, Affiliate sites and blogs, Newsletters, Tools. You know what, im thinking how many units would my university credit the knowledge I earned from my readings. Im a nursing student and I read ALOT of books on a daily basis but trust me, I have read EVEN MORE while learning affiliate marketing.

I learned to appreciate myself better. Now dont panic, im not trying to be mushy or anything here but really, I learned something from myself. I have to extend my patience more. Enough said. lol

My adsense earnings increased. I dont know why but its just the case. God is Really Good i tell you. ;) But I will have to track my earnings more to satisfy my intuitive mind on this matter.

What Are Your Plans Now?

My plans are simple. MAKE TONS OF MONEY! (im just kidding). Well, thats part of it but im planning to continue learning everyday and improve. As they say, the first dollar is always the hardest. And I believe in this! My first blogging dollar was the hardest and if you were reading my blog for quite sometime, you know what I mean. ( I still love my PSP that blogging bought me) And oh! I forgot to post about it. I bought a Phone! Again, from blogging! Ill post on this sometime soon.

To Sum it all up:

Im here! Im still alive and kicking! And as greedy as ever! So come to my blog more often. The deal still stand; Be my visitor and we'll all earn together!

I just want to thank people who showed there concern by one way or another. You guys know who you are. :) I apologize for not answering your queries and questions through email. Also, I apologize to those who emailed me whom I wasnt able to respond to.
