You could say things have really died down with this blog over the past couple years. I feel that, and I don’t like it. I started writing up a free step-by-step affiliate guide updated for 2012, and originally I had planned on starting up a new blog and opening it with the guide. But I didn’t want to fall into the same cycle of blog-self-destruction; I wanted to freshen things up.
Why a forum? With forum posts, I get the exact same content across as I would blogging. The beauty of forums comes with the community and discussion between other people. You can think of it just like a blog post and comment like a blog post with questions/ideas; the difference now is that you’ll likely get a lot more return conversation from me as well as other people.
I don’t really have any expectations for the forum, I miss helping people out so at bare minimum this can serve as a resource for newbies. You’ll notice browsing the course index that most of it right now is tailored at those with little to no experience in the industry. I plan on making some of the articles more advanced/practical, but any veteran in the industry knows that the cream of the crop tips are always kept secret. Beginners are easier to help out, and there’s more of them to help out. It’s a starting point.
For now, check out the articles and any questions about them you can make a forum name and ask away. I’ll probably pay for a little promotion here and there and just let things grow slowly.
