Searching Out Affiliate Programs and Links

One of the biggest questions I see about Starting A Blog is, “Can you really make money from blogging?” The answer is yes, but you will have to put some work into it. That is the step I am working on right now with this blog – seeking out and obtaining affiliate status with companies that will be of use to my readers, as well as earn the much needed revenue I need to make this a successful blog.

I loathe filling out forms. I hate data entry with a passion. Signing up for affiliate programs is, more often than not, pages and pages of forms. Then a smart person would at the very least, quickly scroll though the terms and conditions. After that, make sure to validate your email. Do it again when the link is expired. Re-login. Again. And again.

… My ADHD brain turned off three sentences ago. Perhaps this is one of the many reasons why I have several half finished projects laying around.

It is not that I don’t want to get it done and functioning. I do. I really really do. The problem is the process overwhelms me. The almost mindless energy it takes to complete the processes in the beginning gets me almost every time.

But I am determined to do it this time, so I guess we will see.
