It was a tough day to have the Super Bowl take place right as I am getting back into affiliate fatblogging, because this is a sacred holiday of over-consumption for me.
This year, I made a huge pot of chili with ground turkey, instead of ground beef (I think turkey tastes better than lean beef, and when it’s slow cooking, the turkey takes on the flavors and gets nice and moist).
Even after feeding the family, I had tons of chili left, so it makes for a good, quick diet compliant meal to heat up for lunch and dinner.
I am on Weight Watchers for my affiliate fatblogging efforts, and they already have some quick options for meals, like a bunch of Progresso soups, but it’s nice to have the variety.
I just signed on to Weight Watchers online to track progress and use their other resources.
During the sign-up process, there was a field for a promotional code. So I searched around for codes and ran into many affiliate sites with Weight Watchers on them.
I’ve got to say I was surprised by the caliber of a lot of these sites, since I’ve been rejected four times by their affiliate program.
I guess they don’t apply such strict standards to coupon sites, because they seem to embrace not only the good, but the bad and ugly, too.
Also, I was displeased as a customer with the experience going through the affiliates claiming to have deals like 25% off, because when I clicked through, it was the same deal I got by hitting the site organically.
Anyhow, I’ve been keeping up a habit of hitting the gym four days a week. I like to mix it up with walking a few miles, but it’s been below freezing for weeks (it’s snowing as I type this – I am so over the snow, though I can get some exercise late by shoving this stuff).
While I am at the gym, walking, or shoveling snow, I like to listen to affiliate marketing podcasts, or at least something tied to Internet marketing or general geekery.
In the past, I’ve struggled to find enough content, but we just added a bunch of shows to GeekCast.fm – subscribe to GeekCast.fm on iTunes to automatically get all of these podcasts on your iPod.
So, who else is in for the affiliate fatblogging revolution? I heard from Andrew Wee that he’s going to start doing something. Anybody else?
