I was tagged by PepperJam Head Honcho Kris Jones as part of the “What Magazines Do You Read?” (and have a titbit for niche researching Internet Marketers).
I don’t read many magazines, reading most of my content and feature content online.
Besides reading the print edition of Singapore’s major English daily, The Straits Times, which comes with weekly tech, fashion and lifestyle “magazines”, on the rare occasion, I check out:
- Revenue (I read the online digital edition when I can)
- Skymall catalogue found on most domestic flights
- Tabloids like US, People
Tabloids and rag mags are a good opportunity to (more…)
I first got to know of Laura Alter from PlanetAndrea (aka Andrea Schoemaker).
Laura attended the inaugural Elite Retreat and has been very successful in her brick-and-mortar computer business and is also owner of the popular NotebookForums site too.
Besides having 3 sweet kids (her 5 year old plays a mean game of warcraft), she’s pretty tech savvy.
Check out her blog:

Laura’s got one of the prettiest WordPress templates I’ve seen (more…)
I just touched down in Singapore earlier today and although the 14 hour time difference is causing major havoc to my body clock, I figured this is the perfect opportunity to reflect on Affiliate Summit West and the takeaways from having flown 20+ hours around the world to attend.
Thanks to Shawn Collins and Missy Ward who conceptualized Affiliate Summit and have been grown it from strength-to-strength at about 200 participants in the first AS in 2003 till more than 2,000 at the recently concluded ASW.
It was a great opportunity to meet up face-to-face with a number of the online marketers I’d been reading and talking with over the past few months like ShoeMoney, Scott Jangro, Kris Jones, PlanetAndrea, Jon Fisher from WickedFire and Joe Whyte.
Becky “Webmoxy” Ryan was a friendly and intelligent person to talk to (even though I was deep in thought and seemed to have unintentionally ignored her when she called out a few times).

It’s about 16 hours before I head off on my long flight to Affiliate Summit West.
I’ve been talking to the WickedFire folks and we’re psyched about meeting up.
I’ve planned out my itinery and will likely be spending more time networking and attending sessions, compared to drinking and clubbing.
There are a number of networking parties including one hosted by oneNetworkDirect and Wynn Las Vegas at Wynns’ TRYST nightclub which features a private lagoon. If there’s one phobia I have, it’s dancing in public.
We’ll see how this pans out.
Besides visiting the exhibit halls, I’m planning to (more…)
When it rains, it pours. I got tagged twice today with this meme making the rounds by PlanetAndrea and CasThompson.
Like a game of ‘Pass the Message’ which you play in a big group, depending on who you check out, the meme is known as:
At first look, it seems like Shoemoney and DaveN are on to the right thing. Then again, it could mean that DaveN is good at following formats after being tagged by the Shoemeister.
So this freeform means you have the right to rename the meme (Master Rename Rights so to speak).
Instructions: (Especially for those I’m tagging)
From what I gather, you are supposed to:
- Disclose 5 personal things about yourself
- Tag another 5
victims friends to pass this labor of love to.

It’s 10 more days till Affiliate Summit West (ASW) and I’m stoked at the opportunity. (Incidentally, the event is sold out)
It’ll be my first trip to the US in about 4 years and I’m planning to hit Fry’s, Best Buy, get my fill of prime rib and margaritas in Vegas.
Here’s my to do list for ASW:
- Attend the great sessions planned
- Meet and greet the affiliate managers present, as not many have a point of presence in Asia.
- Finally put a face to many of the personalities whose blogs I’ve been reading, or emailing, or catching their web radio programs, or whose forums I’ve been participating on.
- Get a Shoemoney t-shirt (one of the new black one maybe?)
- Get some nice WickedFire merchandise at their booth
- Catch some great parties
This is one of the few times I’d be heading halfway around the world (I’ll be battening down the hatches in Asia to work on a couple of major projects once I get back).
So far, I look forward to the opportunity to meet and greet with Shoemoney, Jon F, Anik Singal, PlanetAndrea, Chris Hooley, Scott Jangro, Robyn Tippins, Shawn Collins, Missy Ward, the LunarPages blogging team (including Joe Whyte) and it looks like Pepperjam will have a good presence there too.
I might be approaching some of you to do interviews, so you are forwarned, and perhaps forearmed.
If you’re planning to interview any of the folks at ASW, here’s a couple of pointers (more…)
