Affiliate links

It's all about affiliate marketing...

Everywhere you go there's someone selling something. If you don't have your own product, you can always sell someone else's. They call it affiliate marketing. Basically you sign up for a free account with the product you want to sell and then you put links and ads on your blogs/websites and when people click the links, if they buy the product, you get a commission.

I figured I'd jump on the bandwagon, so here's my list of affiliate marketing links:

Multiplayer Games

I think one of the things we'll start seeing for the new year is more emphasis on multiplayer games, specifically in the casual game market.

I came across a great site -- come2play -- that offers people the ability to create multiplayer games using their open-source API, as well as create your own websites that leverage their widgets.

In about 10 mins. I set up my new multiplayer website: I was impressed with how easy it was to implement, and they even do a revenue sharing program ads.

Check it out and then go create your own multiplayer game website!

My new career online

Well, I'm taking the plunge and doing what I've always wanted to do... start my own online business(es).

I haven't quit my day job or anything like that, I'm just starting to expand my income by adding cool websites online that generate income.

So to start with, I've launched a couple of game sites: and

The idea behind these sites are to see what I can do to generate income from ads only.

I'm using adsense on one site, and adbrite on the other. I'm interested in seeing which one brings in more revenue. Another money-making element is Mochiads. I'm hosting Mochiads games and will get a small percentage of the revenue generated from game play. The advantage is that the developer who wrote the game gets paid, and the publisher (that's me) get's a little too. It's a win-win for everyone.

Too many gadgets

That's what people tell me. "iBrent, you have too many gadgets". Well, it's true. But they're so fun to play with! As a Flash platform developer I am always interested in the latest mobile devices that support Adobe Flash Player.

I have a Chumby, a Nokia n800, an Asus Eee PC, an XO laptop, and a T-mobile Dash. With all these devices, I have access to Flash Player 9, Flash Lite 2.1, and Flash Lite 3.0. This allows me to develop and test content that works on both desktop computers and mobile devices. I love it!

Mobile blogging

I'm typing this post from my Nokia N800. I'm using a bluetooth keyboard, (Think Outside The Box - Stowaway BT Keyboard). The keyboard is the perfect size, and there is only a slight delay from the keyboard to the N800.

What I like about this setup is it's portable and and fun to use. The only drawback is the screen is small can be difficult to read. You can zoom in on pages, but then you have to manipulate the scrollbars to see everything.

All in all, I think mobile blogging is the way to go.

Long time listener, first time caller...

Have you ever heard that on the radio before? I often wonder why people say that, and then I realized why when I made the first step to start this blog.

I'm nervous, anxious, and excited to be writing this blog. I think that's how most people feel when they call in to a radio show. I guess they say that because they don't want their first experience on the radio to be embarrassing. That's how I feel about this blog. I don't want my first blogging experience to be embarrassing, so as the title suggests, I'm a long time listener, first time caller.
