Not only has Google decided to close down the Google Affiliate Network (GAN), it seems they also decided to crack the whip on sites that accept guest posts, saying they are part of link schemes.  So to abide by the almighty Google’s rules, I set all guest posts links on this site to include “rel=nofollow” and decided I need to start writing more of my own content.  And you missed seeing my mug every Friday, right?

Kim Rowley wearing ShareASale shirt

This tshirt from Shareasale (SAS) that I’m wearing today is currently one of my favorite free t-shirts I’ve gotten.  Shareasale is notorious for handing out tshirts packaged as stars at their booths in the Affiliate Summit exhibit halls. Now sure if they offered it to me or I stole it from their table as ASW13 in Vegas was a bit of blur.  I’m still waiting for Shareasale to make a yellow version (Philly, maybe?), although I’ve grown partial to this light turquoise color.  Of course the mask on it reminds me that I missed their masquerade party in Vegas, boo.

Anyway, in full disclosure, I am an affiliate of Shareasale, but they absolutely, positively did not influence this blog posting in any way.  And I sincerely hope some of the GAN merchants migrate over to SAS. 🙂

Have a good weekend!
