Yahoo Affiliate Check

Yahoo Affiliate check dialogue

I just received this from the Yahoo Affiliate Team:

Hi SMO Blogger,

We wanted to let you know that your commission payments from Yahoo!, will be delayed one month. Rest assured that this only affects your Yahoo! commissions and all other advertiser commission amounts remain unaffected. Commission Junction has addressed this issue and we are currently working on a resolution to make sure this is an isolated incident.

We are sorry for any inconvenience this has caused you and appreciate your patience.

Yahoo! Affiliate Team

Did you or did you not receive your Yahoo Affiliate check? Well, I have been a member of the Yahoo Affiliate program for years, making good money with other programs like Google AdSense, Commission Junction and Linkshare. But… Yahoo hasn’t panned out for me in terms of revenue. I keep waiting to see some results before I invest time in testing programs. What about you, do you use Yahoo Affiliate?

Why Blogging is Better than Speaking

Blogger speaking

I talk a lot more than I blog. But, I’d like to change that. Here’s why:

  • 100% Control
  • No one can detect your accent
  • You don’t get interrupted
  • You approve comments
  • You establish a record
  • You can do it with a big ol cigar in your mouth
  • Google will find you

1&1internet – Hosting Suckage

1&1Internet Web Hosting Screen Capture

Are you hosting your blog with 1&1internet? This dandy of a hosting outfit also known as 1and1.com just might allow you to open up a support ticket if you are currently blogging on their servers. Or, perhaps you’d be interested in taking a gander at the 1and1internet Web site to see what products they offer? If you’re lucky, you can have a chance at purchasing one of their products. Or can you?


Here’s the error message I received from 1and1internet at the order.1and1.com page:

Service Temporarily Unavailable
The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to maintenance downtime or capacity problems. Please try again later.
Apache Server at order.1and1.com Port 80

If a leading global blog hosting company like 1&1internet cannot even host their own order page, what’s the world coming to?

Is Dosh Dosh Dead?

Dosh Dosh Tombstone

I am one of many who enjoyed reading the DoshDosh.com blog written by social media poweruser DoshDosh/MakiMaki.

DoshDosh regularly blogged in detail about everything from making money online with Google AdSense to case studies. The frequency at which he turned out above average posts was remarkable and quite unmatched. Okay, doubters, tell me who matched DoshDosh/Maki? I’m listening. He was the best.

From the about page of www.doshdosh.com:

Dosh Dosh is a blog offering internet marketing and blogging tips, alongside social media strategies. Best consumed by bloggers, entrepreneurs, web publishers, marketers, freelancers and small business owners.

His Popularity? 34,000+ RSS Subscribers and large numbers of followers on major social networks.

He disappeared.

DoshDosh, aka Maki or MakiMaki has not dagg, stumbled, sphunn or tweeted in a while–that while being longer for social media denizens.

So what happened to Dosh Dosh? He’s either moved on and not active anymore, aka burned out. Or…

Is Dosh Dosh Dead?

While, I am not one to wax morbid, I noticed that one blogger speculated that Dosh Dosh was dead. Let’s look at Dosh Dosh/Maki around the web on various social media sites where he lives/lived.

Has Dosh Dosh Updated his Blogging Software?
Ah, but I know one sure way to discern if Dosh Dosh/Maki is still alive. If he is alive, he would have updated his blog software as any good blogger would, no? So, I checked and DoshDosh.com is runing WordPress 2.8.4 which is not the current version of WordPress, yet not very old. The release date of WordPress 2.8.4, a security release was August 12, 2009, which predates the September 15th Twitter post, the last known communication which Dosh Dosh/Maki made with the social media community. So, this doesn’t really help. We are still stuck with not being able to show that he was alive any later than September 12th.

Dead? Or is DoshDosh aka Maki a victim of social media burnout?

Dosh Dosh, this is not intended as an obituary. If you are still there, please do not take this post as mere link bait but as a plea to make yourself known. In honesty, there are many of your fans out here who miss your thoughtful posts and would like to hear something from you, even if it’s just a quick post to let us know you are alive.

Update: He’s alive! I am happy to report that this post coincided almost precisely with the reappearance of Maki on Twitter and a few fresh posts on DoshDosh.com. Still no activity on Digg for some time now. But, anyways, we’re glad to know you’re alive. If anyone knows the reason behind the lengthy disappearance, please post.

Finding a WordPress Theme Developer

The WordPress LogoI spent about a day looking for WordPress theme developers, filtering through their qualifications and portfolios to see if they had the ability to design a WordPress Theme of the sort I wanted. I’d tried several WordPress developers in the past with mixed results. The biggest complaints I have are that they are either slow or do a poor job with the aesthetics. Well, I looked through the entire Automattic list that I found at:


I figured these should be the best of the best, getting an Automattic listing. I went through almost the entire list and found thirteen candidates whose work I liked. I contacted them all.

What were the results of my inquiries?

Only 5 of these Automattic listed WordPress devs got back to me. Of the five, one developer was kind enough to tell me he was too busy to meet my schedule and refer me to a friend. A second was outlandishly expensive (I’d rather have purchased a sports car). A third was reasonably priced but failed in being punctual. Two turned out great! So, I went through so many many developers just to find the two developers who were qualified and reasonably priced. It took about a day.

Yeah, it was worth it.
