    Hi all,

    I've been part of this forum for a while - more of a reader than a poster. My background: I've been programming since I was 7 years old for a total 17 years (71% of my life). I have a degree in engineering, and I run a startup telco in Australia.

    I dipped my toe in IM at the start of this year, building about a dozen properties to monetise via SEO - however I got raped by Google algorithm updates. Before that, I experimented with ad-ja****g and cook**-st*****g, however this was too much for my risk appetite.

    I'd like to say hi to everyone reading. If anyone has any great ideas and needs a JV partner great in software, throw a PM my way.

    Happy IMing! :)

    Agreed! Feel free to contact myself for any inquiries you have. Although I may not be as skilled, I've come from a sales career and am happy to help.

    +1 for being an Aussie :D sorry to hear your sites got slapped but you are not alone, even if you missed the slap ebay and some others inc amazon are now almost a total waste of time for affiliates. I have seen some sites profits dwindle recently by almost 80% on ebay like I mean ffs.. Part of the game though especially when they are getting hit like everyone else on the bottom line..

    Well, since George bumped your intro and I hadn't chimed in yet: Welcome to BHW! You've got the skills to do great in IM. Wish you all the best.

    Also, welcome to BHW George. I hope we can help both Aussies do your best in IM.
