I’ve written a lot about affiliate marketing on this blog, and you might think from reading my various posts that I think it’s the only way to make money online.  That’s not the case, and in fact, it’s not even the only way that I make money online.  I have one site where I do direct retail – I actually put products in boxes and mail them to people.  It’s not my primary method of making money, but rather an offshoot of a hobby and I do it because I enjoy it.  It’s a nice diversion from my main method of earning money – affiliate marketing.
