Leo Di Milo Launches “Idiot Affiliate” Blog

June 18th, 2007

Leo di Milo has launched a new blog called IdiotAffiliate.com that is quickly becoming a valuable resource of information for novice webmasters and affiliate marketers. I was an avid reader of his site DrunkOnLife.com back in the heyday of autosurfs and HYIP around 2-3 years ago, so I was pleasantly surprised to learn about his latest project. Here is an excerpt from an email newsletter that I received from him a few days ago:

Well, given the recent events of the surf world, I am sure that many of you are wondering what is next? I have to admit that I have been less than enthusiastic about this arena for many months now and like so many of the other veterans out there, are looking for other ways to make money that are not only more legitimate but that are less of a gamble.

A lot of people would have you believe that this is nothing more than something cyclical that happens every once in a while. I would have to say this though- over the last 4-5 years that I have been participating in HYIP’s and surfs, I have never seen such a radical change as what is taking place at this point. Six months ago, I was cautiously optimistic but now I think that if I stay in this arena, the rewards will be much slimmer than they have been in the past and the risks are much greater.

So, what do we do? I have built a site that I hope will help those of you who are looking for a more stable change make the switch from depending on others to depending on yourself. Will it be easy? The answer is no. BUT, nothing worthwhile in this world is ever easy.

My new site is called IdiotAffiliate.com and what it is is a primer for those of you who have wanted to build a website (much like drunk’s world) but never have because you couldn’t get past the “technical” aspects of building a site. I intend to help those of you interested into building your own site and monetizing your site (much like I do with drunk’s world). It won’t be easy. Competition is fierce. But the end result for some of you will be much greater potential for rewards than if you were simply giving your money away to an admin that would eventually scam you. In other words, the future is in your hands.

Building a website is easy. If it wasn’t I would never have stuck with this for so long. Over the past 4 years, I have managed to build a nice size subscriber list and make a decent living from websites. You can too. There are others out there that are making in excess of 10k a month doing what I do. Think about that…..

Although I have just recently been informed, it seems that the site has been built up quietly for the past few weeks; although I could not find an official archive link, I clicked back through the articles and discovered that there are already nearly one month’s worth of posts. The site has some nifty features that I would like to eventually incorporate into this blog, such as the recent posts section, nicely integrated AdSense, a word count and estimated reading time display for each post, and a visually pleasing layout. I also like the fact that the webmaster does not use the nofollow attribute for comments and has made the site very “newbie friendly” overall. I am looking forward to reading through all of the posts in more detail, making comments where appropriate, and probably learning a few things in the process.

UPDATE 7/01/08: Leo DiMilo is no longer maintaining either drunkonlife.com or idiotaffiliate.com, so I have had to remove the broken links. I am still subscribed to his list, however, and have found out that he is still posting about his Internet marketing endeavors at marketingprojectbible.com. He also owns many other smaller niche sites.
