As I announced earlier this year, my 11 year old son, Evan, wants to make an affiliate website.
Initially, it was quite a battle of wills to get him to simply write a couple basic articles that I could use for the site. The summer came and went in a flash – and he still didn’t have a site to show for it.
So, I came to a conclusion: I have to show him the site. No more talk. No more dreaming the “what if’s” and “imagine if it could do this”. I had to give him something to look at.
And it worked!
Now that he’s seeing the site come together, he’s more excited, more engaged — and providing content without my prodding, than I had ever dreamed.
On Saturday night, he was up late and I found him working on his “2011 Video Game Gift Guide” until almost 1 AM!
Then, on Monday evening, he was late for bed working on a list of free online video games that he plays.
(This is a very proud Affiliate-Dad Moment, folks!)
The website he’s making is “VideoGameKid.com” and it’s still very, very, very not ready for prime time. But it’s a great start!
I’ve got quite a few videos already up and available for free members now.
