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!

Watch me build VideoGameKid.com for my son - his first Affiliate Website!

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!

As part of my new AffPlan Training Series, I’m documenting the entire process!
