I recently did an interview with the famous affiliate marketing expert Murray Newlands at murraynewlands.com. You can get to know a bit more about me by reading through the interview. This is what I had to say:
Tell me about your Blog?
Ninety Nine Ways is a blog on ways of making money online as well as offline. I also write about things that people can do in their everyday lives to try and save themselves a few more dollars without changing the quality of their life. Why do I write about this stuff?
