Twas the Night before Christmas

‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house,
not an affiliate was stirring, not even at John Chow’s.
The commission checks were hung by the chimney with care,
in hopes that the IRS would soon not be there.

The web sites were tracking all snug in their server beds,
while visions of holiday traffic danced in their heads.
And the blog in it’s wordpress, and I in my cap,
had just settled our brains for a super affiliate nap.

When out of the laptop there arose such a clatter,
went to my blog to see what was the matter.
Opened the browser, and went through my cache,
refreshed the web page, and did not see flash.

The new blog design, was something to remember,
finished in time, by Unique Blog Designs in December.
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
but a Super Affiliate sleigh and eight blogging pioneers!

With a new blog design, so lively and quick,
I knew in a moment it must be the Super Affiliate.
More bloggers and readers, his subscribers they came,
and he whistled and shouted and called them by name:

“Now Shoemoney! Now John Chow!
Now, Shawn Collins and Jim Kukral!
On, John Cow! On, Nate Whitehill!
On, Darren Rowse and Amit Mehta!
To the top of the Alexa!
To the top of the Technorati!
Now count away! Count away!
Count away all!”

“Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night!”

  1. HAHA,

    and happy holidays to you and your family as well Zac.


  2. If I had kids, I would read them this story.

    And then they would grow up to be super affiliates and I wouldn’t have to worry about doing it myself.

  3. Hey, what a cool post! And it (almost) rhymes too! I think you go Homer next time and do it in iambic pentameter.

    Cheers, Jay
