It has been almost 2 Weeks now since Commission Junction announced on 5/23/2006 their LMI P1 or Link Management Initiative Phase 1 (CJ Account required).It caused quite an uproar in the Affiliate Marketing Community and a lot of debate and speculation. There are still 2 more weeks before Phase I gets actually launched on 6/23, but a lot of stuff did happen already which made me decide to write a summary and my opinion why CJ is doing this.I will be proven wrong or right in the months to come. In either case, it will be an interesting time and there is a lot of pain to come. The overall effects of that can not be estimated, but no matter how it develops, it will have a lasting effect for the years to come.The CJ stated “The Link Management Initiative (LMI) was conceived in response to requests from our employees, advertisers and publishers” (“our (CJ) employees”? Is this a typo? shouldn’t it be spelled employer?). I guess this statement was not entirely correct because people had a hard time to find publishers or advertisers that applauded the announcement as something they were looking for and wanted to have.Sudden ImpactThe strongest and loudest criticism and rant came from the CJ Publishers (Affiliates) , because they are affected the most by CJ’s announcement.It was not all just screaming and yelling which a lot of marketing professionals consider a common trait of especially smaller publishers, when it comes to changes in this industry.[…]

There are still some minor issues I have to solve, but they are not affecting the Cumbrowski.com domain, nor the ConsumerMatch.com Shopping Portal.I am still not 100% certain, what the problem caused in the first place. I have some ideas, which I have to check a bit more. This little issues was just another one in a long chain of issues that pop-up out of nowhere recently which throws me a bit off with time lines for my planned projects. It is getting close to my vacation. I will be gone for 15 business days. I will leave during the next 2-3 weeks. The exact date is not set yet because a friend organizes free flights to Greece for me and another friend. This means, that I will take of in a matter of less than 24 hours. The Trip and the Time frame was already planned since last October. It will be the long overdue time off to get some sleep and all the work, personal and Immigration related issues out of my head to actually spend some time simply enjoying myself, a good time with friends among friendly people, good food, good music and a lot[…]
