I like your blog and posts. I watched a bunch of your videos in that "retaliation" article and I enjoyed watching them. Let me know if you'd be interested in signing up for our affiliate program www.gianttennis.com/affiliates. I think you could be making some money on your blog and youtube videos by posting our affiliate link on there.
