When I came back to TE Land a couple of years ago and started the long process of re-building the business I had started laying the foundation for way back in 2007-2008, sometimes people asked what my new plan was.

Would I have another traffic exchange? Nope, I said. I said had no plans for another traffic exchange this time around. Thought I’d go in another direction this time with something else affiliate-related, but not a traffic exchange.

So I opened up Commission Scoop in May, and at the time I thought I was done with opening any other programs for a while. I’d launched the funnel program I’d been working on and planning for well over a year at that point, and thought I was through, at least for a while.

Then Brian “Scooter” Cullen, my other and rather talkative half who’s been DJ’ing for many years, started entertaining a portion of folks in the community on the fly with his DJ riffs. People seemed to like it, so he kept doing it occasionally, and it kept getting more and more popular.

Our friend and colleague Robert Arnold saw some potential in this, and he and Brian started talking and throwing some ideas around. They brought me into the mix and the three of us started brainstorming together, and Arnie dived into codeland for the next two and a half months.

It was kinda a case of the idea & opportunity just coming up out of the blue, so we just ran with it.

After spending pretty much the entire summer since late May on our secret project (which by the time it launched had probably been one of the worst-kept secrets in the industry for at least a month at that point, LOL), finally it was ready to open this past Monday.

I first got so behind last week getting ready for Monday, and then stayed so unbelievably busy since Monday (and had had next to NO sleep for most of the past two weeks) that it’s pretty much literally taken me this long to be able to even stop and catch my breath long enough to make a blog post.

I had decided Monday that I was so behind anyway I might as well let the affiliates get a good head start before I started heavily promoting myself – though I really didn’t intend for it to be almost a week’s head start, ha! And yesterday I finally, FINALLY, got to sleep until I felt like waking up for a change. Yay!

So at this point most of you have probably already been there and checked it out already, but just in case you haven’t, I wholeheartedly welcome you to see Sound Surf Live for yourself. The surfing & counter problems that were affecting a small percentage of members right after launch have been fixed since Monday afternoon, and it’s been rockin’ & rolling all week!

We’ve tried to make it fun and interesting, we’ve added some unique features you won’t find anywhere else (mobile surfing, audio ads users can purchase and upload, and more), and given it a custom design that’s so completely customized it looks like no other TE out there right now.

I get tired of joining new TE after new TE so I don’t very often anymore… but SSL is just the kind of unique TE that I look for and get really excited about as a new member. I hope y’all will too!

We’re pretty psyched and thrilled about Sound Surf Live. I hope you will be too. If you haven’t seen it yet, click here to check it out! (And have a super weekend too.) :-)
