Companies have wildly-varying criteria for accepting affiliates. Amazon, for example, didn't even want to know what kind of website we had; they wanted us, and it was mutual. I can't help it - I love Amazon. Camping World looked us over and gave us a pass. Fine, Camping World, because we bought our Travasak from someone else. Hurts, doesn't it?
So, when I applied to Audible.com, I braced myself for rejection. After all, this is the company whose name is uttered by Ira Glass himself. I was reaching for the Glass ring. A week went by without word, and I knew. I've lived through worse than this. Then, we were accepted.
