T.LY Affiliate Program

I’m a big fan of affiliate programs for the products I use and recommend. It’s a great way to make some extra cash if you have a popular website, a significant social media presence, or a large YouTube Channel. Some people earn a living just from affiliate programs! I’ve been using Amazon Affiliates since the creation of this blog, and it’s a win-win for bloggers and readers. Amazon Affiliates was how I made my first money online when my first post made over $500 in a few days back in 2015.

T.LY is one of the top link management platforms, and I just added an affiliate program to help grow awareness.

  • You can earn a 20% commission for every T.LY customer you refer for the first three months.
  • The cookie will last for 60 days. As long as your referrals come back within those 60 days and convert to a paying account, you’ll still earn the revenue on that sale.
  • We have an affiliate dashboard where you can view your total visitors, leads, and conversions. You’ll also be able to see how much commission you’ve earned.
  • You will be notified, by email, whenever you earn a new commission. The payments will be made monthly through PayPal.

Block Fake Disposable Email Addresses

If you run a website that allows account signups, you’ve probably faced abuse from fake users, abusive users, fraudsters, and other malicious actors. If you look at their email addresses, you may have noticed a pattern among these users. Fake users tend to use disposable emails and temporary email services that allow abusers to quickly cycle through new emails with unique address names across thousands of domains. These services make it possible with a simple mouse click to generate a brand new email address.

Since the creation of T.LY URL Shortener, I’ve had to learn a ton about how to stop malicious users on the internet. One part of this was preventing users from signing up using disposable email addresses. Fortunately, there is a Laravel package that handles this functionality. I got a quick solution released that auto-updated from an ever-growing list of fake email address domains. Read More

Weather Extension Updated

I am excited to announce Weather Extension has been updated to the latest browser extension manifest v3. Manifest V3 is part of a shift in the philosophy behind how extensions approach end-user security and privacy. Manifest V3 focuses on the three pillars of that vision: privacy, security, and performance, while preserving and improving our foundation of extensions. Overall these changes will make the extension more secure for the end-user.

Manifest v3 required a complete rewrite of many features, including the background task of how Weather Extension updates the temperature badge icon. Most of the issues should be resolved, but if you experience any issues, please let me know at [email protected]

Dark Sky Shutting Down

Back in March 2020, Dark Sky announce they were acquired by Apple and were shutting down their API and site. This has caused a lot of confusion around the future of Weather Extension. Dark Sky API and the website will be shut down on March 31st, 2023.  My plan is to keep the extension running using other APIs and incorporate Apple’s new Weather Kit API that will offer similar data to Dark Sky.
