Just reading through this thread and I do know where you are coming from with information overload.
Back in the day when I did start buying info products (about 3 years after I actually started), I was buying so many it was like an addiction. I think I have spent at least $50k on info products over the last few years.
But there is a little difference with me. Most info products that I've purchased, well at least half of them, have had a significant impact on my business. I've been able to use what I learn and I think that is the problem with some of you. If you buy a few good info products, you should be earning hundreds a week already, then the next product you buy should help you earn more and so on.
Very soon info products seem very in expensive and just part of running and growing your business (an investment).
However, you shouldn't have a stack of them and still be struggling to make ends meet.
That's a sign that you either are buying bad info products, or aren't implementing them effectively.
I figured out reasonably early on that when it comes to buying info products, that I'm usually the guy who will get the most out of it out of all the customers. I looked at John Reese's traffic secrets 1.0 back in the day and thought, man that's $1000, that's a rediculously high amount of money. But I did buy it and I'd have to say that I'd be one of the few who really used it to full effect. It's hard for me to say how much I made out of what I learnt there, but I'm sure my income at least doubled that year. Lots of guys learnt it all in 'theory', but I was one of those guys who didn't settle for having the knowledge. My goal is to use it and use it as quickly and as effectively as I can.
Otherwise you forget what you learn and you don't use it.
You need to foster a mindset of action and making sure you implement what you learn. Don't procrastinate. Write down your goals and targets and see them every day and make sure you move closer to them each day. Don't move further away by adding more tasks than you can handle.
I know I'm rambling here. I'm just saying that you need to spend more time implementing what you learn. And to do that you need to develop a solid overall picture of what your plan for success is. And you should try not to add too much to your plan as you want it to be simple rinse and repeat type model.
Perhaps Affiloblueprint will be that plan, perhaps it doesn't fit into your plan, if it doesn't perhaps there are some great free lessons here at affilorama that will help you.
The MOST IMPORTANT thing that you can do for yourself right now is to write up a blueprint for yourself, include checkboxes next to each task. And follow it through to completion.
Don't keep putting up unfinished sites. And don't create low quality sites either. It pays not to be lazy.
Just focus on teaching yourself to spend your time wisely and by that I mean by spending more time implementing your plan than shopping for opportunities.
Yes I do have offers in my emails that you get from me, but of course I don't expect you to buy all of them. There are thousands of people on my list. Some of the products I recommend will be perfect for you and will help you in your business, others won't be, but will be perfect for other people on my list. Some people like me who are further ahead in their online businesses will be able to make use of more products because they have more resources and more ability to implement more stuff.
The thing is that you need to pick and choose what is right for you and get it when the time is right that you can use it (not when it is going to gather dust till some magical time in the future when you have time).
Anyway, that's my 2 cents, I'm tired, it's 2:26am here and I've been up working on this launch so I hope I don't sound too brash here, I'm just tired :)
I wish you all much success.
