I just joined Amazon’s Affiliate program and wanted to let everyone know. This means that if you click a link to a product on Amazon from my site, I’ll get a kickback from Amazon. I seriously doubt I’ll make money from this scheme (scheme used in the British way to simply mean plan). BUT….over the past 2 months, I have sold 5 kindles for Amazon from simply telling people about mine. My 4% of those sales would have bought me 1 or 2 kindle books.
Don’t worry…I’m not going to start advertising on the site. I’m doing this, like I said, because I’ve sold several kindles for Amazon recently and I want a nice simple way to build Amazon product links. I also want to review books from Amazon that I’ve read on my Kindle. Most are free–or at least I got them for free–but why not get something.

[Update 12-02-2010 07:15:38] I’m changing how I do book reviews. Instead of simply posting a screenshot of the cover, I’m going to begin using an iframe. It will do the same thing, show the cover, but I think it will make it clearer that I’ll make a few pennies if someone clicks my links to get to amazon.
