Amazon Associates Account Update!

When I restarted my blog, I thought it would be great to independently review items we currently use, and pass that information on to our friends and family.

Like this Lego Set my son is hoping to get for his birthday {maybe you could all pitch in, grandparents?} 😉

Since we, like many other families, live within a budget, I thought a great way to justify spending time on blogging, and thereby writing practice and finding my online writing community, would be to sign up for an Amazon Associates account. It’s a win-win for me and for my friends, and family, who are interested in the products we use and who also have Amazon Prime for {many!} free deliveries.

I had not noticed, but several months ago I received a message from Amazon stating that my Amazon Associates Account had been disabled due to low traffic.

Ugh.

Well, I understood. I found that my desire to get residual income was not as great as my desire to develop my writing community on-line.

However, with many of our remodeling purchases made on-line {hello Soaking Tub!}, school supplies, writing supplies, and the like, I wanted to reopen the possibility of earning a little mad cash to splurge on trying new homeschool items, reading new books, and find a way to pay for it without the money coming out of our day-to-day budget.

It will take me a few weeks, I’m sure, to go back through all my posts and update them with the correct Amazon Associates links. I had a friend email me saying she was interested in some of the books we were reading, but they weren’t displaying on her screen. I failed to realize when Amazon Associates closed my account, all the images were gone with it.

YIKES!

My apologies for not recognizing that — I’ll double check in a “private window” to ensure what I see is the same as what you, the reader, sees. Since my computer stores cookies, I didn’t realize the images were gone!

With NaNoWriMo, and Poetry Month, within blinking distance, the time has come to freshen up my site.

Who knows — maybe I’ll even earn enough to go ad-free on WordPress!

Yipee!
