Time to Monetize

Along with the major project I alluded to a few days ago (leave your email here to learn more later), I am also going to try and increase the value this blog has to readers.

One way to motivate myself to do things readers will like, and want to come here to see, is to monetize the blog more than I have.

By that, I mean things that hopefully will serve the reader, not cost them any money, and put a few cents in my pocket.  I've reinstated Google Adwords advertising again.  And I have just signed up to be an Amazon Affiliate.

If you click an affiliate link, it won't cost you any money, but will take you to an Amazon page for that item.  If you buy it, I get a small commission.

Many of the sites you go to now have affiliate programs.  I want to be 100% open about this, so I've created a page listing the companies I have relationships with.  And I pledge, to never recommend a product I benefit from you buying, if I do not believe in it.

If you go to that page now, you will see some products I use and recommend.

If this all buys me one Lo Mein lunch a week, I'll be thrilled.
