Guess what, guys? My blog made money! Well, it made Amazon (http://www NULL.amazon NULL.com) referral fees. It was for the second quarter, so it was in April.Â I made $5.00!Â How exciting is that?Â Thanks to my faithful readers and random wandering googlers. I get paid in Amazon gift certificates, so it has to reach a certain amount before I actually get to use it for anything, but hey, I was pretty gratified that after several years of being an Amazon associate I finally made money!
I usually only link to products (mostly books) that I want or like, but maybe I’ll stick some random-ish Amazon links next to my Google (http://www NULL.google NULL.com) ads on the sidebar.Â I’m not worried too much about being too mercenary, because no one clicks the Google (http://www NULL.google NULL.com) ads – which is okay, really. My website has always really been sort of an experiment to see what happens if one quietly goes about his or her business on the internet.Â Over the past few years,Â some interesting things have happened, including being hacked and having really neat commenters!(http://www NULL.linkwithin NULL.com/)
