Having a blog is always great, but when you’re not making revenue, the work required to keep that blog updated can bring out a lot of frustration. This is when most people turn to advertisements on their blog. I do have Google Ads on my Squidoo lenses, and I even thought of putting various ads up on my blogs. When I became an Amazon Associate though, any thought I ever had involving putting someone else’s ads on my blog simply disappeared.
Applying to be an Amazon Associate is easy, and you can get started here. I was able to put Amazon Products on my blog right when I applied. I was approved, and now many of my blogs have Amazon Links. You can see two examples here (Yugioh Philosophy) and here (The Lego Station).
As an Amazon Associate, you can talk about your hobbies, sell products, and not have to think about advertisements. Advertisements can be irrevelent, and they ultimately take people away from your website.
