Important Blog Update

Hello everyone!

At the end of July, I posted a blog entry called Read Me informing my readers that I was going to use Amazon Affiliates as an advertiser for my blog, which would hopefully start generating some revenue for me. I wanted to let folks know that I have recently cancelled my agreement with them and removed Amazon ads from my blog. There were some serious issues in regards to their customer service and process for payment that I was unable to resolve with them. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who supported me in that VERY trying endeavor.

However, I decided to give the advertising thing one more try and joined Google AdSense over a week ago and so far it has been a very positive experience. I don't want to go into too much detail as to how it works as there are contractual issues in regards to blog authors promoting AdSense and I really don't want to violate those terms and get booted! The fact that they do have terms of proper conduct is a very good thing in itself.

In regards to the blog itself, I have gotten some very good feedback from my readers and I would like to encourage you all that if you read a blog post that you particularly like and/or think someone else might like, please feel free to share it! At the bottom of each blog post, there are several small boxes which allow you to share that entry by a variety of ways such as Facebook, Twitter, e-mail, etc. I have found that when people "share" entries (especially on their Facebook page), the blog's exposure and pageviews increases tremendously.

Again, thank you for taking the time to read and comment on the blog and for continuing to inspire me to continue my passion!
