Amazon links

I knew this blogging lark would make me rich. By putting a link to Amazon here, I've already amassed, in just over a year, £1.60 in referral fees. That's right - over ten pence a month! The thing is, once you are used to riches of this magnitude, you just want more, so I've signed up to Amazon's cunning links programme, which turns some of my words into links to Amazon products - e.g. Mike Tyson in the previous post - and probably this one too, now I've typed it. "My" links will still open in a new window. The Amazon ones are little inset boxes. Just off to put down the deposit on the luxury apartment...

Do you get paid when people click on those links, or only when they buy things as a result?

Over 10p a month!? You'll be taking early retirement then?

Only when they buy, Roy - otherwise, well, I'd be on some stratospheric figure like 30p a month...

Yes, anon - early retirement beckons...

Gosh - I'm kicking myself now. I knew I should have signed up!
