Programming Notice (no more affiliate links)

I'm trying to streamline things around here, because I have many very hectic months ahead of me, and I'd like to be able to continue posting 2-3 times a week. I quit the Amazon affiliate program today, so that means no more affiliate links of any kind on this blog. I have nothing against affiliate links - I just don't want to bother with them anymore. I believe that the links I have added to previous posts will still be functional (i.e. you can still click on them and get to a product page), but I will no longer get any revenue if you buy anything through them. I'm not going to go through all my old posts and remove all the disclosure notices, because that would take forever, so consider this a mega disclosure that there is nothing to disclose. I.e. there are now no affiliate links in any old or new posts.

I still might include the occasional invite/referral link from time to time, but those will be clearly labeled.

I'm also going to try to move to a MWF posting schedule. Some weeks it might only be MW or WF or MF. I want to be able to keep doing this, because I enjoy it, but I have to prioritize other things.

Anyway, I just like to try to be transparent about how things work on my blog, so I thought I would update. Let me know if there are any questions.


  1. Have you ever used Skimlinks? It's a lot more "set it and forget it" as far as affiliate programs go.

    1. I did! But I think I made about $2 a month from it, so it didn't seem worth it. And I'm too controlling to let it automatically link things for me. At this point I'm going to have the blog be 100% hobby so as not to distract me from other (less fun) paid work. :)
