Since moving my blog to this place, I've been invited to consider "monetizing" it; that is, to somehow earn money by adding links to commercial sites (such as Amazon and Ebay) and getting money -- we're talking cents, probably -- everytime someone clicks on these links from my blog.
Sweetie says I could actually make a little money doing this. "Lots of people read your blog, after all."
But would they then click on an icon for a commercial site? Not necessarily.
More importantly, would I -- someone who has a troubled relationship with retail to begin with -- want to encourage more conspicuous consumption by adding such links to my formerly non-commercial site?
I'd like to hear from readers who've "monetized" their blogs. How has it worked for you?
