Miscellaneous Blogging and Life News

1.  I have more time to read so there will be less of a back log.

Yes, I know this is a long time coming but finally, finally after the summer rush at work in my little boom town I have time to read some more.  What this means for all of the authors counting on me is that I will be clearing my backlog a lot in the next few weeks.  Those that have been waiting the longest can expect some reviews in their inboxes very soon.

2.  I’m considering doing the Amazon Affiliate program.

Yes, I’m finally considering monetizing my blog to a certain extent.  Since I already post links to Amazon at the end of every review, why shouldn’t I be making money for the free promotion?  I know that it will be a long time until I start making anything substantial through the program, but at least it’s something, you know?  I may do a separate post on this, but if you’re reading this now please let me know your thoughts about the program in the comments.  Would you be comfortable with me doing this?  Do you have experience with the Affiliate program?

3.  I have decided to make attending BEA in 2015 a goal of mine.

I already did a post about this, but was rather non-committal about the whole thing.  But now I’ve decided that yes, I will be saving up and if all goes well, attending Book Expo America in 2015.  I hope some of you guys can join me there when the time comes!

4.  My off-topic birthday post is coming up in a few weeks.

Remember how last year on my birthday (October 13) I went completely off topic for just one day and wrote about bullying?  Well, this off-topic birthday article will be an annual thing so I just want everyone forewarned that yes, I won’t be talking about books and/or book related topics for one day out of the year.

So that’s about it for me.  What’s new with you guys?

    off topic posts are fine, it is nice to have a change. I thought about the amazon affilite programme too but actually not sure what you are meant to do with it.

    I don’t have an experience with the Amazon Affiliate program, but I don’t see what would be wrong with you participating. In fact, it really makes sense. It’s not like you will be standing there with a gun to people’s heads, forcing them to buy books through your affiliate links.
