As most of you know, I'm an Amazon Associate. When you, my readers, click on a hyperlinked book title, cd, image of a book cover, etc. and then proceed to purchase that item, I earn a small bit of pocket change. I also earn a referral fee when someone clicks through to Amazon and places an order for something even if I haven't linked to it. Last year I earned a whopping $150. Most of the earnings average somewhere under a dollar, but occasionally, someone will order a large ticket item (all of which I can view under my earnings/order reports). For example, last year I had orders for these items:
A History of Byzantine Literature ($7.08*)
Today, I discovered that someone has purchased a beautiful Canon EOS 5D Mark II 21.1MP Full Frame CMOS Digital SLR Camera (Body Only). This is not an inexpensive camera! My earnings amount to $107.56 for this single item!
I never know the identity of those who place orders through my blog, but I'd like to send out a huge thank you to the buyer of this camera. You've made my day! And, I hope you get great enjoyment out of your new camera!
