When I asked a bit ago about the addition of an Amazon widget, the reader response was enthusiastic. So, today, I completed the application, was approved and Amazon will be starting on the blog within the next week or so.
I told them that I did not want advertisements, nor was I going to promote products myself. I only wanted Amazon to be accessible to my readers on my blog, as a convenience.
So, we'll see what they do. If it is intrusive or too commercial, I will have it taken off. But, hopefully, it will be just an access point for you to use Amazon when you are on the blog, if you wish.
