A Grateful Thank You – Amazon Associates Blog Income

This is a post to say a big thank you to all of you who’ve helped fund this blog by buying your stuff through our Amazon Associates link. We know some of you personally, but most of you we don’t, so can’t say thanks face to face. We’re having to do it virtually instead!

Amazon now pay us about £95 a month, which went towards a 1kW pure sine inverter this month, woo hoo!

We started using the Amazon Associates links in March 2012. It took a full year before we accrued enough for Amazon to pay us anything at all, and we’d already been blogging for over a year before that. Since then we’ve written 1362 blog posts (not counting information pages), and have earned a total of £2883, before tax, over a period of five years.

It’s not exactly a get rich quick scheme (is there such a thing?), this here blogging lark, but we really appreciate that income. We know some of you go out of your way to give it to us, and it does make a difference to our lives.

We like Amazon Associates as it feels like a fair way to generate some income:

  • The cost to anyone buying though a link is the exactly same as if they buy direct.
  • We can recommend the items we think are worth your hard-earned.
  • If someone clicks on our link, and then buys anything at all, we still get a commission.

Thanks again folks. Jay and Ju

  1. This is a great post. It’s lovely to see that you are being rewarded for your efforts. I actually haven’t been on the site for a few weeks, as I’ve been saving up all your home posts to read in one go (I blog binge lol) but I literally just came on here to find your Amazon link as I’m about to make a chunky purchase and wanted you to have the referral fee, sinde I can’t get cashback on it.

    Serendipity.
