Have You Ever Tried Amazon Affiliate Marketing?

Hey 3.5 readers.

I probably won’t because I think my main goal has to be to get more books self-published and if there’s any money in this crapfest of an enterprise I have here, it’s in that, but just curious, have any of you ever done any Amazon affiliate marketing?

I have a lot of tech toys in BQB HQ and figure it wouldn’t hurt to do an occasional review about the stuff I use.  I am usually looking for blog post ideas anyway….and if there’s a way to make a few bucks then maybe it’s worth a go.

Only problem is my stats aren’t that high so I doubt it would be worth it.

Top Ten Quotes from Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad

1371251154

#1 – “We live as we dream – alone.”

#2 – “I don’t like work–no man does–but I like what is in the work–the chance to find yourself. Your own reality–for yourself not for others–what no other man can ever know. They can only see the mere show, and never can tell what it really means.”

#3 – “The mind of man is capable of anything.”

#4 – “Droll thing life is — that mysterious arrangement of merciless logic for a futile purpose. The most you can hope from it is some knowledge of yourself — that comes too late — a crop of inextinguishable regrets.”

#5 – “You know I hate, detest, and can’t bear a lie, not because I am straighter than the rest of us, but simply because it appalls me. There is a taint of death, a flavor of mortality in lies – which is exactly what I hate and detest in the world – what I want to forget.”

#6 – “I have wrestled with death. It is the most unexciting contest you can imagine. It takes place in an impalpable greyness, with nothing underfoot, with nothing around, without spectators, without clamor, without glory, without the great desire of victory, without the great fear of defeat, in a sickly atmosphere of tepid skepticism, without much belief in your own right, and still less in that of your adversary.”

#7 – “Like a running blaze on a plain, like a flash of lightning in the clouds. We live in the flicker.”

#8 – “Anything approaching the change that came over his features I have never seen before, and hope never to see again. Oh, I wasn’t touched. I was fascinated. It was as though a veil had been rent. I saw on that ivory face the expression of sombre pride, of ruthless power, of craven terror–of an intense and hopeless despair. Did he live his life again in every detail of desire, temptation, and surrender during that supreme moment of complete knowledge? He cried in a whisper at some image, at some vision–he cried out twice, a cry that was no more than a breath:
The horror! The horror!”

#9 – “They were conquerors, and for that you want only brute force–nothing to boast of, when you have it, since your strength is just an accident arising from the weakness of others.”

#10 – “Even extreme grief may ultimately vent itself in violence–but more generally takes the form of apathy.”
