So a long time ago in a galaxy far away a young Jedi sign up as an affiliate with Amazon with the dream of referring people to products. They would buy thousands of dollars worth of products on Amazon and our young hero would be compensated and live happily ever after.

Reality check time.

Nothing of the sort ever happened.

However a few months ago I did put an Amazon link on a page or two and a few people clicked that link.

And as it turns out I think I made a few pennies from those clicks.

I was under the impression that I may only make money with Amazon if people actually purchased something through an affiliate link, not just for clicks.

Well there is one way to test this.

I am putting up some Amazon affiliate links for various minimalist living books and if you are so inclined please click on the links so that I can see if this is indeed the case. I am not suggesting to buy anything but feel free to do so if you see something that you like.

I would also love your feedback.

Voluntary Simplicity: Toward a Way of Life That Is Outwardly Simple, Inwardly Rich

Tiny Homes: Simple Shelter

Tiny House Floor Plans: Over 200 Interior Designs for Tiny Houses (Volume 1)

The Joy of Less, A Minimalist Living Guide: How to Declutter, Organize, and Simplify Your Life

So again this is just an experiment with Amazon to see if people clicking on the links actually credits my account.

  1. I just clicked on all of the links you posted. I tend to have alot of luck selling items on EBay. Good way to get rid of “stuff” when you are downsizing and moving to a smaller home.

  2. Ha! That’s so funny! Me too! I signed up WAY back and finally went through my 7541 old emails to find the acceptance and get started with it. We must be on the same planetary alignment

  3. I clicked 🙂 I am on the way to building my first little home, exciting stuff even in such early stages so thank you for these links, I will peruse some more!

  4. I’m really inspired together with your writing abilities as neatly as with the format on your weblog. Is this a paid topic or did you modify it yourself? Anyway stay up the excellent high quality writing, it’s rare to see a great blog like this one these days.

    1. Wow. Thanks for the compliment. It is a free blog and free theme from wordpress. I read some other blogs and they are soooooo funny and well written. I feel that my writing is very bland. Thanks for the compliment.
