Hello friends and welcome to Think and Make Thursday! I hope you’re having a wonderful week. My oldest son started kindergarten this week – GULP! So this has been a busy and emotional week for us (and by us, I mostly mean I’m the emotional one – he did great!!) Checking out all the great ideas being shared at Think and Make Thursday was a fabulous distraction from missing him so much. You all have wowed me once again. I cannot wait to see what you’ve been up to this week.
Disclosure: This blog post contains affiliate links for products or services we think you’ll like. This means if you make a purchase from one of these links, we’ll make a small commission at no additional cost to you so we can keep the great ideas for the home coming your way. All opinions expressed are our own, derived from our personal experience.
Before you link up though, I have to make a quick announcement! One of my co-hostesses, Tasha from Designer Trapped in a Lawyer’s Body, has written an eBook called Affiliate Marketing for Bloggers. It is FULL OF STRATEGIES AND SECRETS that will teach you to maximize your affiliate sales! Unless you are positive you have fully maximized your affiliate sales, you will absolutely benefit from this book. You can check out all the details by clicking here!
I had an opportunity to read through this fantastic resource already. I think affiliate marketing is often an untapped or underutilized revenue stream for many bloggers, myself included. Tasha’s book on Affiliate Marketing for Bloggers helps demystify affiliate marketing and gives tangible ideas and recommendations any blogger can use to earn money. So often as bloggers we’re scared that if we link to products or services in our posts, we’ll scare readers away. Tasha gives real examples of how to share links to products or services in authentic ways readers actually appreciate. I can’t wait to put her strategies into action for my own blog and grow my income from affiliate sales!
Think and Make Thursday is a link party designed to share Bright Ideas for the home with you each week! For those of you who aren’t bloggers or who may be new to the link party concept, link parties are a great way for you to find hundreds of different ideas for the home all in one place. At link parties, bloggers share their latest and greatest DIY projects, home improvement projects, crafts, recipes, kids stuff and home-related tips.
