In Which I Sell Out and Want a Camera

So, yes, I've signed up with Amazon Affiliates. I tried Adsense, but I was always getting ads for swimming pools and flip flops; not really the type of thing I write about on my site. Another plus is that if I find a book that is really rockin' I can link to it on the site. I've linked to Knitting Rules by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee (I can't tell you how much I truly LOVE this book) and might add a few more links in the future. So yes, I've sold out. But I figure if I can augment our household income by advertising books and items that are really great, why not?

I ask you, if the Who can do it, why can't I?

In the "I Want It" category, I have added a Holga camera. These are cheap (they start at $30 and the highest is $100 - and this is a 3D camera with 2 lenses) 120 and 35 mm cameras that are manufactured in China and were originally meant for lower income Chinese (so that they could have a camera). But then people from other countries discovered them and found that they take the most amazing pictures. I want the 35mm version simply because the film is easier to handle than 120 film.

They allow you to play with exposure times, focus, etc. and have fish eye lenses, filters, and other accessories that you can buy to add to your camera. I kind of miss my old 35mm and the thrill that I got when I went to the drugstore to pick up my photos and see what I got. So I'm going to request one from my husband for Christmas. I'll keep you updated!

I've always loved that album cover! And don't worry about selling out! I think it's important to do what we want on our blogs, instead of being worried that others will think that we've "sold out". Let me know how much you make from it, if you don't mind. I'd love to know if it's a profitable outlet.

Those photos are amazing- I can see why you would want that camera! I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!
