Well, who would have thought that trying to have a blog would wind up being not so simple?

I had entertained getting into the affiliate programs of companies to help bring in passive income to pay for hosting and other blog related costs. The biggest one being Amazon. The truth is, not enough traffic was driven to Amazon through the affiliate account, so Amazon closed it. I probably won’t entertain anything like that again unless I’m affiliated with something in which I truly believe. I removed all the affiliate disclosures and pages, but the original links for some products are still there and send you to the product on Amazon’s site, it just doesn’t benefit us if you make a purchase.
There you have it. Some complications to having a blog introduced by others and some by me.
I happened back to a blog that I used to read years ago. https://zenhabits.net It was one that I originally modeled the site after: simple, clean, uncluttered. As I tried to start using the blog to possibly build income, I began cluttering it up. Stupid me. I suppose I need to get back to basics. So goes the saying, “Don’t dance with the devil. You won’t change the devil, the devil will change you.”
I have to head back to work at midnight tonight. Not looking forward to that schedule change.
