Hold Page One: Woman Earns Money With Blog
My friends at Amazon had a surprise for me today, the reward for belonging to their associates program and linking mentions of books, mostly, in my blog to their products.
I have an Amazon credit for $1.63. As this is a cool $1.63 more than I had when I sat down at the computer, I really do consider myself ahead. I am not being sarcastic. My blog, or my blogging, has, against all odds, earned income.
In my world, things stand-in for other things. My vibrational frequency is metaphor, sign and symbol. A dollar sixty-three today, tomorrow...ten thousand.
Everything around me that works the way it is supposed to, or better, is a gift. Anything that one would like more of that becomes more is a gift...a new blog follower (there should be tokens of appreciation), a hidden box of erasers to carve, an Amazon greeting and gift card.
A family friend claimed there was money for her in the desert and every time we met at the edge of nowhere, shared our picnics in the sand and reconnoitered the area, damn if she didn't find at least $20 caught on the only shrub in sight.
Unless we've traded our wits for reality tv shows, we have the ability to recognize patterns. Jackie noticed the desert wind blew cash in her direction. That Amazon email with the bright subject line may be more about a perceived assurance that the good does come, in the forms and increments it chooses, than about quantity or substance.
Increase is increase. I am patient. This will do.
