So I took the plunge and am now an Amazon Associate. In the interest of full disclosure, when I post a link to Amazon it will be with an affiliate link embedded. This is advertising, plain and simple and I should you follow that link and make a purchase I receive compensation for those purchases.
Why am I disclosing this? Well the answer is really kind of clear, the FTC decided that failure to disclose the incentives you receive for "word of mouth" marketing is an actionable offense. My traffic is really low, but I don't want to find out how actionable it is.
