I tried this once before, several years back, when monetizing first became a thing. I set up my links and excitedly went back to my home page to view the new look. But the ads that had been posted were of products I don't support or use, and would never endorse. It was the shortest lived ad campaign ever. I deleted the ad widget immediately.
Things have changed. I can now choose the exact products that I myself use and totally trust. You will see our family's favorite herbs, children's products and other items I have ordered and loved. Many will be from Amazon because since moving to the boondocks, Amazon has become a lifeline... our very own supply-plane-on-the-Alaskan-fronteer ("De plen! De plen!"), our personal Wells Fargo Wagon ("Yesth it could be...sthomthin' sthpecial, justh for me!!!"). Also, chocolate by mail, am I right?
I hope those few dear readers that I have (you know who you are; the ones who click on my new post within minutes of my having posted it) will not feel betrayed or disappointed. It's a brave new world, and I need to find a way to work from home. I'll tell you briefly what I like about some of the products now and then. So, tune out here, if you like!
****So I often share my love of honey bee propolis with my friends. I use YS Organics Bee Propolis. Bees create and coat the inside of their hive with this "bee glue" to combat viral, fungal and bacterial growth. I know bee products like pollen, propolis and honey are being used in other countries to prevent diabetic amputations, and to fight anti-biotic resistant bacteria. A good start already.
I was born with Gilbert's Syndrome, which makes my bilirubin count high and my immunity low. I get sick a lot, or used to. One day when we were all dying of the black plague, I called my midwife to warn her. "No biggie, I'll just load up on my propolis." She said. She taught me about it, and I tried it. I counted each time I began to feel yucky and then subsequently did not have to take to my sickbed for a week. After 17 illnesses were skipped, I quit counting, convinced that - for me, at least - this stuff worked.
*SCARY DON'T-SUE-ME DISCLAIMER* I am no doctor, so IF you decide to try it, use with caution, follow directions and don't use if you allergic to bees.
I like to take mine with some zinc and vitamin C. I call it my Magic Elixir.
That wasn't so bad, was it? This ad thing will be an experiment. If I don't like it, I will stop again. Also, if I become ridiculously wealthy and loose my earthy connection to my poor Irish roots, then of course, full stop. We can't let that happen.
