“Share on Twitter” Rocks! #AMZNSOT

Awesome news for Amazon.com Associates (aka “Affiliates”) – the cool Site Strip just got even cooler! Amazon now provides a super easy way to share your finds (and affiliate links) on Twitter with “Share on Twitter.” You can access Share on Twitter from the Site Stripe and post to your Twitter account from Amazon detail pages in just two clicks.

The Share on Twitter feature is easy to use. Simply log in to your Amazon Associates account and then visit any detail page on Amazon.com. By clicking on the Share on Twitter button in the Site Stripe, a new window will open and an Amazon-generated message is pre populated in the ‘What are you doing?’ text area of your Twitter account (you may be asked to log in to your Twitter account). That message will include a shortened URL that already includes your Associates ID. You’ll have the option to edit this message or simply hit the ‘Update’ button to post to your Twitter account. When Twitter users click on the link in your post and make a qualifying sale, you’ll earn referral fees. That’s it!

I’ve personally been waiting for this to happen – I love posting reviews on products and linking to Amazon. It’s a great way to earn a little extra money while doing something I do anyway (which is share my opinion of course!) I’m SO glad Amazon’s made it that much easier!

Another Day, Another List

I need to get moving because I have a ton to do today! Dropped my Xander off at Angie’s as usual (she watches him in the morning before his Pre-K begins and afterward until I get him after I get out of school ~ for this I adore her BTW) … Got some more Physics work done (I have an 84% which AMAZES ME since I keep bombing tests but acing the actual work). Tomorrow is the Physics FINAL so I have to study tonight. I have a ton of errands and chores and work to do today though. Here’s the list:

  1. Immunization Record for Xander
  2. Get Xander from Pre-K
  3. Grocery Shopping
  4. Thrift store / Dollar Store
  5. Finish up and launch Lisa’s blog template.
  6. Fix alignment on Lisa’s twitter background.
  7. Finish coding and update client on website.
  8. Branded twitter page for Heather.
  9. Finish layout for new portfolio.
  10. Layout for Tammy’s website.
  11. Contact Noel about kitchen blog redesigns. (hmm .. maybe Thursday)
  12. Plan tomorrow. Plan Thursday.
