New Amazon.com Feature

As I have previously mentioned in other posts (see Selling Out), I got into blogging for the money.  Big money, no whammies (someone should get this reference).  I've had Amazon.com product stuff on my blog for a while but as of yet have not received enough money to comfortably retire or quit my sort-of job.  This is all your fault.  If you would all just stop being so selfish and each spend a few thousand dollars every month buying Amazon.com items through my blog I'd be able to accomplish all of my monetary goals in blogging. 

As such I've created a new widget on the lower left hand side of the blog page of Amazon.com products that I genuinely use every day and really, really like.  The widget itself is a carousel that spins around and hopefully makes you clap your hands and gleefully exclaim "Yayyy!! Make it spin again!!"  This widget is in addition to the deals widget at the top of the page, and the "Search Amazon.com" box on the left side of each blog page.

Hopefully I'll get around to writing a few testimonials for the products in this new widget since I do think they're pretty darn great.  Like the Mario Batali spatula.  It's awesome, it withstands high temps, and I really like it and use it almost every day.  In my years of cooking, canning, and kitchening, I've had some crappy spatulas that always left me yearning for more.  No longer.  This spatula kicks ass and is the first spatula EVER to be recommended by the honorable folks at Deaf Dogs and Benevolent Gnomes.  If you're currently in the market for a new spatula and don't have a Spatula City (serious mad props to anyone who gets this movie reference, you tube clip here) location near you, I would highly recommend this particular spatula. 

Remember that a portion of all Amazon.com products you purchase through the Deaf Dogs and Benevolent Gnomes blog goes to help deaf dogs in North Dakota, a very worthy cause.
