Use the Amazon Widget for Your Holiday Shopping

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 9:31 am

The holidays are coming up. If you order anything through Amazon, please consider using the widget on the sidebar to access Amazon. Just type what you’re looking for into the search box in the right margin. It will take you to Amazon, and any items you order after reaching Amazon will result in this site earning a percentage.

This simple act costs you nothing but helps fund the hosting costs here, as well as any costs resulting from the frivolous lawsuit my wife and I are facing. You can stand up for free speech just by making sure your holiday shopping starts with that widget.

By the way: Amazon sells cameras. The best commissions we have gotten here are from camera sales. So if you’re looking for a camera, consider Amazon and using that widget!

Thanks for your support and readership.

  2. And thanks to those who have remembered to use the widget. It truly does help a lot, and I notice. And it means I very rarely have to run annoying fundraisers asking people for money.

  3. I wonder what Amazon, who had no presence in CA until they negotiated a sales-tax deal with Moonbeam, think of Prop-39, which will require them to pay lots of taxes to CA due to that presence.

    BTW, this reader does not now do Amazon.

  4. just used this to order “The Joy of Hate” by Greg Gutfeld. Heh. Looks like an entertaining read.

    Thx for the reminder re: holiday shopping —

    and a permanent change in nick, in honor of the President’s re-election, from The Princess Bride… :)

  5. who can afford to do holiday shopping?

    besides, the only thing we’re buying besides food and such these days is ammo & spare parts for the bang sticks.

    and Amazon doesn’t carry those sorts of things.

  8. The latest camera was me. I intentionally used the widget. You’re welcome.
    Not sure I’ll be doing any significant x-mas shopping on Amazon, but will be sure to use the widget if I do.

  9. Wow! It seems like EVERY conservative blogger is facing a frivolous lawsuit these days.

    If you’re taking flak you must be over the target…

  10. @ redc1c4 (#5): Patterico can indirectly cross-confirm, by checking his Amazon Associate records, that at least one regular reader of this website (moi) made an Amazon purchase immediately after the networks all called Ohio for Barry:

    Another case of MREs.

    There’s more to survival than things that go bang; and even for things that go bang, Amazon has lots of accessories.

  11. (Not to understate the importance of things that go bang! Too bad doesn’t have a blogger participation program.)

  12. Bad times are ahead. Sorry not in the mood to buy.

    Dittoes. Sometimes I’m even looking for it and scroll past too fast.

    Plus higher it would remind people. Like Iowahawk’s “Pay up, sucka” button. Heh.

  15. It’s moved up.

    The truly radical move would (will?) be to move it above Recent Comments.

  16. Whoops. Looks like doing that messed stuff up.

    Um, may change it back.

  17. I used the widget today, kept scrolling right past it. Needs to stick out like a sore thumb.

  18. OK, moved it under Recent Comments and I think the problems with the sidebar are fixed.

  19. Or, not.
