Good morning! How was everyone’s weekend? We’re all rested up, and back to normal this week so be prepared for lots of great content from all our writers in the upcoming days. We’re down to less than one week left in the banner contest, so get those art neurons firing and make us something pretty.
Some technical notes, we’ve gotten approval to be an Amazon affiliate, so any links we make to Amazon products that you click will be a part of that affiliation. What does that mean for you? Clicking an Amazon link will put a cookie on your machine, which most websites do regardless of if they’re selling something or not. This cookie will identify you to Amazon as a customer who came to their site by way of Persephone. Any purchase you make through this system will earn us up to 10% of the total sale. We’ll tell you in the body of the post if a link is part of one of our affiliate marketing plans, and our privacy/disclosure policy will be updated later on today to reflect this new dealio and offer links to more information and details about how it all works. That being said, we’re still only going to link to products we’ve actually test driven and given an honest review. We’re not a store, we’re a ladyblog. We do want to pay the bills, and we want to eventually pay the present and future people who put a lot of time and love into bringing you the anthology of delightful weirdos that is Persephone Magazine. We’re not going to do banner ads or otherwise clutter up the place, but we will look into affiliate marketing with additional companies who sell cool stuff we might end up talking about. We’re playing with a few ideas, but we promise not to insult your intelligence with any of them.
But enough of that! We’ve got a Monday ahead of us! I’ll put on the coffee and there are bagels in the virtual break room. We’ll keep your web breaks interesting as you go about turning the world on with your smile.
