Well, my income for November is in. A grand total of £44.40. It’s up a little on the previous month’s £39 and September’s £16, and is about 2.5% of what I need to pay my bills.
However, much of this month’s commission was down to one person who went on something of a demented spending spree on Amazon!
I had another little frustration this morning. I set up an account at my.telegraph.co.uk yesterday and made the mistake of spending about 15 minutes setting up my little blog there and completing my profile.
I must have broken the terms and conditions, because this morning the account is suspended. I had a link back to my website, and this must have been deemed too commercial. It was in context, and the blog post with the link was alerting readers to a series of safety articles – something that added value in its own right and was not selling anything although it is on one of my commercial sites.
Who moderates these things? My contribution was in no way spammy – any fool could see that. Why delete the whole account? Why not just remove the link or delete the post and send me an email? Sometimes, it’s hard this business. No harder than cold-calling in the offline world, though. And I should know, because I spent a year doing that when I was in my 20s.
Right, thanks for lending me your ear while I had a moan.
Back to work..
