Here is a new twist on an old story and a real bug bear of mine. As bloggers, many of us run income producing streams of one sort or another.
For many of us, it is ads; for others it may be affiliates; it may just be a Google Adsense banner. The point here is that we often run ads to generate income. Most of us make very little.
I came across this site;Buy From Bloggerswho are running a campaign to encourage bloggers to buy from each other.
The concept makes sense. If you are going to buy something, it would make sense to check out some of your favorite blogs to see if you cannot buy the item through their links. The cost to you is the same, the blogger gets some income and not one of the rich sites.
