To My Readers
After much thought, I've decided to try and monetize my blog. The reason for this is pretty simple - I'd like money to go on more trips, maybe pay for a professional template designer and maybe even buy a website domain so that I can create a personal website where all the stuff I do (my blogs, the sites I blog for, the random things I do) can come together.
But because I really don't like advertisements, I'll basically be using Affiliate links. For now, this is limited to books (and I don't do that many book reviews, so if you really hate stuff like that, you shouldn't be affected too much). I'll be posting Affiliate links in the "Resources" and at the end of each book review. For now, I only have Amazon.com links, but as I sort out my Paypal account, I might be adding more.
To Potential Sponsors/Advertisers
If you're reading this blog and you think you have a product that my readers and I will love, feel free to contact me! I am willing to accept products (like books [e.g. language books, books on living abroad, etc] or whatever you think a student in Japan needs to enjoy her time here) in exchange for an honest review.
Of course, I will be stating many times throughout my review that I'm getting this product for free. If it turns out that I don't like the product, I will contact you to see if you still want the review up (I'm sorry, but I won't be able to pay for shipping back, so that's a risk for you).
If you enjoy looking at my photos and wish to buy a print, please take a look at my Zazzle store! I'll be adding more photos, and if you want me to sell a print of a particular photo, please let me know!
See other products available on Zazzle.
I have a 500px account, and it automatically created a store for me. It's on the pricey side, but even if you just visit to take a look at the photos, I'd be really happy.
