Amazon has announced that it is cutting commissions/referral payments by about half. This will probably cause a lot of book bloggers to close shop. Some bloggers lost the ability to earn commissions entirely over the last few months.
I don’t earn a huge amount from referrals, but it’s been enough to keep the blog going. I haven’t decided what to do about posting book links. While I do referrals to other sites and I also take book ads, the bulk of my commissions has come from Amazon in the past. I’ve seen a few book bloggers take donations or do subscriptions, but I just don’t feel that is a viable model for surviving.
If you like to see the book bargains I’ve been posting, let me know. If there are other topics you’d rather see, let me know that too.
