Amazon + blogger...What do you think?

Have you seen any info on this new partnership? If you don't want to click on the link, here's a brief summary: By adding a monetize feature to my blog, I could make linking to books and other items in the Amazon catalog oh so easy.

Here's the thing.

I've never tried making money off my blog. Mainly because, well, hello, not that many readers! Not that I don't love and appreciate every single one of you, because I do. But it seems to me the only time it might make sense to partake of such a venture would be when it might be fiscally beneficial.

Yet, I'm tempted. Not because of the money. Nope. Because I am lazy and anything to make my life a little easier seems like a good idea. I link to Amazon a lot. Not because I'm expecting any of my readers to buy from them, but because that's where I do a lot of my buying.

Don't hate me.

I'm lazy. I thought we had established this...

Anyhow, I'm tempted. But I'm also wary of the "make your life easier" gimmick to be just that: a gimmick. Any thoughts?
