Shopping With Mrs. Baja

Let's go shopping!  All of Mrs. BG's gals love to shop but had no plans to promote products on this blog. The idea blossomed spontaneously during a weekend chat. Spontaneity might as well be Mrs. BG's middle name-- so far it has resulted in an impromtu readalong, a fifth co-blogger, a facebook group and now Amazon Affiliation.  No ruts for Mrs. BG!

Ads on this blog will only promote types of products that we either actually use and have blogged about or that we hope to receive as gifts. (hint hint dear hubbies)   For instance, DeLynne has blogged about the joy of gift cards,  the delights of tea and the beauty of  bookmarks. Tracy loves her kindle as she mentioned here and here.  And cookbooks-- Oh, we are obsessed with cookbooks. (click the cookbook label)

We are so excited to offer this service. Hopefully, browsing our favorite things will provide inspiration for the perfect gift for your next occasion-- or just enjoy a bit of window shopping.

Despite the term 'monetizing', this is about providing a service; a convenient resource for our readers to obtain more information about books and products--  whether they purchase or not.  If we earn enough for a little lagniappe every now and again-- a bookmark maybe-- that would be lovely too but we are not deluded-- none of us are quitting our dayjobs. ;o) 

Happy Shopping!

Just out of curiousity, since my opinion of ads has evolved over the last year: What is your opinion of ads on blogs? Do you ever click on them?  I did not click on many and never on Google ads but will now since Helen Smith explained here about cyber pennies -- such a cute funny post, check it out. 


  1. Thanks for the link!

    Hope you get to enjoy a little lagniappe every now and again.


  2. Your're welcome! And I hope Jessie gets to enjoy a tin of canine cuisine-- just sent a couple of cyber pennies whizzing your way!


  3. Well, if the item is directly related to the article, as in, placed there BY the writer, I will likely click on it.

    If, however, it is an ad on a BOOK blog and it is about losing weight or some other generic ad...nope.

    But, now, after reading Helen's explanation, I will click on the ads and NOT feel least not for clicking the ads...
