Devil in the Details: Affiliate Linking and Stuff
Amazon has this requirement-thingy about using affiliate links. So I'm telling you now, if you click some/many/most? of the book links on this site, you will go straight to h@ll. Kidding. You will go to that book's page on Amazon with the added bonus of my affiliate tag. If you buy said book, I will get something like two molecules of a penny and some pocket lint.
So yeah, why do I bother? Because with Squarespace it's easier to link to a book using their handy-dandy-Amazon-built-in form than to link manually. I'm all for easy, so that's what I do. Plus, I just really love pocket lint. If you DO want to buy a book, but DON'T want me to get your pocket lint, just delete my "ref=" part from the url. I won't be offended. I won't even know! (Or will I, BWAHAHA!)

For just under an hour I sat in the Calvin College Seminary chapel, captivated by quite possibly the most interesting (and energetic) person ever to be in Calvin College’s Seminary chapel. I took more notes at that session than all the others I attended combined. Good blog headlines? Blogging and social media? Blog-killing mistakes? I scribbled it all down. Like…
