Despite the fact that everyone in the blogging business starts out every single conversation with us by asking, “Why aren’t you guys doing referrals?” we’ve held off on doing so.
Why? Because we’ve always felt that we can best serve readers by remaining completely separated from their purchase process. We write what we think, not what we think’ll make you buy some tool. In fact, if you hear us actually recommend buying something, it’s because we’ve got one and we love it.
But today it struck me that it might make more sense to ask you rather than just assume that you have strong feelings about this. Does it matter to you? Do you like our Froogle links for pricing? How’d you feel about an additional direct link to the tool for sale at Amazon, assuming it didn’t change our writing at all?
I’m concerned, but I’d like to hear your thoughts. If you would, please take the time to let me know in comments. Or, if you’d like a more private line, just use the contact us form.
