I just added a new blog entry on one of my sites. I worked in Amazon Affiliate ads in what I hope is a natural way, but I'd love some feedback. I don't want to drive off readers who think my blog is just one big product plug, but I want to balance that with taking opportunities to add products that fit naturally into the flow. Here's the page in question: http://fitby50blog.com/its-a-major-award-a-christmas-story-house-5k-run-kicks-off-on-december-7

I'm also adding the Wealthy Affiliate link to the bottom of all my pages, but I'm hoping that's an unobtrusive way. Feedback very much appreciated!

Thanks, all! I upped the photo size a little.

You kept it personal - not over advertised. Does not give the feel of a page built for pushing product! I think you did well.

I don't see anything salesy about this page :) It's very well done. It is what, I think, people are looking for - your experience. You've not pointed to your audience with you, you, you.

Very good! I agree that your images should be a little (not much) bigger.

In my opinion your photos could be a bit larger. Can't really see them unless you click on them.

Hey Barb,

On a quick scan I didn't get a hint of over advertising. Nor, on a little closer inspection. I wish I was more qualified to share an opinion, though I am very easily spooked by hard sell, over linking etc, & my radar was not signalling on this one at all.

Nice pg by the way - Regards, Damien.

Thanks! That's very valuable to me because I think most people have that "over advertised" sense and I don't want to trip it off. I actually own a lot of A Christmas Story stuff myself so I'm not plugging anything I would personally buy.
