I'm in need of a little rant. There are very few things that I don't like/love about our book blogging community....but there is one thing that is starting to annoy me greatly. Unfortunately, that thing is a "great" thing called Affiliates. Now those of you who may be reading this who have or are affiliates I am not trying to bad mouth you or say that the idea is a bad one, it's so very NOT a bad idea. I've just got to get my frustrations off of my chest ASAP! I guess I just don't understand the process....If someone could please explain it to me I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be near as annoyed and frustrated when I see a post pertaining to "affiliates." Also, what is the "official" definition of affiliate in the book blogging community? What exactly does an affiliate do? What does it mean to be an affiliate?
