After updating the books database in my site Marginal Revolution Books yesterday, today I added a /blog (and high-quality
#content), in the hopes of getting approved for the Amazon Affiliates program this time. Make fun of it if you want, I made it from scratch in <2 hours, it even supports html markup but I didn’t bother on most of the posts. It also has slug urls instead of numerical ids.
If I get approved by the Amazon Affiliates program, then my Amazon API access token won’t get revoked, and I can set up automatic updates. Otherwise I have to keep reapplying and rotating the token.
I got the idea from this comment on Indie Hackers. Wish me luck!
