I Received My First Check!

With everything that has been preoccupying me, it was great to receive something good - MY FIRST COMMISSION CHECK.  I know it sounds a bit old-fashioned to receive a check, but it felt GREAT!  To hold that check in my hand was priceless.

I wanted to extend my sincerest thank you to all of the big people who made it happen. (I'm not sure why the expression is little people since it's a great thing to be supported by people who contribute to your success, but I digress.)  As many of you know I have a shopping directory on this blog that is dedicated to bringing you companies that make and sell products that are made in the USA. In addition to the shopping directory, product pages have been added in the tabs at the top of the blog.  Each of the tabs contains products that are Made in the USA within that category.  One of the most exciting projects that I took on was also putting together Made in the USA products via Amazon, of which I am an affiliate.


Each time I find something that is made in the USA, I look for it on Amazon's website.  If the product is there, I add it to my Amazon store.  My hope is that this makes it easier for you to find and purchase these products.  Now with the holiday season shortly approaching, I'm sure there are many people that are looking forward to seasonal employment, if nothing else.

This check encourages me because it means that I am contributing to creating jobs locally.  It also means that I just got paid as a blogger, which helps with Baby #3 on the way.  While getting paid is obviously an added bonus, I like to see that the purchases that are being made are for products that are Made in the USA.  Thank you.  Thank you.  Thank you.

  3. Hi Heidi,
    Thank you for the awesome and cool. With statements like those you are welcome back anytime. ha, ha. You invited back anytime anyways. Made in the USA is great because the product that you purchase could be (maybe literally) made by your neighbor. How cool is that?! I look forward to having you back.

    Sincerely,
    Karina
