Plunging into the Amazon Associates Earnings Report today, category "Health & Personal Care, I see someone — anonymous, of course — purchased THIS. Hey, what a great idea! A commonly used everyday item. And at no additional cost to the buyer, this blog receives $1.80 from Amazon.
So it got me thinking and I went over to the SiteMeter to see that the blog had approximately 25,000 visitors today. And I thought — what if just 10% of those 25,000 visitors were to regularly, so to speak, in the privacy of their own homes, meet their Quilted Northern needs via the Althouse Amazon portal? I'll let you do the math. But let's just say it would leave the Meadhouse, well, flush. And of course a flush blogger… is a blogger who feels well-appreciated. So thanks, anonymous and everyone else who used the Althouse Amazon portal! May you ever experience great softness, comfort and convenience.

Well done! Let's see... can Charmin be purchased on Amazon? Why yes, yes it can! Ultra Soft... Ultra Suave... MEGA!
