by this time last year, we were planning our three week trip to new york! we may have bought the tickets by this time as well and the excitement started! the only thing bad that would happen on our return was me having a fatal problem with my external hard drive and lose all the new york photos. the positive thing is that there was a solution, a 1500€ solution by a company that claimed they could most likely fix my external hard drive and save all my work. but the negative part was that i didn’t have 1500€ for that and even if i had that money, i don’t think i would have spent it that way! i figured out that for 1500€ we could both fly again to new york and i could take all the pictures i wanted again, and the rest of the work… well, i had to do it all over again! it was a lesson learned for sure!
thanks to lightroom i could save half the files though in a much lower resolution, most edited files were completely ruined. but here’s the idea – i’ll make an album with the photos i could save and this way, new york will be with us forever and close to us (unless there’s a fire or something, but hey, let’s not get into those kind of problems, right?).
i’ll be ordering an album from blurb, with whom i’ve been working on photo albums and i’m so pleased with their quality! i also work with them here on the blog as an affiliated sponsor, which you might have already noticed. and if you are asking yourself what is an affiliated sponsor, let me share this with you!
think about all your favourite brands! those that make you excited to buy from, those that make you thrilled to receive a discount from… write their names on a piece of paper and google them with the following words “affiliate program”. you will probably find that those brands have affiliated programs which means you can join those programs, get a few fancy badges and links, place them on your blog and simply talk about those brands with your readers. if your readers click on those links/badges and buy something, you get a percentage, because you were the one that made the connection between your reader and that brand. and that is how i work with blurb, the book depository and moo!
some say that this is not a good advertising for bloggers to make, but i truly believe it is! why shouldn’t i take advantage of suggesting something to you that i particularly love? you don’t pay anything extra + you read my personal opinion on such brand and/or product + you get happy + you shop + brands get happy + i get a small incentive! it’s a win-win situation!
so for those of you who are thinking about making some photo album as a christmas gift or just for yourself, here’s the great deal!
as soon as my album with these pictures arrives i’ll share it with you! can’t wait to hold it on my hands! if you are a blogger, and you happen to love blurb as well, you can also get on their affiliate program, just email me so that i can refer your name/blog to them! have a great saturday my friends!
