I know quite a few of my visitors have websites of their own. I get a lot of link trade requests, so I've made it pretty easy to create your own link for my links page
Just go to http://www.troutnut.com/add-web-link
and fill out the form. You'll need to add a link to Troutnut.com for your request to be approved. This is really easy and I've included sample code you can cut and paste onto your page if you want. As long as your website is appropriately related, I'll approve you request quickly.
The Troutnut.com Gift Shop is a partnership with CafePress
, a terrific company which allows creative people to set up a store selling all kinds of products without being involved in the printing, billing, or shipping process. It's a great way for small-time website owners with any sort of artistic streak to pay their hosting bills.
One of the neat thing it allows is an affiliate program: You can make money just by including a special link to my store! Whenever somebody follows your link and buys a product, you get a cut of the profit. So everybody wins, and it's really easy
to set up--just follow these instructions
All of this should all be pretty automated and straightforward. Feel free to post here if you have any questions!
