I've been using Google ads for years now, and am nearly at the $100.00 mark to be paid for painless advertising. I just discovered the Amazon Associates. I hope it isn't too cumbersome, but I added it to see how it goes. There is also a YouTube monetizing app, but I'm trying not to overdo it.
It may be worth your time as a blogger to add some of these apps. Check it out in the dashboard section of blogger.
