2018 Annual Snapshot

2018 Annual Snapshot

I have to say, this is disappointing to do this year, since Amazon no longer gives us figures when we run searches. That means all of my traditional content searches can’t be done, as I’ve done in previous posts in

the Annual Snapshots category

However, I can still list the hardware, which I think is interesting:

* I am linking to the same thing at the regular Amazon site, and at AmazonSmile. When you shop at AmazonSmile, half a percent of your purchase price on eligible items goes to a non-profit you choose. It will feel just like shopping at Amazon: you’ll be using your same account. The one thing for you that is different is that you pick a non-profit the first time you go (which you can change whenever you want)…and the good feeling you’ll get. :) Shop ’til you help! :)
