I am mentioning this here because I sometimes post links to my various Associated Content articles on Facebook and Twitter and recently I posted a link to a poetry book review I wrote a while back whereupon a woman mentioned to me that she really liked reading my book reviews, but was not crazy about reading them on Associated Content because of all the ads appearing on that site. I understood where she was coming from and did not disagree, but the main reason that I post them on Associated Content (even if they were published elsewhere first) and then link to that site is because the more page views I receive on that site, the more teeny tiny tidbits of money I will make. That said, though, I am also very pleased that some of my poetry book reviews in particular were first published within a variety of unique literary oriented sources, so for interested parties, here are a few links to those original creative sources:
