Being able to link directly to the Amazon database is one of the exciting new features of the MWSA website. However, there seems to be some confusion about the ASIN fields in our content forms and how those fields can be used. Also, there is a nice feature from Amazon that some people haven't discovered: inline Amazon links.
As 2011 comes to a close, I am adding the final few features to the MWSA website before our "official" launch. Today, I added a link to the MWSA Photo Galleries from the Navigation menu. The gallery is where photos from many MWSA events will be posted. This feature will make it easier for people to locate photos: the albums will be organized by event name and date.
I'd like to encourage everyone to put some part of themselves into the new site for our launch on January 1. Welcome to visitors and something to show off your talent. I look forward to seeing what you can produce in such a short timeframe.
Also, try to make it a habit to put the ASIN of one of your books on all of your postings so that visitors who read your blog posts and like what you have to say can easily click on the link that leads them to the Amazon store where they can buy.
