    Could I add HTML provided by Amazon as an affiliate store using the Text Widget? Or I should use other widget to do it?
    Please advice.

    The blog I need help with is abundantlifetogether.wordpress.com.

    No, you cannot ad Amazon affiliate widgets. It’s against the terms of service. Affiliate marketing here is essentially limited to things like book review blogs, and even there, to a maximum of one link per post and none in the sidebar.

    So how do we go about setting up a blog for business? Most of the affiliate or associate programs would become “illegal” in wordpress.
    I am new to Blog and hope to get some advice on this. Any related books or articles recommended for reading?

    I would recommend starting a self hosted WordPress site. Get your own url and hosting and you can install WordPress and have full control over the site.

    Here is the official description from WordPress http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/.

    That’s correct.

    WordPress.com is designed as a secure, turnkey blogging system. It is not set up to facilitate affiliate sales.
