Information to add widgets or links to sidebar

    I have read & researched so much my head is spinning. Can someone just email me an answer to my specific question. I just started a wordpress blog, I have my own domain name from a registar but I don’t believe I have a type account, whatever that means. Anyway I was trying to place a widget on my sidebar and after searching & reading thousands of questions & answers I still don’t know if it is allowed. I did a review on my cousins book on marriage, & being as though I plan to base my blogs on parenting, marriage advice AS WELL AS the fact she is my cousin, I wanted to place an amazon widget of her book on my page. And possibly one other book I’m reading that I absolutely love & want to share with my bloggers. I don’t plan to get rich off of amazon…does anyone really? Anyway, a guy who liked my 1st or 2nd post…I went to his page to see what he was about and noticed he had a Virgin air blinky at the top and a progressive add on his sidebar. When I clicked them they were through clickbank. Now I don’t want this poor stay at home dad to have his page shut down so please dont, I just said that to say, from what I read these are not allowed. Yet some how these forums in some respect do allow some that aren’t suppose to be allowed? I’m confused. I hate blinky & spamm junkky sites just as much as the next guy. All I want to do is put a an Amazon widget for my cousins book & may one or two others. Or even if I tried a product that I just love & want to share with others! If I CAN have your permission to do this, can you please tell me how to “legally” as this is only my second day of blogging & I’d hate to get suspended. Took me way to long to get a website up and running! I am far removed from being computer techy or savvy. lol
