Hello, I managed to send a message to WordPress support about a week ago, but I don't seem to be able to find the link any more.
My blog is https://patmills.wordpress.com/ and I am a writer. I have a new book (Marshal Law, by Pat Mills and Kevin O'Neill) from DC Comics, and I would like to put an Amazon widget on my sidebar, to promote my book, so that readers can click through and buy my book if they want. I didn't realise at the time that it wasn't allowed, so I tried several times to paste the text into the text widget, and I couldn't understand why it kept disappearing!
So I did some searching and found the reason on the forums.
But I gather that the restriction is to stop people abusing the system. I *think* I would be allowed to add the Amazon widget, as I am the author, and it will be the only thing I am promoting.
How do I ask WordPress to consider my case and allow me to add the widget?
The blog I need help with is patmills.wordpress.com.
