Affiliate Link Policy
Bloggers today, are becoming more aware of our legal responsibilities to you, the reader. As a result we are getting better at disclosing aspects about our blogging and business practices. This is why this Affiliate Link Policy is here.
As this blog is also a source of income, one of the avenues for raising that income is through something referred to as Affiliate Links. So we are declaring that the money we earn per month through affiliate links helps pay the operating costs for keeping this site up and running. Thank you for your support.
What is an Affiliate Link?
These are simply a link, that when you click on an underlined, or different colored text section (such as this) where you, the reader are taken to a different website displaying one or more products for sale. You can choose to make a purchase or not with no pressure. As well, you do NOT pay any more for that item(s) if you do choose to make a purchase. You pay what I pay for the same thing.
We are paid a small commission directly from that company involved without any additional cost to you. But that is not why we referred you to that product or company. The reason we referred them is because we personally use them and find their products to be of value. We thought that you, the reader, might also find them beneficial.
Identifying Affiliate Links in Our Posts
Although not every link we show is an affiliate link, when it is–we will do our best to clearly identify those links to you. By putting a brief Affiliate Link disclosure sentence before the Affiliate Link items, offer a link back to this policy, and also by using terms such as (affiliate) by the particular link.
We hope that this has been helpful to you in understanding more about Affiliate Links and how it affects both you and us.
We desire to be upfront with you, our reader, to know this and to further disclose that:
- The content of this blog is a source of income for us. Therefore it may be used to promote products, services, or other businesses that may be of interest and beneficial to you.
- We choose to only promote products, services, or businesses that we have actually used. Items that we sincerely recommend. We believe these would be as much a benefit to you as these same products, services or businesses have proven to be to us personally as well.
