Hi everyone. I try and live my life with integrity, honesty and openness and thus want to make sure its clear that some of the things I recommend on this blog are what are referred to as “affiliates”.
An affiliate is simply a product someone (like me) recommends and if the reader buys that product through that someone’s website, the someone in question gets a small commission payment in exchange for sending their customer to that product.
Thus if you buy something having been referred to it from my website, I may get a small amount of money from that sale (so thank you in advance!). In no cases I am aware of will it ever cost you MORE to do this, so the commission is paid to me from the seller and there should be no additional cost to you.
Also to be clear though, not everything I recommend falls into that boat as I want to only recommend things I believe in and some of those things don’t offer an affiliate program.
My goal with the blog is to help educate you on the subjects we talk about and helping you will always be my top priority. Thus I promise the following:
- I only recommend products that I use myself
- I only recommend what I consider to be the best out there, whether I get an affiliate commission or not.
- If you try something I recommend and aren’t happy with it, please let me know! After all; products change, companies change and times change and what worked for me in 2012 may not be relevant for you in 2016. I guarantee I’ll investigate anytime an item doesn’t work as expected for you so I can reconsider recommending it.
Please note that I have not been given any free products, services or anything else by these companies in exchange for mentioning them on the site. The only consideration is in the form of affiliate commissions and generally speaking I have used most of these things long before I became an affiliate, so I’m not out there trying things just so I can recommend them and then get a check.
Specifically when and where I may link to products on Amazon, they require me to state the following: “I am a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites.”
If you have any questions regarding the above, please do not hesitate to contact me by using the contact page.
