Sometimes I use affiliate links. What does that mean? It means that if I have used or have in depth knowledge of a product or service and liked it, and that product or service has an affiliate program, I sign up for it. Then, when I mention that product or service in one of my blog posts, I link to it using my affiliate link.
Should you end up buying something using one of those links, I might get a small commission.
If you’ve hung around my site long or know me well, you know that I would just as soon eat trail dust or freeze dried meals than sell my soul to make money off of you on a product I don’t even like. You know this, I know this. But, alas, the FTC is not sure you really know this.
The FTC requires bloggers to disclose whenever there is a financial interest or bias related to a recommendation or whenever a blogger’s opinion may be financially motivated in any way. More importantly, I have a desire to always be transparent and honest with readers and to disclose how I make money from this website.
The FTC requires disclosure about any affiliate links. I specifically note at the top of a post when affiliate links are present, but for disclosure purposes, assume that any link you click on is an affiliate link. This means that I will earn a small commission if you decide to purchase the product linked to it. There is no additional cost to you the buyer.
As an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases at no cost to you the buyer.
