Here's my Full Disclosure Policy (as per FTC regulations):
Here are the three ways that I make money from this blog:
- Sometimes I get paid to write a post reviewing a certain product. These posts are always clearly labeled as sponsored posts and I share my 100% honest opinion. I NEVER endorse a product that I do not like.
- As a side note- Sometimes organizations send me free stuff and ask me to share their product with my readers. They do NOT pay me but if I like the product, I gladly share about it on my blog or one of my social media outlets. These blog posts are also clearly labeled!
- I put up ads on my blog. I know they can be a bit annoying, and I apologize.... especially for the loud movie ones... or the one that keeps floating around. But, I keep them up because they do generate a bit of income.
- I put Amazon affiliate links in my posts. They usually link to products or books that I think might be helpful to my readers. Every time you click on the link and purchase a product through Amazon, I make a bit of money (at no additional cost to you.)
