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 site are what are referred to as “affiliates”.
An affiliate is simply a product someone (like me) recommends. If the reader buys that product through my website, the someone in question (again, me) gets a small commission payment in exchange for sending their customer to that product.
The commission comes from the product seller and does not increase the price you pay. Thus it’s a win-win for you, me and the company selling the item. After all, if I hadn’t mentioned it to you, you might not have bought it
Also to be clear though, not everything I recommend is an affiliate product as I want to only recommend things I believe in and some of those things don’t offer an affiliate program.
My goal with this site is to help educate you about the subjects we talk about and help you. Thus I promise the following:
- I only recommend products that I use myself or that are products I have thoroughly checked out and would use if I needed a product like that
- 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 a few years ago may not be relevant for you now. I guarantee I’ll investigate anytime an item doesn’t work as expected for you so I can reconsider recommending it.
Please note that, unless noted, I have not been given any free products, services or anything else by these companies in exchange for mentioning them on the sites. If I were to get offered that, I would try the product and if I genuinely liked it, then I would consider recommending it.
The only consideration I currently receive is in the form of affiliate commissions.
Occasionally I do recommend things I haven’t personally used IF someone I know and trust has endorsed it.
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.
