Some of the links on this site are affiliate links. That means that if you buy a product I mention, then I get a small commission. It helps out the site and doesn’t cost you anything.
I choose to use affiliate links to support the site instead of ads or sponsored posts because, at its core, this site is a personal blog where I share my personal opinions, thoughts, and advice. Any posts that feature products or services do so because it contributes to the larger theme of a post. I do not write posts to advertise a specific product or service.
I am part of the following Affiliate Programs and I have included details my relationship below:
- Amazon Associates (as of February 2018): Many of us use Amazon to buy a variety of products. It made sense to have affiliate links for books and some other products through them. I applied for the Associates Program and now all my Amazon links are affiliated.
- Grammarly (as of March 2018): I have been using Grammarly for years and after writing a post (not sponsored) that included the service, I checked to see if they had an Affiliate Program. They did. I applied and got in. That means if you click on my Grammarly links and download either the free or premium service, I get a commission.
- Booking.com (as of May 2019: Sometimes I mention the hotels and types of lodging we might have stayed in during a trip, especially for my Travel Itineraries. It made sense to link to become part of the affiliate program for booking.com because that’s the site that we use to make many of our bookings.
I really appreciate your support. As you know, blogging is not my full-time job and affiliate links help with monetary costs associated with the site. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me!
