Sometimes we use affiliate links. What does that mean? It means that if we’ve used a product or service personally and liked it, and that product or service has an affiliate program, we sign up for it. Then, when we mention that product or service in one of our blog posts, we link to it using our affiliate link.
Should you end up buying something as a result of one of those links, we might get a little jingle for our pocketbook.
If you’ve hung around our sites long or know us well, you know that we would just as soon eat barbed wire or chew broken glass than sell our souls to make money off of you on a product that we don’t even like. That would be disingenuous. You know this, we know this. But, alas, the FTC isn’t sure you really know this.
And that is why we wrote this disclosure – to empower everyone to fearlessly make an informed decision before clicking on an affiliate link. There should be no question that if we feel comfortable with a product or service and refer it to you, we don’t mind making a little money for that referral. We hope you would do the same.
