If you are here reading my blog, you should know that I occasionally make money blogging here.
Before you get too crazy though thinking I’m making millions at your expense, let me explain a couple of things. The best part about blogging, is that the reader can continue on with his or her normal life, and you are unaffected by whatever small compensation I might receive. (seriously. It’s small.)
There are FTC guidelines though that require that I let you know that I do make money blogging, and how I do it. Feel free to check those out if you like reading boring legal stuff.
But, the best part of this deal is that I work for you in a way. When I do, on occasion, write a sponsored post, it’s because it’s a product that I actually did love, or thought I would love when I agreed to do it. And, I thought you might love it too. The third party supplying compensation to me is fitting the bill and it doesn’t cost you anything! Pretty cool isn’t it? Plus, you get to hear about new products that maybe you’ve never heard of before (and sometimes win stuff too!)
I will always be 100% honest with you. That’s important to me. So here are some things you should know about my blog and my work with affiliates and sponsors:
- I am an amazon affiliate. Perfectionpending.net (me) is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.com. Occasionally, I might use affiliate links (like for Amazon) that will give me a super duper small percentage of what you buy. But, it doesn’t affect your bottom line price either. If you love my blog, then think of it as supporting me, and my family, and maybe my love of diet cokes to click on those links so that I can earn a tiny bit of income from this hobby of mine that I LOVE. Writing for you!
- I occasionally do product reviews. When it comes to product reviews, I try really hard to be choosy. For one, I don’t do a review just to get free stuff. I want my reviews to be things that I’m excited about, and more importantly, things I think my readers will be excited about. I will pick and choose product reviews sparingly, but just know, I’m reviewing something in the hopes that you’ll love it as much as I do. Sometimes I am compensated for these reviews and sometimes I receive free product as compensation.
- I have ads on my blog. I personally am not too bothered by ads on blogs I read, because I know that blogging takes a lot of time. I will try hard not to get too spammy with my ads or have too many pop ups. THAT is annoying. I try to keep my ads simple, out of the way, and not too annoying. It’s just another way I can make money and justify to my husband why I spend so much time on the computer writing. Here’s some more boring stuff Google wants me to tell you:
- Google’s use of the DART cookie enables it and its partners to serve ads to my users based on their visit to my site and/or other sites on the Internet.
Bloggers provide a lot of things for free to the readers. Advice, inspiration, laughs, recipes, free printables, etc. Most bloggers will tell you that they LOVE what they do (I know I do) but it’s a time consuming and sometimes expensive thing to run a blog. That’s why it helps us a lot when we are supported financially on occasion.
