I know – but the boring stuff has to go somewhere.
My goal is to make this blog a fun, safe place. Even so, bills and legal stuff.
The great thing about all of this blogging, though, is that it doesn’t cost you anything – and it actually helps you. Affiliate links do NOT cost you anything; if you buy something through them, then I do receive a commission, but it does NOT cost you anything. Product reviews – again, cost you zilch. But you get access to honest reviews on something you may have had your eye on anyway. Combine those with ads, and I’ve got a way to justify writing cool stuff to make your day a little bit better – and you didn’t have to pay me anything. That’s a win-win right there!
- I am an Amazon affiliate, because Prime is a lifesaver. Amazon requires me to say this: “ProteanMom.com 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.” Remember – it doesn’t cost you anything, and I get a commission towards next year’s zoo membership. Pretty sweet, huh? Yes, that’s an affiliate link.
- I sometimes do product reviews. Don’t worry – my integrity isn’t for sale. While I review items or post affiliate links, I will only endorse products and services that I wholeheartedly believe in and use myself. Please be sure to double check any product or service statistics with both a reputable sources and the manufacturer. I try not to make up statistics, but 38% of the time I just can’t help myself. 😉
- I do have ads on this blog. Blogging takes a lot of time, so I know that ads are a necessary evil (bills, remember?) Even so, I try to keep ads on this page simple, not annoying, and out of the way.
I’ll always disclose when I get something in exchange for a review, an endorsement, or a referral link. I’ll also include a link back here to my disclosure policy, just so we’re all on the same page. If I don’t link back here, then I’m probably not getting paid (or a freebie) for whatever it is. Or I forgot to include the link. It’s elephants who never forget things, not gingers.
