In some cases I may be an affiliate for some of the products and services I recommend. In these cases, I receive a small commission when you use one of my affiliate links and purchase the associated product or service. This includes (but is not limited to) Amazon links.
I want to be very transparent about this. Websites are expensive to run and update, and using affiliate links allows me (the site owner) to recoup the costs associated, as well as earn a modest living doing what I love: writing and helping people.
I will never endorse a product or service that I wouldn’t use myself. Furthermore, if I hear enough negative reports about a product or service, I will promptly stop endorsing it (at my disclosure).
You will never be charged more as a result of these commissions. The price is the same whether you use my link or go straight to the source.
If the concept of affiliate commissions makes you queasy, I’d encourage you to either 1) turn off cookies for this site, or 2) don’t use my link and go directly to the product site on your own.
Ultimately my goal is to be helpful, and that’s why all information here is free regardless of whether you use affiliate links or not. For those who opt to do so, thank you!
