Although a certain amount of disclosure is required by the FTC and some of the third-party affiliates I may link to, I wanted to be completely transparent and provide a more in-depth explanation of my Affiliate Policy on this page.
First, note that any of the opinions and/or reviews that I share and post are completely my own. My number one priority is that I am providing value to you by sharing these links – at no additional cost to you.
Any of the products that I link to with Affiliate links are ones that I personally use and believe in.
We are a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites.
This means that – at no additional cost to you – when I link to Amazon products and books that I recommend from this site, I may receive a small commission for any purchases that you make using that link.
I will also note when a blog post or page includes such affiliate links, but want to be as clear as possible.
If you have any questions at all, please contact us by email.
