One way I support my blogging is through sharing affiliate links or promotions. That means I will promote certain products on my blog. However, I choose products I have experience with and know to be of value for my readers (i.e.-Ultimate Bundles, Genius Bloggers Toolkit, etc. ).
If you make a purchase I then receive a commission depending on the agreement with the affiliate. This system helps to off-set the cost of running the blog. It also enables me to continue to share with you. When I have affiliate links within a post, there will be a notice at the very top of the post. This is to inform you for legal disclosure.
While we will not disclose your personal information to anyone, be aware that some affiliates may use tracking cookies for marketing purposes.
Now for the legal but important information for your privacy.
