As a blogger, I’m required by law to comply with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
As a human, I believe being transparent is the right thing to do. That’s why I’m creating this disclosure page to let you know that I do make money from this blog.
Every now and again I include products or services in my posts and pages that directly or indirectly provide monetary or other substantial benefits to me.
If you’re reading this blog, then you should know:
- I get a direct benefit from every post and page I put on this blog. Whether that is a monetary or simple joy of helping others, I’m benefiting from it.
- If you see an external link with a prefix /go/, then it indicates that is an affiliate link. What that means is if you click on that link and purchase a product, then at a no-additional cost to you, I will receive an affiliate commission.
- I do write about my own products and websites, so yes that means those projects get additional PR and exposure.
- I run my own consulting company, so it is possible that this blog may help me land new clients.
- I attend and speak at a lot of events. I usually get compensated for the speaking engagement. Occasionally I may receive Press benefits to attend larger conferences.
- I make a lot of friends thanks to social media and business travel.
- I do get a lot of freebies that I test and review. Often vendors send me those freebies in exchange for a review. However, that doesn’t mean that they get a positive review. If I don’t like the product, then I will slam them. That’s just the way I roll.
I’m 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.
It’s important that I emphasize that the words on this blog are mine and are not influenced by any sort of compensation. I only recommend products or services I use personally and/or believe will add value to my readers.
