This blog uses affiliate programs for monetization, which means when you click on links to various sites that I recommend in my posts and make a purchase, this can result in a commission that is credited to this site, and used for site maintenance.
I have chosen to only recommend products in my articles that I use and are verifiably helpful to myself. Feeling many may help from my long-term use and physical experience of specific products. On the flip slide, there are MANY products that do not work, which I may compare reactions to, if needed.
To date, I have spent hours, weeks and months researching various subjects and have made the choice then, to not include affiliates. However, there are some products that I firmly believe in that have helped me with various pains, or convenience. The only affiliate will be Amazon. As I buy 99.9% of my items from Amazon. Shipping speed and availability cannot be beat.
As of the introduction to affiliate usage, I have not included them in my sites, yet. When I do, I will usually be able to offer savings to the customer when purchased through my links via a code. At time this code is one use, or if a generally high-priced item is on sale (these tend to sell out quickly), difficult to find, etc.,
This site will not use THIRD-PARTY & SPONSOR ADS. I really dislike a site that I am trying to read that is constant pop ups of ads. Which is why I will not incorporate third party or sponsor ads.
