Disclosure Policy

According to the FTC Ruling for Bloggers, I need to tell you that I make a little money blogging — specifically, if you click through my links and choose to buy something.

I’m certainly not getting rich from blogging. But I do pay some bills to do my blogging — for domains, for hosts, for tools. So anything that comes in makes my wife that much less concerned about what I pay for my hobby. :)

These are the principles that guide any affiliate links I use on this blog:

  • I’m not going to flog you with random junk! When I endorse something, it’s because I believe it could be valuable for you.
  • I’m not going to explicitly call out each link. Instead, for any seller listed below, my links to them are affiliate links. For example, each Amazon link is an affiliate link.

Note that if you click through to a product, then buy it (or anything else) from that seller, it costs you nothing extra.

Why not turn this into a virtual tip jar for this blog, and start your shopping here? In other words, if you’re going to buy something anyway, start by clicking on a link below.

Thanks in advance!
