Affiliate Links

This is a little disclaimer post.

I recently decided to try affiliate links on my blog. Along with a couple google ads you may have noticed, this is my first attempt at monetizing my blog. I'm hoping a couple simple things will cover the cost of upgrading hosting and design services. (If that sounds like a foreign language to you, we're in the same boat. I am just now learning a few very surface level things about web design, hosting, etc...)

Anyway, affiliate links. This means that sometimes, I will link to something and if you were to buy it through the link I posted, I would get a teeny tiny payment for the referral. If it's an amazon product, it's probably an affiliate link. All other links are not affiliate links unless otherwise noted.

In case you're unfamiliar with Amazon Affiliates, you can read more here.
Basically, they're paying a very small amount to get the benefits of word-of-mouth type referral advertising even though they're a huge company. It's a win-win.

In the past, I've often linked to Amazon as I've mentioned things we like or use, especially kid and home related stuff. I never received affiliate fees for those before, but decided to try it out hence forth.

Disclaimer over.
