Sometimes we use affiliate links. What does that mean? It means that if we’ve used a product or service and liked it, and that product or service has an affiliate program, we sign up for it. Then, when we mention that product or service in one of my surveys and blog posts, we link to it using our affiliate link.
Should you end up buying something as a result of one of those links, we might get a little sumpin’ sumpin’ for my pocketbook.
If you’ve hung around my site long or know me well, you know that we would just as soon eat barbed wire than sell our soul to make money off of you on a product we don’t even like. You know this, we know this. But, alas, the FTC isn’t sure you really know this. It assumes your discernment is on par with that of a hapless turtle.
And that is why we wrote this disclosure – to empower hapless turtles to make an informed decision before clicking on an affiliate link. There should be no question that if we feel comfortable with a product or service and refer it to you, we don’t mind making a little money for that referral. We hope you would do the same.
