From time to time, I may mention a product or service that I like and recommend. If there is an affiliate program tied to the item or service, I have decided to to take advantage of those programs. Why not? There is no additional cost to the reader and if a purchase is made, I’ll make a commission. It’s a win-win.
I don’t believe the existence of the affiliate program will affect any of my recommendations, but it’s possible that it might.
I am also registered as an Amazon Associate. If I link to a product at Amazon I earn from qualifying purchases at no cost to buyers.
