Per FTC rules, bloggers are required to disclose any possible biases or interests that may be hidden from readers in regards to any recommendations made.
Instead of using a new disclaimer each time I link to a product on Amazon, this is a blanket policy to cover all such events.
My decision process for recommending products is simple, and goes something like this: “Is this useful to my readers?” If it’s not useful, I won’t recommend it. For the record, anything that is entertaining is most certainly useful.
No, I haven’t been paid to recommend any products.
If I were to get a review product for free, I would state that in the review.
Yes, I use affiliate links to Amazon, Clickbank, and other sites when referring products. If you click on the links and buy the item I get a commission. It costs you nothing extra. If you are bothered by this, feel free to look up the site on your own.
Lastly, I make my recommendations in two ways. First, if I have used the product myself and found it of quality, I will recommend it. Second, if I haven’t used the product myself I rely on the reviews others have given it, whether individual reviews, or those written on Amazon.
If you disagree with this, please don’t use my links.
Thanks for your support and understanding,
