As you might have suspected, yes, I do try to make money from this blog. I am not raking in the dough by any means or even making minimum wage, given the enormous amount of time and effort I pour into this blog every day. Although I do love this – it’s my passion.
So how exactly do I make money from this site?
I have a number of third-party affiliates including Amazon, Commission Junction, Share-a-Sale, ImpactRadius.com, LinkShare, Escalate Network and PepperJam. Phew! I think I got’em all.
What I want you to know about my advertising methods.
While I enjoy working on this site, I want to make something very clear. I am not out for a “quick buck”. My goal is to build a site which is successful for the long haul. There have been times I’ve refused to post ads because I felt they were inappropriate for my site and which you would view me as less favorably. Making a few bucks is not worth risking the reputation I’m working so hard to build.
What I want you to know about doing the deals I share.
Please understand I work hard to make sure if I post a deal they are true and accurate. If I unknowingly make a mistake in a deal I post, I will retract and/or clarify as soon as it is brought to my attention.
I urge you all to make sure you double-check any deal you find on this blog or any other site. Also please note I cannot be responsible if a store decides not to honor their offer, change their offer, cancel their offer, or if sale items are unavailable or out of stock at your particular store. Unfortunately, this has and does happen. Finally, you might be interested to know I’m posting out of the Southern California area, so prices and deals on my blog may be reflective of my geographical area.
I whole-heartedly welcome the sharing of opinions on this blog! Even if you don’t agree with everything I say, you are welcome and encouraged to voice your opinion.
I do ask you follow these common sense guidelines when leaving a comment:
:: Please avoid profanity and vulgar language.
:: Please avoid making discriminatory or racist remarks.
:: Please do not make personal attacks (such as name calling).
:: Please keep things on topic.
:: Please NO SPAM!
A final word to fellow bloggers and deal sharers: leaving your referral/affiliate links in the comment of my post or promoting your business without direct permission from me is strictly prohibited (plus, it’s incredibly tacky). If you continue to do this, expect a very firm email from yours truly.
You should know I very, very rarely delete comments. Why? Because most of my readers (that’d be you!) are completely awesome, know how to exercise good judgment and fair play and keep things clean.
