When an article I’m writing presents an opportunity to link to a product or service I use and approve of, I will include an affiliate link, which means I will make a commission if you click through and make a purchase.
This does not increase your cost and the experience should be completely seamless. As of this writing, most affiliate links are to Amazon and anything you buy when you click a link there will give me a small amount of commission.
I never endorse a product solely to make a commission, but instead try to link to things I have experience with or think will be helpful and applicable to the topic within the article.
Why an Affiliate Program?
I spend as much as 3-6 hours writing an article. When I can, I take unique photos to use in the articles, which takes more time. What I write, I write from the years of experience and time spent to accumulate that knowledge.
While I absolutely love writing and sharing my knowledge and experiences, I also like to make productive use of my time. Income generated from my writing enables me to further pursue the topics I write about, learning more and being able to return that value back to my readers by way of more articles and information.
