This blog policy is valid from 1/25/2016 until I find the need to update it.
This is my personal blog. All posts are written by me, Leah Nieman. On occasion, I include Amazon affiliate links in my posts. I’m a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com. The inclusion of an affiliate link will never influence or change my opinion on a topic or product. In fact, I’ve opted not to join other affiliate programs or write any paid reviews because I want total freedom in writing. This means I want to write my honest opinion free from any paid obligation. If someone contacts me (and they do) asking me to review their app, I do so without pay.
Every now and then you will see me promote the product of a friend on my blog or in my newsletter. While this person may offer an affiliate program, I don’t take part in it. Again, it’s because I value my readers. I want you to know you can trust my opinion and suggestions. I’m not making money off them.
The exception in the Amazon affiliate program. Since Amazon offers a huge variety of products, it gives me the ability to choose the products I want. They don’t ask me to recommend certain products. I simply grab links for products I am already recommending. If you happen to like those products and purchase through my Amazon affiliate link I do earn a small percentage (at no increased cost to you). I tell you at the beginning of a post when I’ve included Amazon affiliate links in the post. Those percentages add up to help provide for the cost of this blog.
I won’t claim to be an expert on a certain topic or product. What I will do is try my best to share as much detail about products I love and find useful. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer or provider.
Always feel free to visit my site for recommendation and information. Again, don’t feel obligated to purchase through my Amazon affiliate links. However, if you are interested in anything you read about here, I certainly do appreciate the support if you choose to purchase through my Amazon affiliate link.
