This site, LeahNieman.com, is owned and operated by me, Leah Nieman. I launched this website because I’m passionate about raising kids with a healthy perspective of technology and social media. My goal is to provide resources for parents, grandparents, teachers, youth workers, and teens so we can enjoy all the benefits of technology while having balance in life. Offering up-to-date information on technology does require a great deal of time and research on my part. In addition to speaking and consulting, I pursue various streams of revenue to pay for this site and the services necessary to maintain it.
PAID ADS, REVIEWS, AND SPONSORED POSTS
I do not 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. This means when you read something positive or negative about a product or service you truly are getting my 100% non-biased feedback. You are also getting that feedback after testing the product or service on all devices it’s available on- Android, iOS, and Kindle.
For the past 11 years I’ve been recommending resources for raising kids with a healthy perspective of technology and social media. Many of you have asked that I list these resources on a page here at LeahNieman.com. So, I now have a Recommended Resources page. This page does include affiliate links for the resources. Please note, these are resources I was already recommending. Joining their affiliate program does not persuade me to promote them. Rather it gives me an opportunity to make a small percentage at no cost to you, should you go to their site and purchase their product. You will also find affiliate links for products from my recommended resources page on articles when those products are relevant to a particular topic.
I’m also 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. 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 will 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.
Please note, none of the articles on my website are paid ads. I write all the content. If I like a product and feel it’s a quality product, I’ll tell you about it. If I think a product is fluff or crap, you won’t see it on my site…period.
