Affiliate Disclosure

The Blog Magazine provides full affiliate disclosure where appropriate across this website. In 2015, the Federal Trade Commission released its new rules for Disclosure Compliance.

These rules for affiliate disclosure are set in place to ensure that readers or viewers of web media (blogs, Youtube videos, etc.) know if the blogger/presenter is sponsored, endorsed, or partnered with a different company. In blog terms, the readers need to know if the blogger is making money by sharing a link or product.

In compliance with the FTC guidelines, please assume the following about links and posts on this site: Any/all of the links on are affiliate links for which compensation is received from sales of certain items. 

However, on any page containing an affiliate link we will explicitly disclose the advice in advance of the link.

What are Affiliate Links?

Affiliate Links relate to purchases or actions that are made on external affiliate company websites.

For example, when a reader clicks on an affiliate link located on that takes them to an external website, an affiliate commission is earned if the reader makes a purchase or performs a compensated action from the external website.

Amazon and/or other companies may pay a commission or other compensation for promoting their website or products through their affiliate program. 

Prices are exactly the same for you if your purchase is through an affiliate link or a non-affiliate link. You will not pay more by clicking through to the link. 

In some cases, you will actually pay less as we have incentive discounts from some companies we are affiliated with.

Affiliate Disclosure – Sponsored Posts

We do not write sponsored posts and prefer to bring you real, genuine, unbiased information.  The premise of this website is built on trust.

However, if a post is sponsored by a company and it is a paid sponsorship, we will disclose this information clearly at the beginning of the post.
