This blog is my passion project, and one day I hope it will be a source of great entertainment and education for millions of like minded people.
Until then, I do hope that the blog will in some way at least cover the modest costs associated with running a blog.
How am I monetizing the blog currently?
For now, the only way I’ve chosen to monetize this blog is with affiliate links, which are links to products or services that I recommend. I only link to products that I’ve actually purchased, used, and recommend to others. I will never recommend something for the sake of making money, because who needs that bad karma? I certainly don’t!
While this will may change in the future as this blog grows, for now the only affiliate programs I’ve tapped are the Amazon Associate program and First Republic Bank.
When you click on the Amazon product links and then go on to purchase something, the blog will earn a small commission. When you use my First Republic Bank link to consolidate your student loans, same deal.
How does this affect you?
There should be no monetary effect, positive or negative, if you use the affiliate links on this site. The benefit to you is that you can rest assured that I have already put in the research and time to trial the product or service, so you don’t have to!
If this makes you uncomfortable in any way, please don’t feel like you have to use the affiliate links. I really don’t mind.
