You Have Affiliate Links? Why?
Yes – I have affiliate links on this website. Why? Because it is nice to make a little money to cover the costs of running this blog. I want to be able to take more time to devote to this blog and the little money (trust me, it really isn’t much) that I earn from the affiliate links goes right back into making this blog even better.
How Much Do The Affiliate Links Cost?
The affiliate links don’t cost you anything. You still pay the regular price for a product and since I referred you, the advertisers give me a small (very small) percentage of the sale. I don’t make much or any regular amount of money. The goal is to make enough money to cover the hosting costs and such every month but I rarely make enough to do that.
How Do You Determine What Kinds Of Products/Services You Promote?
I only promote products and services that I truly believe in and trust. The only products and services that are promoted are ones that I am familiar with, have experience with, use myself, or even ones that I enjoy. I would never promote a product just to try to make money because at the end of the day I consider my readers as friends.
I Use RootsMagic4
I received a free copy of RootsMagic 4 at Jamboree 2009. I tried it and fell in love in love with the program. I really love the layout of it, the features, and how user-friendly it is. While I sometimes write about RootsMagic, I am in no way affiliated with the company or was I asked to write any positive reviews of the product. I just really enjoy this program. All of my opinions are my own.
I do not post press releases but when I do, I hope that they are able to help others.
