Affiliate Link Disclosure
I’ve been very reluctant to join affiliate programs. Affiliate programs are where I get a small percentage kickback of anything you purchase through an affiliate link on my site (you incur no additional costs but Amazon shared a very small percentage of the purchase price to me). Although I am still very, very selective about affiliate programs, I decided that I could use a little help supporting this blog. Between hosting, design, professional services, and bells and whistles for the site, I can pay up to a thousand dollars a year. Since you love us, and find the information I provide useful, I know you want to support us in this small way.
Anytime I place affiliate links in my articles, I will denote it by “affiliate link” in parenthesis and I will link to this page (which is probably how you ended up reading this in the first place) with my affiliate link policy.
I’ve chosen to work with the Amazon affliate program because I already shop there, and a Prime member, and love them. I know they are a trusted business and manny of you already shop there too.
The Amazon Afiliate program requires that I make this legal statement to participate:
“YouDidWhatWithYourWiener.com is 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
