I decided a while ago that I wouldn’t be taking on advertisers here at the blog.
One reason is because I don’t want to promote things that I’m not passionate about. I like some of the stuff out there, but do I love it? Not always. In addition to advertising, many companies also request product reviews and I’m not a big fan of those.
The other reason is that I don’t want to take a risk in doing so. I’ve been to many Christian blogs where I’ve discovered that they don’t have the level of control through their advertising that I’m comfortable with. I don’t want my readers to receive wisdom from Budda or parenting tips from a gossip magazine. I want this to be a safe place for readers to land.
But I have made a change. In order to cover some of the costs in running this blog I’ve decided to use Amazon affiliate links. If you click through the link and purchase something at Amazon, I get a small percentage of that purchase back at no additional cost to you.
I’ll have them in my sidebar and if I’m linking to an item within a post I’ll use it there as well.
I’ll only be using them if I’m recommending a book or product that I’m passionate about. Or if it’s an item I want in my sidebar.
You are loved by an almighty God,
