Affiliate disclaimer

Some of the links on this blog are affiliate links, and if you purchase products or services through these links, I may get paid a small commission, the amount of which varies from product to product. This costs you nothing, but it supports the costs of my blog. So if you want to buy any of those products that I recommend, just use the link from my website! If I recommend any product or service here, it is for sure something that I really recommend, and I’m not getting paid to do advertising for any of those. Maybe it will change someday when I become a famous blogger, but then I will let you know, and I will state in huge letters that the recommendation is sponsored.

I am a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, which is an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.com. Although I provide these affiliate links on my blog for your convenience, I have no control over these external websites and they are solely responsible for their own content and information presented.
