Per the FTC regulations, this is a full explanation of how and when I am compensated on AMessFreeLife.com.
AMessFreeLife.com began simply as a way to provide information and resources for those struggling with debt who want to learn as I had how to live a simpler, debt free, stress-free life. As time has gone by, I found myself transitioning to a full-time writer and blogger.
In order to keep all the content of my blog free but still be able to pay all the costs associated with running a business, including hosting fees, blog design, my own time and that of those who help me, there are many ways in which I am compensated. I love what I do and I love being able to provide all the useful information you can find here at A Mess Free Life, but I also get paid for doing this full-time job.
What You Can Expect
My integrity is extremely important to me. I will never promote something if I don’t feel it is worth your time, energy, or hard earned money no matter what they offer me to do so.
I’m a tell it like it is kinda gal and as such, if I tell you I like something, I mean it. Same goes for if I didn’t like something. My opinion is straightforward and honest – my personal guarantee to you.
I will never knowingly lie or mislead you just because I think it may make me some mullah. Yes, I have bills that need to be paid, but I value my readers too much to mislead you.
Freebies, Reviews, Underwritten Posts
Sometimes I accept free items from marketers or companies. Often I use those free items as contest prizes here on my blog or Facebook page. If I happen to get one for free myself, I will be sure to disclose that to you. Conversely, if I talk about how much I love my new Kindle Fire, it’s because I bought and paid for it myself or it was given to me as a gift by a family or friend. Bottom line – I’ll always tell you when I got it from a marketer or company.
On occasion, I also accept opportunities to write an underwritten post and reviews. However, you can rest assured that I will only accept this type of opportunity when it is a post or series that will be helpful and valuable to my readers and is something that fits well within the parameters of my blog.
Another source of revenue for A Mess Free Life is commissions made from sales or leads generated through affiliate linking.
Again, I will never link to something just because it is an affiliate link.
The following are some, but not all, of the companies, I frequently link to using affiliate links:
- Smart Source
A Mess Free Life 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.
Just to be clear, clicking on an affiliate link and printing a coupon or signing up for a service or ordering a product will be earning me a commission & helping me keep this blog going.
