Periodically I will review or mention products and services on my website. If I believe it is a good product, and the merchant selling said product or service offers an affiliate program, I have no issue referring others to the product via an affiliate link, which means I may receive a commission or some form of compensation if you buy the product I recommend.
Why am I explaining this?
I am not required to comply with the FTC affiliate disclosure policy, BUT I believe it is the right thing to do.
I would never falsely represent a product just to receive an affiliate commission. If you think the use of affiliate links taint the reviews or recommendations I write, you are welcome to get the hell off of my website – and be sure not to let the virtual door hit you in the ass on the way out.
