Yes, I know, and it’s a good thing that you know too!
I blog for several reasons. One of those reasons is because I like it, and because I like to share knowledge and information and tools. And I would love to do that even more and even better.
But that costs time and money. So one of the other reasons why I blog and make websites and such, is for money. Yes, I’m not going to lie about this, but in the end, the kids need food. And me too, even more! And there’s alot of bills to be paid.
So yes, you will find some ads on here. And some of the links that you find are affiliate links.
That means that each time you click one of those ads, I get paid a little. And that’s good. For me it is. And for you? Well, it doesn’t cost you a cent, so it isn’t bad.
And when you click on one of the affiliate links? You are brought to a product that I use or recommend. The affiliate links I use are mostly for Amazon and iTunes. Two stores that you cannot go wrong with. And if you follow the link, and like what you see, well, you can still decide if you order what I linked you to. And if you do, I get a small percentage of the amount you pay. And that amount is the same whether you go via the affiliate link or straight on amazon.com. So you it doesn’t cost you a cent. So that’s good again!
Why am I telling you all this? Because I want to be clear about what my intentions are. I don’t want to get you hooked on my website, only to wait until I reach 10000 visitors a day, and then start bombing you all with ads. I don’t want to trick you into buying my self-proclaimed “world-changing e-book”, which is just a copy from many others, but said in other words (I might still write an e-book later on, but only when I can guarantee the quality of it). I don’t want all that, I want to be honest with you, my valued readers.
So feel free to tell me in the comments how you feel about this. Am I wrong to put up ads? Are they damaging the quality of the website? Would you like some more information about which systems I use and why?
