In running a website/blog like this, one of the ways to compensate the owner/writer of the site is to use advertising (like TV or radio).
This allows you, the reader, to access information for free, which means you will be exposed to advertising on this site. Some of it is obvious (like ads on the sidebar) and some will be less obvious (like affiliate links embedded in the post text). This disclosure policy is my attempt at being transparent in how I use advertising for the purpose of compensation.
I love traveling and love that I can to make money at it, but making money is not my primary purpose. Providing a valuable resource for my readers is my priority. I post ideas and places that I believe my readers will enjoy and benefit from. Sometimes this make me money and sometimes it does not.
When I come across a wonderful travel destinations, I do try to find a way for the manufacturer, company or promoter to compensate me. Here are the ways I sometimes make money:
Affiliate Links — There are occasions when I am compensated when you click on a link, submit your email address, sign-up for an offer, print a coupon or buy a product or service. There are occassions when I am not compensated.
Campaigns and Sponsored Content — I sometimes partner with brands to promote a product or service that I believe is valuable, benefits my readers and is appropriate for my readers. I am compensated for my time by these brands and/or public relations companies monetarily or with free product.
These relationships are always disclosed in the post and I will always give my honest opinions, findings or experiences.
Referral Credits — There are occasions when I am able to receive site referral credits when readers sign-up or purchase a product or service.
Advertising Images — I am paid directly for putting some of those ads on the blog.
The revenue made from this site covers the expenses associated from creating and maintaining it and compensates me and my family for the time I put into it. You should assume that the links in posts are some type of affiliate or referral links. It may not be, but better to assume so. You are always welcome to get your deal through another link.
The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely mine. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.
