According to FTC regulations, all bloggers are required to disclose how they earn money on their blog.
How I make my money:
- The sponsor ads you see on the sidebar, and similar. If you click on an advert and buy a product, I will receive a commission. You will not pay any extra for your purchase.
- A few affiliate links via Amazon that you’ll find throughout the site, and on the Shop tab. If you click through and buy, again I receive a small commission, but you pay no extra for your purchase.
- Adsense links in sidebars and posts, again if you click I recieve a small payment for referring you to the advertiser.
- Links to my Etsy Shops
I don’t receive any income or benefit from hosting giveaways on this site – they are simply there for the benefit of my readers.
Why use the blog to generate income at all?
When i first started this blog it was on a free account. In order to grow the site and offer you a better experience i needed to upgrade to a blog which was ‘self hosted’. This means I have to pay a fee every month to host the blog and host a newsletter. I love providing free patterns, but every little helps with the up keep of the blog, as it quickly adds up. I would never recommend any product on this site, simply to generate income. This blog is intended to be a community place for toy knitters, and your trust is much more important to me than money.
