WHY DO SOME POSTS HAVE A LOT OF LINKS? (Affiliate policy)
For every person who says, “Why so many links?“, there are many more asking, “Where can I find that?!”
Some of these links may be affiliate links, which means if you click on them and buy something, I get a small piece of that sale at NO additional cost for you. I truly appreciate when you do this, because it's a way to help me continue sharing free content with you here on the blog. Keep in mind that I'm very picky about what I endorse and who I work with, because these are foods or products I use myself or for my own family.
If you have benefited in any way from this site and the time spent gathering, researching, organizing, writing & maintaining the information you find here (and in many cases emailing or messaging with you privately to try and help, which I am happy to do!), then making your purchases through the links for recommended food or products is a way to say thanks. 🙂 This helps pay for the ongoing *expensive* cost of keeping up the site, whether it's web hosting, domain renewals, programs needed for different features, paying assistants to help keep it up, or any number of daily problems that arise. Just as there are many repairs needed around your home, the same is true of a website.
AT THE BOTTOM OF EVERY POST/PAGE ON THIS BLOG:
Please note this paid endorsement disclosure (the FTC makes me put this here): “In order to support this site, I may receive monetary compensation for my endorsement, recommendation, testimonial and/or link to any products or services from this blog or social media posts.” This includes Amazon or other affiliate links either here or on social media, as well as other paid sponsor links, but there is no additional cost if you click through these links and make a purchase, and often you’ll even get a discount.
Also a disclaimer: “The information found here has not been approved by the FDA and is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.” This notice is required by the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act.
