I receive affiliate revenue when you click links to the following vendors and make a purchase:
- Laptop Lunches
- All Things for Sale
- Kiwi Crate
- Little Passports
- Olive Box
- Mabels Labels
I also feature several other affiliate banners in the side bar. If you make purchases from those companies via those links I will also earn a small amount of money.
I occasionally write sponsored posts for companies. While I’m compensated to write these posts and I’m usually given a topic for the post, please be assured that I always speak honestly and write about my own experiences. I won’t accept sponsored posts that require me to write about topics I wouldn’t naturally post about on my blog. I also clearly label all sponsored posts as such.
Hosting giveaways can take a fair amount of my time, but I like to do them because they’re a way of showing Wendolonia readers how much I appreciate that they visit my site. I really do love the community here! There are three basic scenarios when I do a giveaway:
- I purchase the items with my own money, pay to mail them out to the winner myself, and receive no payment.
- A manufacturer provides the giveaway items, one of us pays to ship it to the winner, and I receive a similar item for review or as compensation (sometimes not though).
- A manufacturer provides the giveaway items, the manufacturer ships it to the winner, I am paid for hosting the giveaway.
Once again, I will always disclose whether I received a product and/or money when I host giveaways.
I do not accept payment for product reviews. I will occasionally accept products from manufacturers so I can try them out, but I always write my honest opinions when I do this. (Once I wrote a review that used the word “yucky” as the primary word to describe the product. True story!) Sometimes when I post a review, I am paid to host a giveaway of the product as well. Please be assured that when this happens, I still write honestly about the product (Seriously, you should check out the “yucky” post) and I always disclose that I have received compensation.
But usually, I’m not paid to write or post anything on Wendolonia. Making some money from my blog is a nice bonus and it helps pay my family’s bills, but the truth is I would still have a blog even if I didn’t make a dime from it. I like writing, I like taking pictures and I like sharing my adventures with you, my readers!
