Thanks for Supporting Click it Up a Notch

Have you ever noticed that some of your favorite blogs link up with items they like or recommend? Well, the odds are these are affiliate links.

What is an affiliate link?
Certain companies like Amazon offer affiliate programs to bloggers who post a link to an item they are selling. In return the company gives the blogger a small portion of the sale like 4-6%. This doesn’t cost the customer anything extra but it allows you to support your favorite blogs.

I know when I’m making a purchase of something I read about on a blog I try my best to buy it through that blog so they are able to make a small portion of the proceeds. They were the one who told me about it anyway.

Many of the links on my blog are affiliate links. In fact, the majority of the money I have made through these links go to help pay for my domain name, hosting, and blog templates. I am also donating 10% of all the money made through affiliate links to charity.

I wanted to take this time to thank everyone who has joined Clickin’ Moms through my link or bought anything through Amazon. I appreciate your support!!

    Love the rainboots! We spend many days running around in the house when the sun is shining with rainboots, raincoats, and umbrellas!

    I have affiliate links in this post http://www.miracrisp.com/2011/05/10-books-every-photographer-should-have.html and I have been using them for a while. Not that I have earned a whole lot! They are quite convinient because they are easy to insert and they give my readers all info. If someone buys a book throught it – great, if not – they still have a purpose. :)
