Due to the recent FTC ruling that all bloggers must disclose the payments or free gifts they receive, here is my full disclosure for this site.
For book or software reviews:
I am part of several blogger networks which provide free books for the purpose of reviewing. Occasionally, I also receive software to evaluate and review. As a blogger, I can be completely honest and I do not have to provide a good review in order to receive free products. By providing free books, the publishing companies and authors get great publicity from many people when the books are released. I commit to being objective and fair in my reviews, and I end up giving away most of the books after I read them. You can find many of these books in our church library as well.
For Affiliate Links and Advertisements:
By linking to products, books, and services, I may receive compensation. When you click on product links or site advertisements and then make a purchase, I receive a small commission. The key word here is small. In the future, I hope to use this income to pay for the hosting and other expenses that arise from blogging.
