2) LINKS: I will sometimes use affiliate links on my site – this means I get a small (very small) payment when you make a purchase, but costs you, my readers nothing. I spend all money I make on my blog so it helps to keep me running. I created a tag for posts that contain affiliate links – “contains affiliate links” when they are knowingly included.
