Money, Cash for Comment, and Payola
If you’ve made your way to the Disclaimer page, you’re probably interested in how I’m making my millions and rolling around like Scrooge McDuck in a vault full of dollar bills.
Truth be told, i’m not making millions, nor do I have a vault. I’d be unlikely to have a vault full of dollar bills in the instance I was making millions – they wouldn’t be very useful here in Australia, where our dollars are coins and our shrimp are barbie’d.
Unless I state otherwise on a blog post, I’ve come across a book, product, or service and paid for it (or leveraged a free trial). I’m unlikely to ever receive anything for free! Rest assured though, that anything received for promotional purposes will receive the same level of scrutiny and care that I would apply to something I paid for myself.
I plan to utilise some affiliate programs to try and offset the costs of running this site – it’s safe to assume that any link to a product or service will be using an affiliate or referral link if it’s available. These links will usually give me a small percentage of your purchase at that site – on products I link you to, and other products as well for a period of time.
- Book Depository – All my book links have an affiliate code. I get a percentage of your spend, and it doesn’t cost you anything
- Evernote – Where I reference and link to Evernote, I use my referrer code. I get points if you buy premium, which I can use to extend my Evernote premium subscription!
