We both put in lots of hours writing, designing, shooting, conceptualizing, testing, and editing the content you'll find both here and on our social media accounts, and we love every step of it.
Working on the internet full time necessitates monetizing portions of our content. We strongly value transparency, so we want you to be fully informed about what type of work we're compensated for. We support ourselves through this blog in two main ways:
- sponsored content - sometimes companies will pay us (either in cash or free product) to feature their products in our content. This type of partnership will always be clearly denoted, either in plain language at the top or bottom of a blog entry ('Thanks so much to [...] for sponsoring this post!") or by way of an appropriate hashtag on social media channels. (#ad, #sponsored) Please take our word for it that we never partner with companies we wouldn't otherwise be interested in supporting.
- affiliate links - some links on this site and on our social media channels are what are called "affiliate links." These links have tracking information in them that essentially pay us a certain commission based either on the number of link opens or the amount of sale dollars, depending on the terms of the particular affiliate program. The price doesn't change for you whether you access the brand's site directly or via our affiliate link.
Thanks for supporting the companies that help us keep this blog going!
