Hi, I’m Jenna and I like complete honesty! Occasionally that get’s me into some trouble but not when it comes to being real about blogging. I blog because I love it and because I want to share real life with my readers.
Blogging costs money and, as the surprised (because I didn’t give birth to these guys and wasn’t planning on any more children) single parent to two little boys with special needs, I don’t have a lot of it. Actually, I have none. Which is why I have some advertising on all of my websites. I try my best to choose ads that make sense for my readers and always make sure they are family friendly and meaningful to our site.
I also like to work with affiliate programs because I like to share sources and products that I’ve tried myself and loved. Affiliate links are included in my posts at times which means if you click the link and purchase something I receive a small commission. That doesn’t affect your purchase price but it does help me to feed my picky little boys and keep this website running. Affiliate programs that I currently work with include Amazon.com, Share-a-Sale, Commission Junction, and a few other resources that I feel are a good fit with our readers. I choose my affiliates based on good experiences with the company and high quality products and services.
Occasionally, I accept paid sponsorship for sharing information about a product or resource. This doesn’t mean I don’t give my honest opinion, regardless of compensation. If I liked it, you’re going to hear about it. If I didn’t, or I had concerns, you’re going to hear about that, too. Because I write a blog, not a fairy tale. My personal opinions or testimonials are exactly that….mine. There’s no guarantee you’ll feel the same way or have the same results and that’s okay. If you didn’t have the same experience or you don’t agree with my opinion, I’d love to hear about it. We’re cool like that around here.
Having said all of that, this website is a positive place. Life is pretty hard sometimes. Don’t make it harder. If you’re trolling, looking for a fight, or disparaging of others, you’re in the wrong place and your comments will be removed.
