Yes, I get paid (regularly) for it
I do not hide the fact that I am paid for certain articles. Or that I have advertisements on my blog for which I receive a compensation. I’m glad I can because I’m a full-time blogger. And luckily, blogging is a real profession these days, where you can earn money. I write my blog posts with a lot of love and time and care and luckily there is an income in return.
Reviews of products received or paid for yourself
My heart lies in sharing as many tips as possible to women about body, mind, beauty, weight loss, ailments and lifestyle. The reviews on my blog are about products or services that I bought myself or received for free. So I was not paid for this. If that is the case, there is a sentence at the bottom of the blog post like – this is a paid blog post-. I write about products and services that I support 100% and give my own opinion about them.
I earn from sponsored blog posts
When a company pays me for an article, the words like – this is a paid blog post – appear at the bottom of the blog post. With a sponsored blog post, the client sets a number of requirements. This may be, for example, that certain links have to be added to the article or that there is a giveaway associated with it. But here too I use 3 golden rules: I write the articles myself, I give 100% of my own opinion and I stand behind the product or service I write about.
I get a small commission on affiliate links to webshops
Every little bit helps and that is why you will find affiliate links to webshops in a number of articles. Clicking on this link will take you to the relevant website via a special link. Nothing changes for you: you don’t suddenly pay more for a product! But if you buy the product via this special link, I may receive a small compensation of, for example, 10% on the product. I do this because I support these webshops and want to make it easy for you and to earn my sandwich to keep writing. So if you want to help me, make your purchase via these links!
Oh yes, a few more rights and obligations:
