This blog was started to share my love of gardening and plants, backyard wildlife, recipes for fresh vegetables, and to share my experiments and the things that I have learned from them. However, I am trying to make some income with it as well, as it takes a lot of my free time (though I enjoy it!), a girl’s gotta make a living :).
I do review some products on this blog that are linked to the retailer’s website and thus hopefully allow me to earn some income from (though not all products on this blog are). I always try out and use these products before I recommend them (or don’t recommend them). I am not paid to give a positive review nor am I given free stuff to review, I just tell you how the product is as I see it. The products that I review are things that I have purchased because they sounded useful or interesting, and then I am recommending them to you (or sometimes not recommending them) just as I would to a friend. Then maybe you’ll click on the link I provide to purchase it if it appeals to you. I am given a small percentage of sales through affiliate programs if you use that link. I do not recommend a product simply to make money. If I don’t like it or it didn’t live up to its marketing promises, I won’t recommend it. I’m not going to make a ton of money off of this blog, but I’m hoping the funds will help support this passion of mine.
