I never specifically post about a product for the sole purpose of advertising it. If I’m talking about a particular item, it’s because it is relevant to something that I have recently experienced or enjoyed. I do not build posts/articles around advertising. Ever.
Due to my affiliate relationships, I sometimes receive a commission when you click through my site and buy products on a partner Web site. Every link that I post is most certainly not a commission opportunity for me, and it is not my intention to ever post links to products and websites frivolously. That’s silly, it irritates me when other people do it, and I won’t ever do it.
Jogger’s Life also contains periodic links (as well as sidebar buttons) to other websites that I own, but clicking on these buttons does not earn me a commission. It just makes me smile.
Beginning December 1, 2010, I will include a disclosure statement on every post that could generate a commission to me as a direct result of an action you take.
Jogger’s Life has an ongoing advertising relationship with Peak Performance Fitness. Clicking through their display ad (which appears on the main page of Jogger’s Life), results in no direct commission on a per-click basis.
From time to time in the advertising section, I also feature companies who have provided me with a product for review and/or giveaway on Jogger’s Life. This is merely a consideration for products that I enjoyed and that have been provided free of charge, and visiting these websites does not result in additional revenue for me.
I do not (and will not) advertise or promote anything that doesn’t jive with the content or purpose of Jogger’s Life, regardless of the money-making opportunities. I receive tons of requests to promote products and services that are honestly not geared towards my readers or my purpose, and I respectfully decline these offers because they would be a waste of everyone’s time.
If you find Jogger’s Life to be motivational, inspirational, funny, quirky, or just plain enjoyable, please do click, register, and/or buy through the links and ads on my site. This provides compensation for my time, and helps manage website upkeep, race entry fees, running shoes, and asthma inhalers.
