StretchADime.com is a personal finance blog I write as a hobby. Per the FTC guidelines, I hereby disclose that StretchADime.com earns income through advertisements and affiliate relationships with several companies.
The affiliates are generally companies that I buy products from, use one of their services, or I believe that they have something that will benefit my readers. It is safe to assume that every link on my blog could be earning me money through advertisements or affiliate relationship. Advertisers and / or affiliate partners have no editorial input to the blog posts that I write.
For example, if I like a company’s product and what they have to offer, I usually sign up for their affiliate program and use their affiliate links in my articles. I use the affiliate links in my articles only if I believe it benefits the reader. This allows me to earn money through my blog in an ethical way.
