How Affiliate Links Help Keep This Blog Going

Some readers had trouble with a recent post and were confused when they saw an affiliate marketing link connected with the Etsy store link.  This is not a error.  As you can see from the disclosure statement on every post (see below), I do earn a small fee if readers chose to purchase at those sites via affiliate links in some of my posts and through ads. Circumventing them or using ad blockers hurts this blog.

Keeping this blog going is a real labor of love and has been for nearly 12 years.  I want it to continue being an invaluable and free resource for all. It takes a lot of time and effort behind the scenes to deliver what you see on the blog.  I always aim for what I think would be of benefit and interest for readers. Negotiating for giveaways is another way I help both the largely small businesses and designers involved as well as providing a means to reward loyal readers.

There are costs involved in discovering and delivering all the carefully curated and great content to so many of you everywhere. So those small fees earned through affiliate links makes sure I do not incur out of pocket expenses. Affiliate links also save me a lot of time as readers do ask where they can buy this or that.

For those who have and will happily found great books, useful products you love through those  links in order to make the kind of jewelry YOu want, I thank you! I appreciate the help in keeping this blog going while you shop.

  1. I'm so glad you shared this with your readers, Pearl! Your blog is one of my favorite resources, and the small compensation you receive through affiliate links is far less than you deserve for providing such a rich and inspiring resource. Not only do your readers benefit from your curating, but you shine a bright light on the artists you feature. I know this because you have featured my products on this blog, and I have benefitted from connecting with your devoted readers when they visit my shop! I love what you do!

  2. Thank you Laura for your kind words! They mean a lot to me!

  3. It doesn't take much effort to temporarily remove ad blockers when looking at different products. I do it all the time on many blogs.

    I think the knowledge, inspiration, and sheer joy of discovering new artists and new ways of creating far outweigh that miniscule inconvenience.

    Keep on doing what you do Pearl. My creative life is better because of you.

    1. Thank you so much for your support - it means a lot to me.

  4. The only thing that would be better is if you got a "big fee" from products purchased through links. That's an easy way for your readers to support this blog. Thanks.

  5. Thank you for the time and effort you put into every blog entry! It provides available resources and tools to all who read!


You're AWESOME! Thanks for the comment and feedback. You do make a difference on my blog!
