On some pages and posts you may notice some affiliate advertising… some might be specific items available online so there might be an amazon search box. For some things permaculture – books, resources, recommended things there might be specific links to the permies.com digital market. My goals is only to recommend specific things – I may do some book reviews in the future.
We have had quite a bit of discussion in the family – who have taken some pursuasion to agree that I do it. But I want to be clear, the purpose of having this advertising is not to “monetize” our blog and make a million – but simply to try and cover the annual cost of the domain name and the website hosting plan. The costs are not exorbitant – about €60 a year in total. And we are not completely skint either, but it’s at least 3 years before either of us start getting any sort of pension so every penny, cent, stotinki helps!
Please give me your feedback in a comment below – from what I have read it would take a lot of effort and time to make a decent living from promoting or pushing affiliate marketing and we (I) dont want to be under that pressure or commitment to a daily grind!
