Advertising & Affiliate Compensation:
We receive compensation on this website. We often have advertisements displayed on this site. At this time, we only use 3rd party companies such as Google Adsense and others to display advertisements, and also use some affiliate programs. If you are a company or organization interested in advertisements, please do so through these companies. Any advertisements should agree with the policies of the company used, and should not break any of the terms and conditions set forth by the company or laws set forth.
We may, (at our discretion) engage in other forms of compensation in the future, including product endorsements or other materials, however, at this time we mostly only use PPC advertising and affiliate programs.
We try to filter the advertisements that show on the site as much as possible to ensure they reflect the ideas and opinions promoted on the site. However, some ad programs target keywords and search terms and then display ads that go against our personal beliefs. Again, we try to filter these as much as possible. Please understand that we do not endorse or share the same beliefs of any ads that may display on this site.
We may sometimes offer reviews of products, recommend products or services, and/or link to products. Sometimes, we may have an affiliate relationship with the product or service being referenced, and earn a commission or advertising fee from this. We do this so that we can continue to provide free information and value to our readers, while being able to cover our expenses such as web hosting, advertising, and so forth.
Some examples of compensation we receive are: Google advertisement income, Affiliate commissions from our Amazon Nursing store & Amazon product referrals, Referrals for our college affiliate programs, and other products.
Even though we do receive compensation from some of our product referrals, endorsements, or advertisements–we strive to offer truthful reviews and opinions about those products, and only offer products we feel are of value or interest to our readers. We turn down any requests which we feel are of low quality, or no interest to our readers.
