I seldom accept advertising on TMG because I feel that an advertiser should share the values I promote on TMG. Thus, as of this writing the only ads you’ll see on TMG are ads for my books, and during August, September and October of each year – GetGarlic.com.
(Also called affiliate links or disclosures as required by the FTC in the U.S.)
When writing about something I think may interest you I often include links as a starting point for your exploring the item for yourself.
If the company has an affiliate program that I qualify to participant in (such as Amazon), I will. Then, if you follow that link and choose to make a purchase I will receive a small compensation at no extra cost to you.
It is another way I try to earn money to pay for TMG expenses.
