As you may know, blogging is my full time job. Which means I am earning money through it in various ways. Let me break down those for you, so you can have a better understanding of when I’m being paid and what for…
Sponsored Blog Posts
These will always be declared with ‘AD’ in the title and then a sentence at the beginning declaring the partnership.
Sponsored Social Media Posts
Where I have been paid CA$H MONEY to promote something, I will always mark it with [AD] at the beginning of the caption, tweet or post.
Whether in blog or social media post form, will always be marked as [AD-Gifted] to comply with ASA regulations but also to denote the nature of the collaboration.
Previous Brand Relationships
In this case, if I have worked with a brand on previous but not current content I will inform you of the previous collaboration if it took place within a year.
I will declare whether there are affiliate links within a post, either within the title or the first sentence on my blog, or by using [AD] on Instagram. I will then mark individual links with [AD] on my blog so you know that you’re about to click one.
Affiliate links do not cost you money. They just kick back a few pennies to me and can be a great way to support creators!
If you have any more questions on how I earn money and how it affects you, please feel free to email me.
