Privacy & Disclosures

Disclosure Policy

This policy is valid from August 15, 2017. This blog is written and edited by me, Ali Michelle.

I do not accept any form of cash or paid topic insertions. However, I may accept and keep free products, services, travel, event tickets, and other forms of compensation from companies and organizations. If somebody sends me free stuff—yippee!

Posts and pages throughout Living Simply may contain affiliate links. If you make a purchase through those links, I receive a small commission at no extra cost to you. Those small commissions help me maintain Living Simply, and I'm incredibly grateful for your support. You can read my full policy HERE.

Affiliate Relationships I maintain an affiliation with several companies. BUT—I assure you, I will discontinue that affiliation and cease any recommendation of their product(s) if I no longer trust and believe in a particular company or service. I will be honest with you in everything I write in this blog. If something sucks, I’m going to tell you it sucks. If something is fabulous, I’m going to tell you it’s fabulous and recommend you give it a try.

I have no interest in deceiving you in any way. My views and opinions are my own. I will only endorse products or services that I believe in and either use myself or have thoroughly researched.

Specifically, I am a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for me to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites.

My Motivation Do I want this blog to make money? You bet! The more money it makes, the more time I’m able to commit to developing it. BUT—that DOES NOT mean I put making money before my readers. Without you, this blog is worthless. I’ve never been terribly motivated by money. Now, let’s be real for a minute—that doesn’t mean I don’t like money. Everyone loves money! I just mean that the success of this blog, this community, and the trust of my readers IS FAR MORE important to me.

So there ya go! I will always be honest with you regardless of the benefit, or lack thereof, to myself or this blog.
