As you may know, I sometimes make money through a variety of means with this space. 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 to promote something, I will always mark it with [AD] at the beginning of the caption or post. 

Gifted Items/Experiences/Trips

Whether in blog or social media post form, will always be marked as [Gifted item/experience/trip] 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. 

Promoting my own products

Advertising of my own products or services such as ebooks, coaching or products will be denoted with [AD – My x] e.g: AD – My ebook, AD – My coaching services]. 

Affiliate Links

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 [Aff] on Instagram Stories. I will then mark individual links with [Aff] 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!
