Per the FTC regulations, this is a full disclosure and explanation of how and when I am compensated on living-contently.com.
living-contently.com is a homegrown effort to share my passion of living healthy, being frugal, and finding contentment with others. My husband and I do all that we can to live a balanced life and to allow our choices to be reflections of God’s direction in our life. I don’t necessarily have any “formal” training on any of the topics about which I write, but I do have the experience of making better financial choices to help us get out of debt, to live within our means, and to be good stewards. As far as health and wellness, my husband deals with a chronic condition daily, so we focus on staying active, eating well, and getting plenty of rest to help meet his health needs. And, regarding natural health choices, I just decided one day that it would obviously make us feel better to put less toxins in our body.
By creating this blog, I aim to share that journey with you. I won’t claim to be a professional blogger, but I will admit that I spend a good deal of time creating content that is relevant and hopefully understandable. It is also my goal to allow this blog to grow and expand as is guided by not only my own interests but by the interests of my readers.
To be able to keep all of my blog content free yet be able to pay the costs associated with running a blog (hosting fees, domain name, my time), I accept a variety of forms of compensation.
I created living-contently.com because I have a desire to positively impact the lives of others and to share my tips for living a more satisfied, healthy, and budget-friendly life. The beauty of the blog is that I am able to make a small income doing what I love.
My Personal Beliefs
It is my goal to maintain true to my personal beliefs as I blog. As I share personal tips and favorite products, I will not promote any item, product, or life tip that I do not fully believe in. If you find a product or content on living-contently.com, you can be sure it is something I love and use myself. I focus my content to be beneficial to my readers and will not share anything that I do not believe is valuable to you.
My content is always my honest opinion and is a direct reflection of the purpose God has given me. The content on living-contently.com is intended to encourage and inspire others to make choices to live healthy, be frugal, and live contently. If any information is not in line with that focus, it will not be on living-contently.com.
Periodically, I will accept a product to review if it is in line with the general theme of living-contently.com. I will only accept products to review that I feel will benefit you as my readers. I do not sell my opinion, and any review I provide is written with 100% honesty. If you see a product shared on the site and do not see a disclaimer, I was not compensated for the review but thought you’d appreciate the information or product.
I also periodically accept guest posts to be written by others and published on this site. Again, I only accept posts that are in line with the theme of the site and contain beneficial information. I only accept content from individuals and companies I believe in and that I feel would be genuinely interesting and helpful to you.
Another one of the ways in which I am compensated is through sales or leads generated through affiliate marketing links.
I want you to know that I never include any link or post for the sole purpose of making money. I try to be very selective about what I promote and take the time to consider each and every option prior to including it on living-contently.com. Many of the affiliate marketing accounts I use are with companies that I have used for several years prior to blogging.
Some of the companies that I use and promote include:
By clicking on an affiliate link and making a purchase or signing up for a service, I earn a small commission, which helps to keep this blog free.
