Disclaimer: I’ve been studying online business, as a hobby, in the past few years. I’ve been especially influenced by Pat Flynn, who’s recognized as one of the nicest and most decent people in the field. (His podcasts and blog are fantastic.)
Following these types of ideas, when something I’m talking about on this website naturally has related products that can be shared through affiliate links, I’ll probably do that.
These affiliate links give a little bit of a commission to me when people buy, while costing nothing extra for the person buying. As you’ve likely seen, a lot of companies nowadays have these programs (like Apple, etc.).
It seems like a really good fit when doing things online: It can help the person creating content to get paid back a bit for their work. And it literally costs nothing for the person who’s buying.
Please know that I’ll only include affiliate links when they seem genuinely helpful and worthwhile.

The other companies I currently have an affiliate relationship with are Apple and eBay. So, if you click through one of my links to iTunes (for instance), and then buy something there, I’ll receive a small commission at no cost to you.
This is a fun experiment. And one which I hope will allow me to spend more time creating content online.
Also, I love Apple (and I love when people support musicians by buying their music). So the idea of including things like iTunes affiliate links when talking about the work of great musicians seems like a true win-win-win-win.
I hope you’ll concur. And thanks if you purchase through any of these links.
