To comply with the FTC and be fully transparent, Special & Determined does use affiliate links and other means to monetize this blog. Maintaining and running a blog takes time and money and by monetizing my site, it helps to offset the cost of keeping my blog going.
Amazon: I am part of the Amazon Services LLC Associates program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon properties, so there are times that I will use “referral links” to Amazon in my posts, but I will make sure to inform you of these referral links.
Third Party Advertising: please note that this site does use third party advertising to display ads on the sidebar or through the site when you visit it. These companies do use aggregated information (not including your personal information: name, address, phone number) to provide information about your visit to provide you information about goods and services you might be interested in.
