I blog for a living. That means that I make money from this blog (gotta love my logic). “How does that work?” you may ask incredulously. Well, I run ads (as you may have noticed). I work with an ad network that acts as the go-between for bloggers like me and companies that want to advertise. I do not have direct control over the ads presented, but they are all supposed to be family friendly. If you see an awful ad, please take a screenshot and send it to me (you can find my contact form here)! If I have proof of it, I can ask my ad network to look into the matter and remove said ad. I hate ads and I think they look messy, but they are currently a necessary evil for me so I can make enough money to support myself and allow me to constantly churn out new (free) recipes for you. The other way I make money is through affiliate links, which you can find out more about here. In the future, I hope to do some sponsored posts, which would also be a means of making some money while promoting products that would be useful to my loyal readers.
Sometimes I do product reviews, which means that I am provided with free products in exchange for publishing a review of that product on this site. I always disclose when this happens, and I keep my opinions of the products honest.
