The FTC, which has completely ignored serious schemes which defraud consumers for the past eight years, has now decided to investigate and go after individual bloggers who have the nerve to try to make some money from the sites they spend hours and hours making useful to the public. Any of us who use affiliate marketing and suchlike are now open to FTC interference. This is similar to the IRS going after the minimum-wage earner who mows a few lawns while ignoring the Mark Rich and Bernie Madoff types. In other words, completely ridiculous. So, here’s my big fat disclaimer:
Big Fat Disclaimer
If you click on a link that leads to Amazon.com and actually buy a book, DVD, or whatever, I’ll make a few pennies. If you click on a link from an advertisement and actually buy something, I’ll make a few pennies. If I have a link within some text that takes you to a site that sells something and you buy from them, I’ll make a few pennies. I will only use that type of text link when I have personally bought the product or used the service and honestly feel I can recommend it.
If you hire me to write copy for you, install your WordPress blog, or host your website, I’ll make more than a few pennies, and you’ll be helping me in my goal of creating a location-independent income stream to finance my new life overseas.
