Affiliate Disclosure

Affiliate DIsclosure

In 2015, the Federal Trade Commission released their new rules for Disclosure Compliance.

These rules are set in place to ensure that readers or viewers of web media (blogs, Youtube videos, etc.) know if the blogger/presenter is sponsored, endorsed, or partnered with a different company. In blog terms, the readers need to know if the blogger is making money by sharing a link or product.

In compliance with the FTC guidelines, please assume the following about links and posts on this site: Any/all of the links on bloggingmechanic.com are affiliate links for which compensation is received from sales of certain items. 

What are Affiliate Links?

Purchases are made on external affiliate company websites: When a reader clicks on an affiliate link located on bloggingmechanic.com to purchase an item, the reader buys the item from the seller directly (not from bloggingmechanic.com).

Amazon and/or other companies may pay a small commission or other compensation for promoting their website or products through their affiliate program. 

Prices are exactly the same for you if your purchase is through an affiliate link or a non-affiliate link. You will not pay more by clicking through to the link. 

In some cases, you will actually pay less as we have incentive discounts from some companies we are affiliated with.

Sponsored Posts

We do not write sponsored posts. I want to bring you real, unbiased information. 

However, if a post is sponsored by a company and it is a paid sponsorship, I will disclose this clearly at the beginning of the post.

    The Blogging Mechanic

    Hi, I'm Owen. I provide WordPress Technical Support Services to bloggers who prefer to forget about the technical stuff so they can concentrate on content creation and blogs.

  • Blogging Mechanic
  • For those bloggers that do enjoy getting their hands dirty, I also write short practical tutorials for Bloggers on how to get technical stuff done.

    This site is new, part of a new direction and a work in progress!

  • Posts on this website may contain affiliate links, which means I may receive a small commission, at no cost to you, if you make a purchase.

  • Recommended Hosting

    Having used various hosts over the years, the two I particularly recommend are Cloudways and Siteground.

    Cloudways is superb for those considering starting (or moving to) a WordPress blog as they let you try it out for a few days without committing to purchase.

    I set up a lot of Mailing List integrations with WordPress - Mailchimp, GetResponse, AWeber, Constant Contact, Infusion and others, but one I particularly like is MailerLite.

    MailerLite has a beautiful, clean and intuitive interface and is perfect for Bloggers to start a list.
