I have quite a bit of followers with around 43,000 unique views. That`s a LOT of people! As you all probably know (at least those of you who regularly follow me) - I use affiliate links. MOST bloggers use affiliate links these days. Did you know using my links cost nothing to you? For instance, printing the coupons I post (even if just a single coupon) gives me $0.40 per day per computer/person. So if you just printed out a coupon you`d be paying me $0.40 for something you got to do for FREE. Even a simple click from time to time (don`t go crazy) on the `sponsored ads by yahoo` posted in blog posts pays me and makes a difference.
Do you shop Amazon.com? Many people do. By saving my affiliate link(https://www.amazon.com/?_encoding=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&linkCode=ur2&tag=clooffresam-20&linkId=QQSTKW2FIUBBXCCX) into your browser I will get a small *very small* percentage of your purchase. Yes, just copy and paste my link into your bookmarks folder or however you save links and each time you use it you will be giving me credit which I definitely appreciate.
In my case we NEED your support. Why? First of all I spend HOURS every day posting free samples, deals, product reviews, giveaways, etc. for you all. I rarely take holidays or sick days. Even if it`s only a post or two I do make the effort. I stay at home with my two children and homeschool while my husband works. So of course our income is limited. I`ve been on the working field end and the stay at home mom end and stay at home I find is more fitting for my own reasons. I love the opportunity to homeschool as well as watching my children grow up. YOU supporting me and using my links helps us continue with that.
Did you know that my web hosting costs me roughly a little over $1,000 per year? Yes - it`s expensive. My site is large to say the least and those who have been around have noticed the difference between various providers. I`m finally one a server with minimal downtime and when it happens they`re already in the process of fixing it by the time I get in touch with an agent. Cheap hosting doesn`t work for me. You using my affiliate links helps me pay that big bill.
Did you know that I am my own web site tech, owner, operator, marketer, etc? As much as I`d love to hire someone to run the "big stuff" for me it`s just not in the budget. But that takes a lot of time on top of the basic blog posting. The only "techs" I have is my hosting company. So basically I work full time for you guys doing something I love, but none-the-less is sometimes work that I have to push myself to do because I don`t want to let you guys down.
I sure hope I`m not sounding pushy by any means, but I want to stress how important it is for me that you take advantage of my links when you`re able to. I even post a lot of FREE offers. I may get $0.25 if you sign up for a free favcrafts ebook or similar items. So I`m not asking that you specifically buy stuff to help me, although I won`t argue if you do, but if you shop at Amazon or Disney or elsewhere, please consider using my affiliate links and supporting my site and family - it`s the best way to show your support next to sharing our site with your friends and family.
So please, if you shop Amazon, Walamrt, print coupons, or find a great deal - please remember Closet of Free Samples and that your support is always appreciated and no support or purchase is ever too small.
P.S. - I only try to post the "good" stuff - not spam. I hate that sort of junk and would like to keep a good reputation. If there`s ever questionable links, please don`t hesitate to contact me or simply leave a comment and I`ll take another look or respond to you if clarification is needed.
