Occasionally, if I feel like (or am otherwise obliged to be) reviewing a particular product on this website, I’ll provide a link to buy the item on third-party website, from which I’ll get a small commission if you buy the item after following the link (typically 3–5%).
I want to remain completely transparent about this setup in order to avoid the kind of distrust so prevalent in the world of affiliate linking and online revenue in general.
My main goals for this website are to tell my own stories of adventure in the hope that they will be of interest to others, and to help more people live adventurous lives through what little knowledge and experience I can share. Earning a small income through systems such as affiliate links ultimately enables me to spend more time on these goals by spending less time selling my labour in order to cover the costs of living. I am a frugal person, but some amount of money is still a necessity. I hope that this equation is clear enough, and that you will deem my objectives worthy of your support.
The usual kind of disclaimer follows: you should be aware that the opinions I express about these products are purely my own, and I provide the links for informational purposes. Whether to buy the item or not is a matter for your discretion, and I can’t be held responsible for the failings of any third-party websites or manufacturers.
(But since I only recommend products I use myself and believe in, I don’t expect this to happen very often!)
Thank you for reading!
