Thank you for taking the time to come to my blog and discover all things we can learn and share together. The truth is, this blog wouldn’t be what it is without readers like you. In order for me to keep the site going and pay for web hosting and such costs associated with creating my content, I have several methods of income production active on my site.

Ashley Silverthorn (showmeashley.com) is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com. All post that contains amazon.com links are associated with this affiliate program. Advertising fees are earned when a visitor clicks on an Amazon link and makes a purchase from Amazon.com according to the terms of the Amazon Associates Operating Agreement. You can view that agreement on Amazon.com to see how your clicks earn an affiliate a small % of income.
I also have joined various affiliate networks in connection with products and services I already use and love. You will always find the following image on a post that contains an affiliate link where I will make a small commission if you purchase something from clicking on an affiliate link. There is a special code in my link that lets the company know you are coming from my blog to their site. It’s how they track my commission. Those small commissions help me keep the blog running and help support my family so I appreciate when you do.
