Blunt-Therapy publishes articles about mental health, substance abuse, relationships, and parenting. We also promote services and products that we find useful.
In order to meet the costs associated with website management, we have chosen to display ads as well as to recommend products through the use of affiliate links. Yes, this is a way to make money. No, we don’t recommend anything we don’t actually think is a quality product.
So let’s talk more about affiliate links.
In many cases, when we recommend a product, we’ll link to the company’s website using an affiliate or referral link. If you end up buying a product that you found via our link, we get a small commission from the seller.
Sometimes that commission is a few dollars; sometimes it’s more. Sometimes it’s a one-time commission; sometimes it’s a rolling commission — so if you sign up for a monthly subscription service we might get a percentage of that fee.
The important detail here though is that the referral doesn’t cost you a penny. The entire commission comes out of the vendor’s pocket, not yours.
And we’ll never recommend a product simply because it pays us a commission because that is unethical.
We recommend products that we’ve personally used or that come highly recommended. Please be advised, though, that the efficacy of products related to mental health are highly subjective. So please be careful, do your research, and make purchases that enhance your own quality of life.
Each post we publish has a notice that affiliate links may be used. If you are unsure which links are affiliates and which are not, go ahead and assume it is an affiliate link. That way you’ll always know.
If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact us.
