An Oregon Cottage is a personal blog written and edited by me, Jami. Please don’t hesitate to email me should you have any questions or concerns.
While 98% of my posts are content that I write for no monetary compensation (hello, preserved boxwood wreath fail!), I do accept forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions, or product for review. The time and costs associated with keeping AOC going grow every year. Please be confident, though, that the compensation received will never influence my honest opinion of the content, topics, or posts made in this blog.
I will always disclose whether or not I have received a free product to review within each post, as well as letting you know if there are affiliate links within an article. AOC is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites.
In addition to Amazon, I do occasionally use other affiliate programs as well, such as Reward Style and VigLink. When you purchase from any of these affiliate links I receive a small commission (without affecting the price you pay for it) which helps to keep AOC running and able to bring you more good things – so thank you!
I have worked hard to build trust with you, my readers, and I will not jeopardize that for any amount of money. There are many opportunities that are emailed to me that I don’t think you guys would appreciate and are not a good fit with the goals for myself or AOC. So you won’t see it here.
In addition, I will never tell you I like a product I’ve agreed to review when I don’t. I am very selective about the affiliate products I support and the products I accept for review or to giveaway and you can be assured that these high standards I set are with you, my blog reader, in mind.
The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely my own. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.
