As mention in my disclaimer, I use affiliates throughout my site to recommended books, services and travel stuff I own, love and use often. My favourite love-it-so-much-I’d-drink-it mosquito repellent is a good example. What does this mean? To you – business-as-usual, not a whole lot. To me – I receive a small commission on any resulting sales (my dog’s “college fund” for squeaking balls, dinosaurs and assorted small mammals).
