FULL DISCLOSURE ON SPONSORSHIPS & AFFILIATES

StampinFool.com is a blog written and edited by April Waltrip. This blog is all about DIY decorating advice and how to decorate your home, along with my home renovations and projects. 

Part of having great style and knowing how to decorate is research. You can trust that I browse and browse for hours finding the best products and ways to do things in my home. We narrow down the options to the ones we feel best mesh with our colorful, new traditional style- and always family friendly design. Because function is so important in design. Sometimes I will reach out to a partner for a project that I have decided to do on our home for product or in exchange for sharing their product. I’ll fill you in on all of the details as to how and why I chose to work with that vendor. 

If we promote a product or service, it’s because we love it and know it’s a good fit for our DIY home decor space. By doing these sponsorships it keeps the blog running and makes the hours spent blogging worth it monetarily. 

AFFILIATES

I also occasionally use affiliate links to share where I did buy something. This means if you love where we got that bed, and click on the link and end up buying something, we’ll make a small commission on the sale. This source of income definitely helps keep the blog going. Affiliate links are not sponsored, and we’re not being urged to highlight affiliated products. All of the products I share are things we truly love – some will be affiliated, and some won’t be.

ABOUT BLOGGING FOR A LIVING

Luckily, I earn a living as a blogger. It’s a job that I love because I can’t help but share everything I know about decorating. When I am not decorating for clients, I can decorate for myself and teach others how to decorate. I earn money blogging in the following ways:

1. Ads
The ads you see on https://stampinfool.com are managed by Mediavine ads. These appear in my blog sidebar, header and footer and in posts on my site. These are images that clearly look like advertisements. If you ever see one that isn’t on brand- please screenshot and email it to me. I DO NOT want anything spammy or inappropriate. We are super selective about ad categories we allow on the blog.

2. Affiliate links
Most of my posts are DIY project tutorials. When applicable I show products I recommend by linking to those items on affiliate sites through Amazon, ShopStyle or affiliate programs I reached out to. (See the full section above on affiliates & brands).

3. Sponsored Posts

Additionally, I sometimes reach out to companies for a sponsored post opportunity. I can be compensated to provide opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics.  Even though I receive compensation for posts or advertisements, I always give my honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences on those topics or products.

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.
