About My Affiate Links
As my economics professors used to say, "There's no such thing as a free lunch." Everything costs something, and therefore someone has to pay for it. Same goes for this website. In order to keep it running, in addition to advertising my own products, I've also included affiliate links throughout this site to help defray the cost.
If you purchase something as a result of clicking on one of my affiliate links, I will receive a small commission, but there is no additional cost to you. Unless otherwise stated, I only include affiliate links for products that I've tried and recommend. The exception of this is books. I've included many book references, but there simply aren't enough hours in a day to read them all from cover to cover. However, since I've designed this website to serve as an information repository, I have included links to these as well so that the reader knows what resources are available on a particular topic, particularly those recommended by experts in the field. Max Farrand's The Records of the Federal Convention of 1787 is an example. Since many of the books I've referenced are historic and in the public domain, where available, I've provided links where you can read the book online for free.
Also note that as an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.
Rest assured, however, that I do not use affiliate links for products that I've tried and would not recommend. Conversely, for the sake of easy reference, I also link to products and companies that do not offer affiliate programs, but that I recommend anyway.
If you have any questions regarding the above, please drop me an email via the Contact Page. Thanks for checking out my website!
