I earn a living as a blogger in the following ways:

1. Ads

Advertisements on this blog. The main ads you see here are Google Adsense ads. I occasionally also place ads from other sources as well. Either way, it’s very clear that they are ads.

2. Affiliate links

I post a lot of DIY tutorials and show products I recommend by linking to those items on affiliate sites. These links are a helpful way to show which products I am talking about so you know what to look for no matter where you shop.

Doreen Cagno/Hymns and Verses is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, which is an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising (at no additional cost to you) and linking to;

3. Etsy Shop:

You can find home decor items that I have designed (art canvas, art prints, digital downloads, pillow covers, wall signs) in my Hymns and Verses shop on Etsy.

4. Mary & Martha

I am a Mary and Martha consultant and do receive a small commission from any sales made through my Mary and Martha website.  Mary and Martha products are shipped directly from Mary and Martha.

5. Sponsored Posts

I am sometimes compensated to provide opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics.  Even though I sometimes 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.

*Now that I’ve listed my income streams, I want to add a disclosure to the disclosure. My main source of income is from the ads. You know…the annoying ones. The income from the other four things is minimal at best. In order for me to keep this blog going, I need to run the ads. I have not had a reader complain for a very long time, so I hope that means you are all OK with them. They are a fact of my life and allow me to do what I do. Thank you so much for your understanding and support.
