This website is a labor of love on my part. Creating and maintaining a blog takes a great deal of time. Time that I am not compensated for. Artists, musicians, writers, and creators need to eat too just like everyone else. That is why I have chosen to monetize my blog. I am not looking to get rich just to afford lunch while I continue to pursue this dream. Every little bit helps and I want to be as upfront and transparent about this as possible. I have written this disclosure statement below. On each post that has a monetized link, you will see a disclosure.
I will not review any product or service unless I have actually used the product/service firsthand. I will very rarely give a negative review. If I have tested a product or service and I find it seriously lacking, I will notify the company and/or product rep and not mention it again. I see no benefit in providing any type of attention to a bad product or in wasting your time reading about a bad product/service.
If I have been compensated in any way, I will clearly state that in the post. Compensation will in no way influence my opinion or endorsement of a product.
This website uses affiliate programs for monetization, which means when you click on links to various sites that may be recommended in posts or visible on this site and make a purchase, I receive a small compensation from that site. If you click a link from one of my posts or newsletters and it delivers you to a website selling that product (e.g. Amazon.com, etc.), I get a small commission from that website when you buy. This does not affect the price of the item or cost you any additional money.

Some of the text and image ads that appear on this blog are placed by a third party (Google AdSense) and sponsor ads. I do not personally endorse the products and services advertised in these ads. I have no control over which ads are placed by these advertising services. These companies are not affiliated with EvelynDortch.com.
If you have questions about any affiliations on this website, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I’ll be more than happy to clarify or provide additional details if necessary.
