Privacy, Terms, & Disclosure

Thank you so much for taking the time to read my blog. It really means the world to me that other people enjoy the things that I have to share. I started this blog as a way to document precious moments of my growing family. I still mostly use it for this purpose (in addition to sharing our homeschool experiences), but I also have a few other goals in mind, and I feel it's important to be honest and upfront with you about those goals.

Monetization - What's with all the ads and links?

I have chosen to monetize this blog (AprilsHappyPlace.com) through affiliate links and display advertising. I love blogging, and with so many ways to monetize these days, it's hard to not give it a try!

My husband currently works two jobs so that I can be a stay-at-home mom and homeschool our boys. I love that he is such a wonderful and willing provider and so supportive of my desire to educate our children in a safe and loving home environment. However, I also wish he was home more! We really like having him around, and we miss him when he works long hours.

Our family does most of our shopping on Amazon. The way I see it, I'm going to be linking to products I love on Amazon anyway, so they might as well be affiliate links!

Affiliate Links

So what is an affiliate link anyway?

When you click on an affiliate link and make a purchase, I earn a small commission at no additional cost to you. The commission I earn is for recommending the product. I promise to only recommend products that I have actually tried, tested, and loved.

I am currently an affiliate for Amazon.com. For details about what information they collect, visit Amazon's privacy notice.

Display Advertising

Display advertising works a little differently than affiliate marketing. The term "display advertising" refers to the ads you see on my site. For those, I get paid (or not paid) depending on how many people visit my blog. All you have to do is put up with seeing ads on my site. I try to keep them minimal and out of the way so you can still focus on my content.

Privacy Policy

Because I use display advertising here on AprilsHappyPlace.com, my site uses cookies to collect information to make the ads you see more releant to you. I use Sovrn to display ads on my site. For more information on how they use cookies, please visit their privacy policy. Cookies for display advertising are not collected for users in the EU. If you would like to opt out of display advertising, you can do so here.

Cookies are also collected for other reasons, such as stats (so I can see how many visitors I've had on my blog) and email subscriptions. My blog is hosted through Google's Blogger.com, so you can also view Google's privacy policy for more information.

I use Mailchimp to collect email addresses for my newsletter (when you sign up to get new posts sent to your email). For more information on how MailChimp uses your information, see their privacy and terms.

Terms of Use

Thank you so much for coming here and enjoying my blog with me. If you see something here that you'd like to share, I ask that you please share the link to the original post (in other words, link back to this site). All free printables may be downloaded and printed for personal use only. Please do not share the downloaded file. If you'd like to share a free printable, please share the link to the original post. ❤

That's All Folks!

Again, thank you so much for taking the time to read my blog. Writing here brings me so much joy, and I love sharing that joy with others. Your love and support means the world to me!
