As a blogger, I do make money. Not much but some. The FTC recently passed a ruling that all blogs must disclose their financial relationships, or face heavy fines. You can read the press release here, or the full ruling here.
The Pistachio Project uses affiliate links for products that I would write about anyways. When you click on an affiliate link, The Pistachio Project gets paid a commission. It’s no extra cost to you and it’s just a way of supporting this blog.
To be in complete compliance with the FTC, here is The Pistachio Project’s full disclosure:
