SeedTime is funded by advertisements and affiliate relationships. However, we always have and will continue to only personally recommend or endorse something if we feel that it would be of value to the readers.
I only recommend stuff that I truly love, use and happily share with friends and family. If you ever have an issue with ANYTHING I recommend, please let me know.
Your trust is the far more valuable to me than a quick buck, and I take pride in the quality of my recommendations. And even though I use or have used 99% of the products/services that I recommend, it always helps when I hear the experiences of others too.
Some examples of Affiliate relationships that help fund this site are… Capital One 360, Rakuten, Amazon, Ebay, TradeKing. Each one of them are products or services that we recommend and they also have some sort of affiliate or referral program as well. These are what we love because we can help readers by pointing them to good resources and tools and help fund SeedTime in the process.
On the other hand when our opinions about products change we let it be known (knowing full well that it will reduce compensation). For example, we wrote about Cash Crate and continued to update the article as our opinions about it changed. We are well aware that earning the trust of our readers is far more valuable than the commission from few affiliate sales.
Feel free to contact me anytime with any questions you may have.
