This blog serves a dual purpose. The primary purpose is to help both myself and others become educated about disaster preparedness and survival readiness as I work to develop my own readiness plans and work to put them into action. The secondary purpose is to generate income that will help me and my family in our efforts to become better prepared for the unknown.
As such, this web site contains advertisements and affiliate links. My policy for choosing affiliate links is, basically, to decide to recommend or provide information about something and THEN check to see if it has an affiliate program that I can sign up for before I post a link—not the other way around. If a product or service that I believe my readers should know about does NOT have an affiliate link, that will in no way prevent me from posting an unpaid link to it. In other words, whenever you see an affiliate link in a post, you can trust that it’s to something that I would have linked to anyway, but if there is an opportunity to be compensated for the link, there’s no reason for me not to take advantage of it.
If you have an aversion to affiliate links and begrudge this blogger the small commission I would make from your using my link to purchase a product or service, that’s between you and your conscience. Be that as it may, I would appreciate it greatly if you would at the very minimum help to support this site by simply clicking on one of the non-affilate ads so I can get paid for your click. This costs you nothing more than a second or two of your time, and it helps me to know that you appreciate the time and work that I am putting into this site.
Another way to show your appreciation for the information that I provide is to make a small donation via Paypal. There are different amounts for you to choose from if you use the Donate button in the sidebar, or you can use Paypal to send any amount you see fit to jmbauhaus at gmail dot com. Any little bit you can spare will help, even if it?s literally just a quarter. All proceeds from this blog will be used to help dig my family out of debt and finance our journey to become better prepared to face difficult times.
