Being an affiliate means that I work with certain companies (such as Amazon), to advertise on my website. I am given a tracking link, and when a potential buyer clicks on that link and makes a purchase, I may be given a small percentage of the final cost. (There is not extra cost for you– if you click any of my links, no additional charge will be added to your final cost just because I may recieve a cut. Actually, in many circumstances, you may be given a discount also!)
