SPONSORSHIP & AFFILIATE ADVERTISING

At this moment NickiSchroeder.com Showered In Grace is not accepting or producing sponsored posting. However if you feel this site is a good fit for you, please feel free to contact the site owner through the contact page and you will be considered for future possibilities.

This site currently does not offer any affiliate marketing or advertising. However, the cost to maintain this site and offer encouragement and entertainment to our readers is costly with things like site hosting fees, etc. Down the road it is very likely the owner of this site will carefully choose affiliates, ads, products, etc to work with to help cover the cost of site production. We promise when and if this occurs we will choose only companies and products we believe in and trust. Any written post that offer compensation for affiliates and products will be clearly noted within posts.

Update of 7/16/18 The owner of this site has created an Amazon Affiliate account and does plan on promoting some affiliate links in future posts in order to help with the costs to keep this site running. You will see the following words added to a post if there is an affiliate link included: “As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.”

Update as of 8/23 I am going to start trying to do some affiliate links in my posts to help me pay for the cost of maintaining this blog. I pay hundreds of dollars a year out of pocket to have this site active, this includes blog hosting, WordPress plugins, domain fees, design software, etc. My goal is not to blog to make a profit, but due to life circumstances, I’d like to try and see if I can recoup some of my out of pocket expenses by offering links to products I personally  use and stand behind. I will never link to something I wouldn’t purchase or haven’t purchased myself. If there are affiliate links in my post, I will have a post footer that states something similar to the following: (Note: some of the links in this post are affiliate links, and we will be compensated if you make a purchase by clicking through and using our links. Read our disclosure policy here.)
