All Rights Reserved
We love referrals! When sharing any material from DommiesBlessed we ask that you link back to our site and give full and clear credit to the original content. Any unauthorized use and/or duplication of this material without express and written permission from us is strictly prohibited.
DommiesBlessed is reader-supported. This means, when you purchase through one of our affiliate links, we may receive a commission.
Our current affiliates include (but are not limited to…)
We link to products we absolutely love, have transformed our personal lives and that we would recommend to our own family.
This requires intense, lengthy, and in-depth research via our personal use and/or resources. So our posts often take weeks if not months to complete. It also means we often recommend the same products across multiple forms of content.
We do not get compensated if you are dissatisfied and return your purchases. So our goal is to gain your trust by delivering on the promise that our suggestions are fairly-priced high-quality products that you will actually use and will make your lives easier.
We also do not see personally identifiable information about you, when you choose to support us through affiliate purchases. Here's an example of a reader's purchase. All we know is what they bought, when they bought it and how much it cost.
Occasionally, we link to products referenced in videos we may include on our site. This is to make it easier for you to find all the information in one place. For example, if we include a hair tutorial to demonstrate how to braid, we may also link to the products used in the video even though we have not tried them ourselves. We noticed viewers frequently stopped and replayed sections of the videos where products were displayed. So we would find the product and link to it, in order to make it easier for our readers to find exactly what they are looking for.
We're intentional about limiting where the ads show up, as we do not want to ruin our reader's experience. Our intention is to diversify our income stream, so that we can continue providing free content to our visitors.
We are tremendously grateful for everyone who chooses to donate to DommiesBlessed (especially during our beginning stage). We intentionally did not choose a non-profit entity, because we hoped to build a platform valuable enough that visitors were willing to spend their hard earned dollars. We strongly feel that this is a more sustainable approach for the long-term. We understand this approach also takes time. Since we are not a non-profit, contributions, gifts or membership dues made or paid to DommiesBlessed are not deductible as charitable contributions for federal income tax purposes.
If you have made an error in making your donation or change your mind about contributing to DommiesBlessed, we will happily honor your request for a refund made within 15 days of your donation. To request a refund, please contact us. Refunds are only made using the original method of payment.
