Let me explain why I link to Amazon.com, Amazon.ca and Amazon.co.uk marketplace on this website (BakingBaron.com):
- I am part of the Amazon Associates program (and related programs for Amazon.ca and Amazon.co.uk sites). It allows bloggers and website owners, like me, to earn some commissions by referring people to the Amazon marketplace.
- If you visit Amazon through a link on BakingBaron.com and buy a product within 24 hours, I may receive a small commission. The commission is calculated as a percentage of the sale price. So if you buy a $100 pressure washer through a link on this website, I will receive around $3.
- The reason I chose to partner with Amazon is that it has the widest selection and often has the lowest prices, as well as Free Shipping on most baking accessories.
- It means nothing to just say it, I know, but the commission is not enough to retire, to say the least. Creating BakingBaron.com wasn’t a way for me to resign from my position as a teacher. About twenty-two years ago, I started baking on a regular basis, which opened up a whole new world for me. And I wanted to record my findings in order to be of assistance to others. In addition to hosting, domain registration, and content management system (CMS) fees, the commissions cover these costs.
