Hello! Running this website and TeachingTraveling.com is one of my life’s great joys, but, alas, it can get expensive due to costs from my monthly web-hosting, tech support, and so on. To offset these costs, my two sites contain some affiliate links (ex: this page), which means if you purchase a product through them, I receive a small commission at no extra cost to you. For example, I am a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide bloggers with a means to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites. Per FTC guidelines, all affiliate links are clearly labeled as such to dispel confusion, and I aim to only link to items and services that don’t stink (and in fact, are fabulous and provide great deals). Further, I sometimes receive goods or services such as hotel stays for free, but always disclose when this is the case and provide my real opinions.
What about the general safety of this site? As a germaphobe, I work very hard not to get people sick, and I do not wish to make your computer sick, either. Given this, I have paid top dollar for the best web security partners, and my two sites use SSL software and are regularly scanned to prevent and destroy malware. Huzzah for safety!
