This site is my passion as well as my full time job!
Which means, from time to time I will feature sponsored posts, sidebar and banner ads as well as affiliate links and product reviews. Let me explain how each one works!
A sponsored post is when a brand approaches me with a product or service, often for me to try out and review but not always. They are looking to highlight their product in a dedicated post where I am compensated for featuring their brand, product or service. I only accept these sponsored posts if I truly like, believe in, and can stand behind the product or service 100%. Believe me when I say, I only accept things I think are awesome and that you will too! I wall ALWAYS let you now when a post is sponsored.
My site does utilize affiliate links. Affiliate links place a cookie on a readers computer for 30 days. If you follow a link and make a purchase within that 30 day time frame, I will be compensated a small amount from a third party. It does not affect your purchase whatsoever, there is no additional cost to you, ever! Think of it like a tip jar, but instead of you tipping, the brands are tipping me in your place, but you still get the good karma for clicking my link!
Side Bar Ads & Banners:
These are fairly straight forward. Sometimes a brand will want to rent out a small piece of real estate on my blog. I have a dedicated space on my sidebar or occasionally banners, usually placed at the footer of a post, where I host ads. Just like my sponsored posts, I only accept ads from brands and companies I dig and believe are useful and can serve some purpose to my rad readers and visitors!
Product or Service Review:
Sometimes a brand will reach out to me in hopes of a simple review and they will gift me some items. If it is an item of clothing integrated into an outfit, I will mark the item in my description “c/o” to indicate “care of” from that brand. Not all gifted items I receive make it to the blog, I only feature the ones I love to bits.
I use these tools to help maintain this site and allow me to continue bringing you quality content. As I said, this blog is my passion, I love helping bring accessible plus size clothing options to rad babes!
I always indicate if a blog post is sponsored or if affiliate links are utilized at the bottom of a post like this:
* Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. I have been gifted these items and compensated to feature them. The review is my own and is 100% truthful. I stand behind the fact that I do really, really do use these products! I will never host a sponsored post that I do not wholeheartedly want/love/support/utilize.
***This post contains affiliate links, actions you take from the hyperlinks within this blog post may yield commissions for margotmeanie.com which never add to your cost if you choose to make a purchase but make it possible for me to maintain this site and chase my dream job. ♥
TLDR; I’m Margot Meanie and this little blog here is my full time job! I write and source out helpful products and brands that will make being a plus size babe a little easier. Sometimes I get compensated to write about or feature a brand and sometimes I use affiliate links to make tiny commissions off of purchases you may make if you click a link from within my site, at no extra cost to you ever. I only agree to feature things I think are awesome and useful! I will never accept anything I cannot stand behind 100%. I make it clear to brands that when I am giving my opinion, I will ALWAYS be truthful, otherwise, what is the point?
