Affiliate Links

Throughout Oregon Girl Around the World, there are links to other websites and companies that promote and sell various 3rd party products and services that I think are useful and helpful. They can change frequently. These are affiliate marketing links and if you click through and purchase something, I receive a small commission at no extra cost to you. I promise to only provide links to products and services that I personally use and believe are beneficial. You win. I win.

All posts including affiliate links will be clearly marked.

Commission from affiliate marketing pays for the hosting and costs of running this website and maybe a cappuccino every once in awhile.


All comments are approved by the blog owner, me, Erin Gustafson. I make every effort to filter out comments that are defamatory, abusive, hateful, or written with the intention to incite a reaction among other commenters. I’m a big girl – I can handle constructive criticism or comments that disagree with one of my posts. Those suggestions will and can remain.
