Formal Disclosure Policy About Advertising & Affiliate Relationships
This blog may accept forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions, or other forms of compensation. Even though the owner of this blog may receive compensation for posts or advertisements, I always give my honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences on those topics or products. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely the blogger’s own. Any product claim, statistic, quote, or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider, or party in question.
Some of the advertisements are generated by a third party ad network. Those advertisements may or may not be identified as paid advertisements.
This website contains endorsements for products and services, which means when you click on a link from this website and take a specific action, such as making a purchase or signing up for an offer, The Homeschool Collective may receive a commission. Not every link is an affiliate link (like links to external resources and references), but some are.
The Homeschool Collective is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com.
Informal Disclosure Policy About Advertising & Affiliate Relationships

It means that when you click on a link that I recommend, I may receive a commission. Not every link is an affiliate link or advertisement, but some are. Some products will be my own.
I may occasionally place banner ads on the site that will also result in commission. Furthermore, some of the text/image ads throughout the site are generated by a third party ad network like Google AdSense. These are not explicitly endorsed by me; they are chosen by via an algorithm.
If you have any questions about affiliation with a certain product or ad, feel free to contact the author of the post in question for additional details.
