Affiliate Relationships and Links is supported in (very small) part by advertising and affiliate links. Most of the links in the network to outside merchants (such as or are affiliate links. This means that if you click on the link and purchase the item, or other items on that merchant site, The Network will receive a small commission.

It might go without saying, but we’d better say it anyway: Our linking to an item for sale doesn’t necessarily mean we like it, though we usually don’t bother to review it unless we do. You should be able to see what we think of it by the post containing the link.
As for the Google-type links and advertisements on some of the pages, they’re served by means of the advertiser’s own mysterious algorithm, and may have nothing to do with either our content or our opinions. But sometimes they hit a reader’s fancy right on the nose and we get wee commissions from these, too, for which we’re grateful.
Thank you for supporting us! These affiliate commissions help keep this site on the air!
