Hey there! First off, I want to say thank you for your support with Creatively Lauren. For the past five years, it’s been awesome having this blog and it’s because of your support! However, running this blog isn’t cost-free. I don’t run ads on my blog, I think they look inorganic and unnatural, but I do use other ways of making money on Creatively Lauren including affiliate links and donations.
Affiliate links are links that generate commission based on a purchase you make after you click that link. These are one of the most common ways that influencers/bloggers use to make money, because they just have to talk about something that they already love and enjoy using.
If you don’t want to use an affiliate link, you can always give a direct donation.
