I did not start this blog in order to make my fortune, but I am not opposed to making money as a result of the (hopefully) captivating content featured herein.

You will notice that the site contains advertisements and many of the links are affiliate links. This means that if you click the link and purchase the product, I will receive a check (the amount will vary).
Honestly, I am suspicious when I see affiliate links and ads on sites. I think, “Of course you are telling us how great it is, you hope to get paid.” I can not speak for those bloggers (I assume most of them are sincere), but I can say for me that I will not give an affiliate link for anything I do not use and/or think will benefit my readers. I retain the right to provide select advertising and sponsorship across this blog property for the right partners and businesses.
Examples of affiliate links are the Standard Theme and DreamHost. I use both of these services and am happy with them. I did not use them because of the affiliate opportunity. The reality is that most, if not all, premium themes and hosting services have affiliate programs.
Other examples that may occur in the future are links for Amazon books I review and stock photos I use. I am happy to share any of the photos I have taken myself for free. Just ask, and I will send you a copy or you can find most of them on the CaptivatingCappadocia page at flikr.com
I try to be transparent because we are in a relationship, in a community. This is how I would like to be treated so I treat you similarly. At the same time this page is an attempt to fulfill the requirements of the FTC as mentioned here.
I will not necessarily note the use of an affiliate link every time, although I will try to at least include a paragraph at the end of the post indicating that it contains such links.
