Advertising Policy

I wish to be honest and upfront with my readers about my advertising policy. I want you to know that I will discuss a variety of products and services on my website, and when possible, I will use affiliate links. If you click on an affiliate link and proceed to purchase that product or service, I will be paid a small commission; however your cost will be the same.

So naturally you may be wondering if I am selling a product or service just to make money or am I recommending it because I feel it is in the best interest of my readers. My goal for this website is to help people get the best crochet education and products related to crochet, so therefore I promise not to recommend a product unless:

  1. I have thoroughly researched it.
  2. I have personally used it.
  3. I feel it adds value to your crochet experience. 

I love teaching crochet and because of this I give a lot of valuable information away for free on my website. However, please understand that this is also a job for me, and affiliate links are one of the ways I get paid for my work. The commissions I receive from your purchases through advertisements on my website helps keep Crochet Guru going.  So if you find the information on Crochet Guru to be useful, I would appreciate your support by using the affiliate links on this site rather than going directly to the source. Thanks in advance!
