As part of our journey, we plan to spend time on our website developing it, updating it and adding good quality content to it — time that we could otherwise use to work on other paid work. As we really enjoy building the Minimalist Journeys website and providing information for this community, we would like to continue spending a lot of time here.

That’s why we have advertisements (which makes us money when you look at them or click on them) and affiliate links (which, at no extra cost to you, makes us money when you purchase things through the said links). In the future, we may even put up sponsored content (which will make us money when you read it).

So in accordance with various guidelines, we disclose that we may be compensated if consumers choose to utilise links located throughout the content on this site. Additionally, some posts might be sponsored to support this blog. Please do the appropriate research before participating in any third party offers. All opinions are ours.

That said, we value the Minimalist Journeys brand above any short-term compensation we can get. We are making a long-term investment in this website and will not publish anything that compromises our integrity. In other words, we will not lie to you to earn a few bucks.

If you prefer the legalese version, here it is:
