Here at CF, we take honesty and integrity very seriously. Reader trust is everything to us, and we'd never try to deceive our readers by endorsing products we wouldn't spend our own money on, publishing paid advertisements disguised as normal blog posts, or engaging in any other deceptive practices to make a buck.
That said, the website needs money to keep running (hosting and server costs can get pretty expensive), so, as you can see, we do run ads on this blog. We also participate in affiliate programs. This means that we sometimes get paid a commission if you purchase a product through a link you clicked on CF.
We do run "Sponsored Posts" from time to time, where an advertiser has paid for a blog post. These posts will always be clearly marked as such, and even in the case of sponsored posts, the opinions are always 100% our own.
In terms of free stuff, from time to time, companies will send us free samples of products to review on the site. Whenever a company has sent us something for free and we write about it, we always tell you we got the product for free in that blog post. Also, we never write reviews of free products we don't like. Period. A company could send us all the free stuff in the world, and we still wouldn't write about them if we didn't think they were worthy of CF readers.
So that's what's up. If you have any questions about any of this, use the contact form to get in touch and we'll be happy to answer them!
