I started the mummysgoneacycle blog in 2016 with no real idea as to why I was starting it. I knew nothing about blogging or creating a website but I was opinionated and passionate about sharing my love of cycling.
As the blog grows it takes up more and more time. In order for me to continue developing the website successfully I need to make enough money to fund this. I therefore have advertising banners on the website and am a member of a number of affiliate marketing schemes.
Affiliate marketing is one way in which websites make money. Retailers join an affiliate scheme and link with websites such as mummysgoneacycle. When a mummysgoneacycle post then includes a link to a product, if a reader clicks the link and the purchases the product, I receive a small commission. This does not affect the price you pay for that product.
Mummysgoneacycle is a member of Awin and Amazon Associates. These include retailers such as Chain Reaction Cycles, Ribble Cycles, Tweeks Cycles and Amazon.

The Mummysgoneacycle Philosophy
I do mention products in my blog posts. These are products which are relevant to the subject I am writing about and might be a book or a product. I do not include references to products or services just to make money. All references are because they are relevant. These references would have been made even if I was not a member of any affiliate marketing schemes.
Mummysgoneacycle will never link a product or service purely to make a sale, unless that product or service is offered directly by mummysgoneacycle.
