The purpose of Life is Sweeter by Design is to help you recapture the joy in life through the little things. By sharing recipes, crafts, travel, and lifestyle articles, and more, we hope to help bring a little more joy to your life.
We have a number of costs associated with running a blog of this size — hosting, tech costs, design and development costs, and more. We accept paid advertising on my blog’s sidebar and use affiliate links in posts when they are available.
In addition, we accept opportunities to write posts, share special offers, run giveaways, or write a series of posts where we work directly with a company and they are underwriting the costs involved with our time and effort to share. However, you can rest assured that we only accept this type of opportunity when it is a post, deal, special offer, or series that will be helpful and valuable to our readers and is something that fits well within the parameters of this blog.
Our integrity is much more important than making a quick buck, so we always seek to have your best interests in mind first and foremost. If it doesn’t benefit you, we won’t post it — no matter how much someone is willing to pay us to do so.
Our readers are always our first priority. We want you to be able to trust wholeheartedly that the content you find on Life Is Sweeter by Design is not influenced by money. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are solely ours and I do my best to always be honest and forthright in what we share.
If you ever have questions or concerns, please drop me an email. I can’t please everyone, but I want to live with integrity so I always welcome your input and constructive criticism.
