Some of our posts here at Skilled Blogging include affiliate links to some of our favorite and most trusted brands. We are affiliated with WP Engine, MyThemeShop and other brands that we know and trust.

When you click on one of these links and make a purchase, I receive a small commission. It doesn’t cost you anything extra (in fact, sometimes you’ll pay even less!) but it helps support the free information and services we provide here at and

Because we value our readers and the trust you place in us, we only provide affiliate links to brands we know and trust based on personal experience. For example, I host all my domains with WP Engine and I exclusively rely on MyThemeShop for my themes because I honestly believe they are the best businesses in their markets.

In some rare cases, we may also provide referrals to brands we trust based on glowing reviews from our close friends and others. This is true for BlueHost, a service that we are recommending because it is an affordable starter host and highly recommended by many WordPress bloggers.

In each case, we will make every effort to clarify whether this is a service we personally use or whether it’s one that we trust based on the recommendations of others.

I can promise you, however, that I won’t join just any affiliate program. I’m not going to try to sell you on a million useless services just to make a quick buck. I value the integrity of this site and I pledge to only endorse businesses that I trust and believe are beneficial to you and your website.

If you have questions, comments, suggestions or feedback related to our affiliate programs, please leave a comment here or email me at [email protected]

Thank you!
