Chris Lema’s 5 Tips on Starting a Blog

  1. Put affiliate links in your blog posts. They are a proven way to monetize your blog.
  2. Write about products and services that you have used and tested thoroughly, and only include affiliate links for the ones that you can recommend wholeheartedly.
  3. Include a disclaimer at the bottom of a post with affiliate links.
  4. Add a “Disclosures” page to your website that outlines your treatment of product recommendations and affiliate links.
  5. Your blog is your digital house. You set the rules. You have the right to comments that don’t add to the conversation, and you can ignore the trolls and haters without justifying yourself or responding to them.
