The Frugal Homeschooling Mom is a personal blog written and edited by me, Deana, a simple stay-at-home mom, probably very similar to you, the reader – I’m just a normal person, really.  I view blogging as a fun and interesting past-time during my children’s afternoon quiet-time and nap-time, and when they’ve gone to bed in the evenings.  It has turned into an income-producing endeavor and an alternative to working at a job outside the home.

Really, the income is just an extra blessing – I enjoy blogging and would do it whether or not I made any money with it.  It’s really fun to write, to have a healthy outlet for my thoughts and likes, and make new friends that enjoy hearing the sometimes unusual and abnormal things I have to say!

I always strive to blog with integrity, and here I will disclose my relationship with companies and products I may endorse.  Some posts may contain “affiliate links.”  That basically means that when you visit those links, I get rewarded in some way, usually monetarily.  Thank you so much for allowing me to refer you!  Your support by clicking on links within my blog gives me a little bit of encouragement for the hours I spend writing.  And don’t worry, the prices of the products you purchase when you click those links are not effected at all.

Even though I receive compensation for some posts and advertisements, I always give my honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences on those topics or products.  I refuse advertisement offers that do not coincide with the blog’s purpose or that I do not believe are worthy for my readership.  I would never recommend anything on my blog that I wouldn’t recommend to my own close friends and family.  In fact, the majority of websites, reviews, posts, and other things on my blog are NOT sponsored in any way by the companies I choose to talk about; I simply like them and want to share them with you.
