My goal here at The Homeschool Scientist is to equip and encourage homeschool parents by taking the fear out of and putting the fun into science education. Doing that takes a lot of hard work and effort on my part. Therefore, I pursue various streams of revenue to pay for this site, the services necessary to maintain it, and my time.
This site https://thehomeschoolscientist.com/ is run solely by myself, Marci Goodwin.
Paid Ads, Reviews, and Sponsored Posts
I accept paid advertisement, product reviews, and sponsored posts on The Homeschool Scientist, but only when they line up with the mission of the site and I feel they will be a good resource for my audience.
Advertising space is paid for and is clearly defined as such.
Sometimes, I partner with a business who has a product or service that I think will benefit my audience. They compensate me to write a post to be published at TheHomeschoolScientist.com for the purpose of introducing you to their product or service. All sponsored content will be clearly marked as such at the top of the post.
From time to time, I review products in posts. Some of them are products I purchased with my own money and wanted to share with you. Others were part of given to me free of charge for the purpose of reviewing. No matter where the products I review come from, the opinions shared in the review post are honest and all mine.
