  • We advertise on behalf of several different affiliates, using affiliate tracking cookies which allows the businesses we help to promote see where a visitor has come from and if a sale is then made, we are credited as facilitating that sale and we earn a small % back from that sales – running a blog like this takes many hours of work and whilst we love what we do, we also have lots of blog associated costs to meet, including hosting, travel expenses, outdoor gear, the cost of development, email and so on. Affiliate tracking cookies allow us to recoup a small part of our everyday costs. Without this income stream we simply would not be able to continue running the Camping with Style blog.
