Our goal on AmandaJene.com and in our monthly newsletters is to share artwork, news, and updates about what’s going on with Amanda Jene Illustrations!

The information you see on the website, social media channels, and in the newsletters, is free to readers and subscribers. This of course takes a lot of valuable time and resources to keep up with. In order to provide that time and those resources, we have to earn enough money to keep things running!
One of the ways we earn income to keep the blog going, besides selling product, is by partnering with brands, blogs, and businesses we love. We feel blessed to be able to work with and support only companies and products we personally love, use, and can genuinely recommend.
Before a post, page, or email that may contain affiliate links, is a sentence disclosure that will tell you if some of the links in that section are from affiliates.
An affiliate link is basically a link that takes you to whatever it is we’re promoting, and if you click it and end up making a purchase, then Amanda Jene Illustrations may get a cut. I say “may” because many affiliate programs only offer commission on certain things.
Think of these cuts like marketing fees. We feature or promote a product or service, and the company makes sales from it. They, in turn, may give us a fraction of that sale. At no additional cost to you, of course!
Sponsored posts are another way for us to make money to run the website. When a post is “sponsored” it means we were paid or given product in exchange for honest feedback about the product or service the article is about.
These posts will also have a sentence disclosure at the top, so that you know something was exchanged. While this won’t change our feedback about the product or service, we do want you to be fully aware.
Other than the occasional affiliate link or sponsored post, the only other way we make money to run this website is by selling products. We sell digital items and physical prints of artwork in the shop. We also sell artwork on merchandise through RedBubble.com.
At AmandaJene.com, everyone is welcome! It’s very important to us to keep this website as friendly, understanding, and welcoming as possible. There is no room for hate speech here! So please be kind and respectful when commenting.
Those that abuse the system will be banned from the site, as well as social media accounts.
