A Quick Note Or Why I'm Truncating My Rss Feed

If you subscribe to this blog through rss or email starting this week you're going to see some changes. I know this is how a lot of you prefer to read this blog so I wanted to give you a heads up and explain why from now on certain posts will be truncated meaning you will only see the first photo and paragraph of each post with a link to the full post on the blog.

As you know whenever I share a tutorial I include links to craft supplies I've loved and used so you can easily recreate the project using the same materials and products. To do this I use Amazon affiliate links, this means that if you click and purchase on a product I receive a small commission. I recently discovered it is against Amazon's Terms of Service to include these links in email or rss feed. As these affiliate links are what help support this blog and enable me to make more craft projects to share with you, all future posts containing Amazon affiliate links will only be available in full on the blog.

Truncating my blog feed wasn't something I wanted to do as I know a lot of people, including myself can find it really annoying to have to click over to a site after already taking the time to subscribe. Hopefully only truncating the posts containing the Amazon affiliate is a good compromise.

Thank you so much for reading. I really do appreciate each and every one of you who has taken the time to read, share, subscribe and support this blog. It means a lot.

P.S. If you're in the same boat want to know more information about Amazon's Terms of Services and how to comply with them I recommend reading this post.
