Disclosure of Affiliate Links,  Sponsorships, and Other Benefits


Big Purple Marble is a blog about learning and growing, expanding our knowledge and exploring our world – and playing at being alive.

But the reality of it is that Big Purple Marble will not continue to exist unless it creates income. And the FTC requires bloggers to disclose anything related to affiliates, sponsorships, interests or biases. If any individual or company offers support of any kind to Big Purple Marble, we must disclose it.

On every page or post, you might notice advertising or affiliate links that, when clicked, may add a few cents to our budget. If a post mentions a product, we may have benefited in some way by doing so. You’ve heard of the man who sold advertising space on his forehead? well – we won’t go that far. But we do have space in our blogsite for advertising that would relate to our key topics: Play. Explore. Expand.


We hope you understand this FTC regulations, and still enjoy our blog site. Thank you!
