Insaitama.com is a not for profit blog, but we use Google Adsense and Amazon Affiliate Links to contribute to the cost of self-hosting a website.

Insaitama.com is currently (May 2020) a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.co.jp. The site rejoined in May 2020 after a year off from the program. (Member from June 2017 to May 2019. Rejoined May 13th 2020).
If you click through an Amazon Affiliate ad on this website, which are always clearly marked as being an Amazon Associates ad, and purchase something I may receive a yenny or two. If you click through and don’t purchase anything, as far as I am aware, I don’t receive anything. As you will notice on the site I rarely insert Amazon Affiliate links and of the handful of Amazon Associate adverts inserted to date I have “earned” 929 yen in two years!
Like the Google adverts on this site, anything that is “earned” from an advert is put back into the blog (self hosting costs, blog improvements etc) and as such Saitama With Kids is still a not for profit site.
