The content on this site is all original, except when otherwise mentioned. Books by other authors are cited as such. All written content on the site is written by me unless overtly stated--I do have a guest post or two lined up from time to time, and I state when I am not the originator of the content.

The website was designed using the Thrive Theme integrated with Word Press and hosted by Host Gator.

Photographs are all taken by me unless otherwise stated. The photo essays that appear on this site are all photos taken by me and my family (if I am in the photo).

The orange background image of the leaves is an open source photograph by artist and photographer Ryan McGuire. I'm a big fan of his stuff. You can check out his open source photography website here.

Amazon Associates Program

Additionally, you may have seen the Amazon Disclosure within the footer of the site. This site participates in the Amazon Associates Program and adds and links appear on the pages of this site that redirect to Amazon.com. There are a variety of reasons for this and I would like to be transparent.

First, monetizing this website helps sustain it. Second, As For Class uses the Amazon affiliate, CreateSpace, in order to publish physical copies of the books. I have had a very good relationship with Amazon and a fulfilling relationship with the company. Because of this, As For Class fully supports Amazon, as Amazon has fully supported As For Class.

I also personally believe in the services that Amazon provides and I already try to convince all of my friends and family to use Amazon Prime, so I may as well continue that role in a more official capacity. There are ads here in the form of the links that I use to link to products. I like the freedom of being able to choose how I use the links, as I get to avoid the overt advertisements all over the place--which makes the site look much cleaner. I receive a small payment for every click, and those payments go toward more content and future creative endeavors for As For Class.
