I monetise Rasp And Rivet in various ways…
You’ll notice advertisement banners on Rasp And Rivet (if you’re not blocking them). These hardly cover any costs, but every cent helps.
Because it takes hours, days, weeks to write an article, I charge a fee for writing reviews. The fee covers the time I spend dissecting products.

Most Rasp And Rivet articles contain affiliate links, including links from the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising programme designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com, amazon.co.uk, amazon.ca, endless.com, smallparts.com, myhabit.com, and other websites affiliated with Amazon Service LLC Associates Program.
If you click on an affiliate link, it uses tracking code that enables me to earn a small commission on the product you buy through Amazon.
Other sites I use for affiliate links include:
You don’t pay more
Buying through an affiliate link doesn’t push up the price. you pay the same as you would have, had you not used my link. I get a cut of the original price; I don’t add to the original price.
I use contextual links on Rasp And Rivet. Contextual link services such as Viglink injects links into my content automatically. This allows me to concentrate on creating content, while they offer me another stream of income.
Why try to make money from a blog? After all, it’s a bunch of words and pictures. These things are easy to whack together!
Some of them are.
But not this one.
My reviews are thousands of words long.
But my articles aren’t jumbled concoctions of incomprehensible jargon.
I spend an enormous amount of time crafting reviews for my audience. My goal is to inform and educate.
It takes days, sometimes weeks, to craft these pieces. I need to put food on the table with this tool, or else my family and I starve.
I send out a newsletter on Monday mornings. It’s a summary of articles written the previous week.
You’ll only appreciate the newsletter if you prefer truth over marketing hype.
