      Hi Karen! Thanks for stopping by to read. As for affiliate programs, it would depend on the WP package you have (whether you own the domain or not). If in doubt, WP has a great help forum. The last time I asked a question there, I received an answer in ten minutes!

    • CharronsChatter profile image

      Karen Robiscoe 4 years ago from California

      Is this type of thing--marketing affiliate programs--allowed through our blogging platform, WP? 'Cause the language about its permissibility looks a little ambiguous (I thought) when I surfed it through WP Help. Because you know, hey...like money for chocolate..:)
