Commerical blogging

  • Before I wad into Vivaldi's blogging system, I wanted to first know if it was open to affiliate links, adsense, ads, etc or is more like, just for journaling, etc.

    @nickravo Hi, welcome to vivaldi!

    If you check out the terms of use at

    You can see affiliate links are allowed, but you must clearly mark them as affiliate links.

    If a post contains affiliate links, you must clearly disclose this. For instance, with language such as: “This post includes affiliate links; I may receive compensation if you purchase products or services from the different links provided in this article.

    The blog platform doesn't currently support serving advertisements, and is mostly just for community members to share their blogs. Please don't make blog posts which are individual ads as this will be treated as spam.

  • My wife is looking for a place to blog and promote her own on-line business. She wants to blog about the products she sells, writing reviews about them and such. Would Vivaldi allow her to use their blogging services to help promote her own on-line business? She likes searching the Vivaldi community and reading about all the different things people blogging about. She just doesn't want to do anything against Vivaldi's rules.

    @dbouley thanks for asking. Not sure if is the most appropriate place for that. I imagine she'll want to have data about how well her blog is performing and at this stage we can't offer that. Also depending on the online business she might want to setup a webshop which we don't support. But if she wants to share her adventures as an entrepreneur, she's more than welcome to.

    In any case, tell her to check our terms of use that way she'll see if we're a good match for her needs or not.

    I hope this helps, otherwise she's more than welcome to reach out to us via 🙂

  • @gaelle Thank you for taking time to answer my question. 🙂 We both really enjoy browsing through all of the stories people blog about, here on I personally enjoy sharing my thoughts on my vivaldi blog and recommended using it to my wife. We just didn't want to do anything against the terms of use.

    After reading through the terms of use, I think that if she follows the rule regarding affiliate links, she'll be okay in using to blog.
