I write and maintain this personal blog, with occasional unpaid guest posts from other individuals. For questions about this blog, e-mail me.
This blog accepts sponsorships and paid advertising. I am compensated for some content on this blog. In the case of sponsored posts, i.e. posts where a company has sent me a product to review, I will disclose that relationship in the post. In these cases, I do my best to provide an honest and accurate review, even if it is unfavorable. In the case of paid advertising, I will disclose if I have been paid to advertise any products or services that I do not regularly use. In the case of sponsored posts and paid advertising, I am very picky about what products and services I will feature, and do my best to feature products that are safe, natural, and by companies I, to the best of my knowledge, believe to operate ethically.
In other cases, I review products or services I use regularly, without any paid incentive directly from the company. However, I may link to those products and services via affiliate links. When a person clicks on an affiliate link, their activity on the linked site is tracked by cookies. I am compensated based on clicks and/or purchases, usually receiving a small commission on any purchases made on the site within a certain range of time after a person clicks on my link. In these cases, I share products and services I use and believe in. I believe strongly in word of mouth marketing and hope others will benefit from my process of trial and error to find great products.
I am a participant in the Amazon Affiliate program, and any links to Amazon are typically linked via this affiliate program. I also use Viglink, which automatically monetizes most other links on my blog. I do not disclose these links in every post, so be aware that some links may be part of these affiliate programs and may result in your activity on certain websites to be tracked by cookies.
