Part of what you’ll learn (or already have learned) about me is that my integrity and reputation are so important to me that I guard it and protect it as if it were a treasure. Because it is. So I want to be totally up front with you and let you know that, yes, I may be making money off this blog.
That means that I may accept relevant advertising, links on my site may be affiliate links (which means I get paid if you click on the link and ultimately make a purchase on the target site – at no cost to you), and I may receive free products or payments for reviewing products and writing about them. However, I do promise you that I will personally use/try any product or service I refer to, so you’re getting honest and personal opinions.
I disclose this to you because I want to – and because the FTC requires me to. But honestly, I would do it even if the FTC didn’t make me. But just to make sure I’m in compliance with disclosure policies, here is some legal-eze that reinforces my commitment to disclose this information to you:
