To comply with the FTC ruling relating to bloggers getting paid to write and to be as transparent to my readers as possible, I offer the following disclosure policy.

If you’re reading my blog, you should assume the following:

  • While I am sharing basic research I’m interested in exploring, my ultimate goal is to make money by leveraging some of the ideas discussed herein.  Every post I make has the potential to make money either from the ideas contained in the post or the links contained in the post.
  • Some products I write about on this blog, I get for free to evaluate. While I appreciate freebies that does NOT guarantee a positive review.  Also, if I paid for an item, that doesn’t mean the review won’t be positive.  My goal is to exactly relate my experience with products or services.
  • Disclosure of Material Connection: Some of the links in the post on my site are “affiliate links.” This means if you click on the link and purchase the item, I will receive an affiliate commission. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will add value to my readers. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials.
  • Unless otherwise stated in writing, if you email me, all of the information in your email is mine to do with as I please.  Unless otherwise stated in writing, if you comment on a post here, all of the information in the comment is mine to do with as I please.

Please keep in mind that my goal is to share my research with individuals with similar interests.  Along the way, if I can pay a few of my operational expenses by recommending quality products to my readers I consider that a fair trade.

My commitment to the work I’m doing and the readers that are sharing it will always guide my decisions about marketing and affiliate marketing.

Thanks for reading,
