The Federal Trade Commission {FTC} has published guidelines regarding endorsements and testimonials that are intended to protect the public from misleading or errant advertising.  Since this site makes use of advertising and endorsements in order to make money, we are required by these guidelines to provide a disclosure policy on the sources of that income.

  • We use third party advertisers (such as Google Adsense) on our site that pay us if you click on one of their ads.
  • We may provide links to products or services that we have used in creating our posts.  Some of these product links are affiliate links and pay us a commission if you click on the link and buy the product (at no additional cost to you).
  • We are a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to and affiliated sites.
  • We will only provide links to products, services or other businesses that we have used and liked (and think might be helpful for you, the reader, as well).
  • We will attempt to let you know which of the products are affiliate links, but cannot guarantee that every affiliated product and service is individually tagged as such.
  • Our opinions cannot be “bought”.  We will always tell you our honest views on products and services regardless of income opportunities.
  • We do not accept sponsored products (ie. free products or payments from companies to use their products in projects), so any brand endorsements we give are because we truly use and believe in the product
