This site is a passion project for me. I would like to work on it full-time but to do so entails figuring out some way to make money on it. I want to do that in a way that doesn't annoy the reader (so ads are out) and doesn't present a conflict of interest (so no sponsorship or paid reviews.)


To that end, I use affiliate links when mentioning products I recommend. If you don't think my research or recommendations are valuable, you are not obliged in any way to purchase them via those links, or at all. I use Amazon affiliate links because those are the only ones I know about (newbie alert.) As such, I'm required to include the following disclosure:

I am "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 Amazon.com and affiliated sites." Any compensation received via Amazon affiliate links will never influence the content, topics or posts made in this site. The views and opinions expressed on this site are purely those of the site owner.


If I claim or appear to be an expert on a certain topic or product or service area, I will only endorse products or services that I believe, based on my expertise, are worthy of such endorsement. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer or provider.

If I ever make above minimum wage on this, I'll let you guys know...

Thanks for enduring the fine print!
