As a website owner, I’m required by law to comply with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
On a more personal note, I believe that being transparent with my audience is the right thing to do. That’s why I’m creating this disclosure page to let you know that I do make money from this website. Well I can’t really say, I do make money, it is more like, I try to recover some of the costs associated with keeping this site alive.
If you’re using this website, then you should know:
- I get direct benefit from every post and page I put on this website. Whether that is monetary or simple joy of helping others, I’m benefiting from it.
- If you see an external link to a national/international vendor or Amazon, then it is an affiliate link. What that means is if you click on that link and purchase a product, then at no-additional cost to you, I will receive a small referral commission. All links to my local Virginia vendors are non commissioned endorsements.
- I make a lot of friends thanks to social media and business travel.
- I do wish I got a lot of freebies to test and review. If vendors send me freebies in exchange for a review I will let you know. However, that doesn’t mean that they get a positive review. If I don’t like the product, then I will be honest. That’s just the way I am, honest to a fault.
It’s important that I emphasize that the words on this website are mine and are not influenced by any sort of compensation. I only recommend products or services that I use personally and/or believe will add value to my readers.
If you have any questions regarding the above, then please do not hesitate to contact me by using the contact page.
