We love and appreciate our readers and hold ourselves to the highest standards of transparency & integrity. Our goal is primarily to provide helpful content and resources for our readers, and secondarily generating a small profit to compensate us for our research & time.

In the spirit of transparency as well as following FTC guidelines, we wanted to disclose the following to our readers:

  • The content of our blog is a source of income for us and therefore may be used to promote products, services, or other businesses.
  • We will only choose to promote products/services/businesses that we have used, loved and highly recommend.
  • If products are provided to us free of charge for our review, we will let you know. This does not assure a positive review of the product in any way.
  • Your trust of us is incredibly important. We will always give our honest opinion about a product or service whether or not we are partnering with the company and/or receiving payment to do so.
  • We will attempt to mention our affiliate relationship with every product, service and business that we share on this blog.
