Privacy Policy and Disclosure of Earnings Statement

The FCC requires bloggers to let readers know that their blog makes money. My disclosure policy is short, sweet, and boring.

I love to write, but I also like money. Blogging takes time and I have no qualms about wanting to profit from it. If you ever click on something on this blog and it takes you to a location where you can by something, I am 99.9% sure that I will get a commission from it.

I do not write paid reviews and I do not endorse anything I don’t use. If you find the idea of a blogger receiving commissions for affiliate sales, please feel free to read another blog.

Every time I write a post, there is usually a way for me to profit from it.

Please ask me if you have any questions about any of this. I’ve got nothing to hide.
