FTC Statement

The FTC requires blogs to disclose whenever there could be hidden interests or unspoken biases related to recommendations.

Per the FTC rules, if we interview someone and they grab the bill for lunch, we would need to disclose this. Ditto if we use an Amazon link that gets us 8 cents instead of an Amazon link that gets us 0 cents. If someone gives us a comfy t-shirt with a logo and we wear it in a photo, same deal. Disclaimers all over the place.

This would be tedious for us and even more tedious for readers. But rules is rules.

To cover our ass and preserve your reading experience, please assume that, for every link and product we use, the following all hold true:

Please feel free to use the text and images on this page with proper attribution. There is no reason why each blog should have to reinvent the wheel.
