This blog abides by word of mouth marketing standards. I believe in honesty of relationship, opinion and identity. The compensation received may influence the advertising content, topics or posts made in this blog. That content, advertising space or post will be clearly identified as paid or sponsored content.
The owner of this blog is compensated to provide opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics. Even though the owner of this blog receives compensation for posts or advertisements, I always give my honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences on those topics or products. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely my own.

In short, I try to be ethical and have full disclosure. If you see a link, please assume that I am an affiliate link and that I will be paid a small commission for posting it. There is never any cost to you because I am an affiliate. This is a win/win for both of us. You know I will bring you the best deals even from the affiliates. I generally never post about full price items unless it is unique and only available without a price reduction.
We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our Web site.

While I am at disclosing, I am NOT now, nor have I ever been, an employee of any of the stores I blog about with the exception of Sears. I do not know any employees on a personal basis, have no insider connections or information. I don’t even know a vendor who works inside any of the stores I may blog about. I do not call them or write them unless I personally have a specific question about my personal dealings with them. I do not contact them on behalf of my readers. I do not represent any store or affiliate site and I cannot represent you.
I DO ALL OF MY OWN RESEARCH OR IT IS CONTRIBUTED BY OTHER BLOGGERS OR READERS.
