This blog abides by word of mouth marketing standards. I believe in honesty of relationship, opinion and identity. Advertising space or affiliate links will be clearly identified.

The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely my own. If I claim or appear to be experts on a certain topic or product or service area, I will only endorse products or services that I believe, based on my expertise, are worthy of such endorsement.

Receipt of a product does not constitute a contract for a published review of the product. Receipt of a product does not guarantee a favorable review. Reviews are done based on honest assessments of the products and content is not preapproved by PR representatives or brands.
