The site that I am running is a blog which differs from a website.  A blog has ever-changing content and can include conversations and comments as compared with a website.  The opinions expressed in my blogs are mine and do not reflect the opinions of any organizations I am affiliated with. The information I provided on my blog is accurate and to the best of my knowledge, however, there could be omissions, mistakes or errors. The information presented on my blog is for informational purposes only and shouldn’t be relied on or seen as any type of advice. I am not a professional in this matter, therefore, my topic shouldn’t be seen as professional advice. I reserve the right to change how I manage my blog and its content may change at any time.

What are affiliate links?

Purchases are made on external affiliate company websites: When a reader clicks on an affiliate link located on to purchase an item, the reader buys the item from the seller directly (not from Amazon and/or other affiliate link companies pay, a small commission or other compensation for promoting their website or products through their affiliate program. 

Prices are exactly the same for you if your purchase is through an affiliate link or a non-affiliate link. You will not pay more by clicking through the link. 

What about sponsored content?

I do not write sponsored posts. I want to bring you real, unbiased information. However, if a post is sponsored by a company and it is a paid sponsorship, I will disclose this clearly in the beginning of the post.
