While working on the blog sometimes people want me to try out a new product and I may write about it. If it’s not something I like, it won’t be shared. But, that being said…not every post will make major disclaimers for a particular product. The official FTC disclosure states that I may have received free goods, free meals, payment, links to pages or some just plain old loving for what is written on these pages.
Sometimes I’ll post things that I just plain like and want to share with the world our favorite gadget or food product that has miraculously changed my life!
