This blog earns income through affiliate relationships with some of the companies mentioned within. That means some of the images and text links you click on pay me money. I do not accept any editorial control from any of these affiliate partners. I quit my job in corporate America partly to have freedom over what I say, write, and think in every way. To accept money to write something nice about a company would ruin my credibility with you as a reader and render my recommendations suspect.
I am extremely frugal (some would say cheap?). I would never link to something making you less wealthy that I did not think represented tremendous value or that I use myself.
I refuse to accept any paid content or endorsement articles. If I really like a company like Republic Wireless (for phone service) or Bluehost (for starting/ hosting a blog), I will use their affiliate programs to enable me to keep writing and delivering free content to you.
