I have one rule that I follow (and expect anyone reading and using this blog to follow as well):
Be excellent to each other.
- I write this blog with honesty, transparency and integrity,
- I use my own name, and
- I do not hide anything
Cool? For any questions, feel free to contact me.
If a product or service has an affiliate program, I usually use an affiliate link when linking to that product or service. If you click the affiliate links and buy something from the sites that I link to, I make an affiliate commission on the sale.
- I make money through blogging and Internet marketing
- I do not give positive endorsements unless I REALLY think that way
- I keep it real and try to help you by telling about products and services I am using myself
With this site, I am a participant in many affiliate programs, including the Amazon.com & Amazon Europe S.à.r.l. Associates Programmes. These affiliate programs provide me a means to earn some coffee money for linking to various products and services.
I earn commissions from products or services I review or mention in blog posts. I earn money by using affiliate links to other sites that pay a referral commission. This is one of the ways that I make a living from blogging.
I review and link to products that I think are useful to you (as most of them I am using myself too). My reviews are honest and I do not endorse anything just because I might receive commission as an affiliate sale or anything like that. If I say I like and recommend something, I mean it (and if something lacks the value, I tell you that too).

Additional Disclosure Thing
I write on this blog with good intensions. My intention is to do no harm, to not injure others, defame, or libel, but to help others.
Me or my blog is not to be prosecuted for bad grammar and punctuation, I make errors, mistakes and that just makes me human. Also, I am not responsible for translation or interpretation of the content, you know, something I write means something totally different on another language. I mean, that'll just be funny, right?
This is a blog and it is always in transition. Content, sources, information and links change over time and it is possible that content on this blog "gets old" or something I have linked before disappears or changes to something different. What is in the end of link is somewhat out of my control (it's not my fault if someone sold their domain to be law-breaking cultsite or something for big bucks, good for them), but at the time the link is created, I link to a sources I believe to be trustworthy, helpful or interesting.
The content I write to this blog is my opinion, not intended to malign any religion, ethnic group, club, organization, company, or individual, or anyone or thing. We're together on this, sharing the love through the blogosphere, there's no reason to get angry!
These are my personal views, not any views of any organization I'm a part of or have been part of, worked or have worked for. The content on this site does not represent opinions of any past or present employer, volunteer group, membership organization, or other agencies I have been a part of at some time during my life.
I am not responsible, nor to be held liable, for what others say in the blog comments, nor the laws which they may break in any country through their comments' content, implication, and intent. I welcome critical comments and good debate, but this blog has zero spam policy. Thus, the comments are moderated according to my comment policy and comments that do now follow the simple rules of being excellent to each other, will be deleted.
I have no control over the other sources linking to this blog. I love links and if you like this site, I welcome your links back to my blog, that is your priviledge as a web user. When there is a link to this blog from elsewhere, I am not responsible for the source linking back to me.

If the laws in your country, or the country you are currently in, are against something that is in this blog, get out of these pages! But seriously, there are so many countries (and states!) with weird laws that could be help against you, and I cannot know about them, so you as a reader are responsible for that. In other words, I am not responsible for defamatory statements bound to government, religious, or other laws from the reader's country of origin or residence.
