This blog is a personal blog written and edited by myself, Brett Bumeter. For questions about this blog, please contact brettbum through yahoo email.
This blog has sometimes accepted and sometimes accepts forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions or other forms of compensation. This blog will not accept any form of advertising, sponsorship, paid insertion or other form of compensation that I find may cause undo physical harm on other people. I am not all seeing nor all knowing and so this will be a goal of this blog to avoid those items to the best of my ability. I will gladly accept comments or emails that might illuminate to myself and more importantly to my readers any potential for harm a sponsored product mentioned on this blog might be capable of creating..
The compensation received may influence the advertising content, topics or posts made in this blog. That content, advertising space or post may not always be identified as paid or sponsored content.
The owner(s) of this blog is compensated to provide opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics. Even though the owner(s) of this blog receives compensation for our posts or advertisements, we always give our honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences on those topics or products. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely the bloggers’ own. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.
In order to continue offering our content, perspectives, insights, etc, etc, and yada yada yada for the total monthly subscription price of $0.00, we are sometimes paid by advertisers for banner ads on our site, and by some retailers if you buy something as a result of clicking through our site via advertisements from companies such as Google, Skimlinks, Azoogle, and many others. We commit that this does not influence our editorial integrity or the quality of our content. In fact the large majority of retailers and companies with advertisements are served up with out our direct review or approval. It is this blind fashion that allows us to write merrily away (note ‘us’ is really mostly just me, Brett aka Harry unless you are reading an article from a guest author which hasn’t happend very often because I’m lazy and forget to ask people most of the time). We believe that writing honest fair content will mean you can choose to trust us more, or as much as you like, and return as often as you like. We do thank you for reading our content and would like it if you return, nothing pleases us more than to provide some insights, possibly levity and occasionally a ‘deep’ thought. Now, although we do not choose all of the ads nor advertisers that are served up here, we do work to block ads that we find unacceptable. If you see something that you think is not acceptable, please write us a guest article about it and we will consider your request and if we block that ad, we will publish your guest article along with our thoughts on why we agreed to block any given advertiser. Note the various technologies at play here do not always allow us to block all ads that are served up, nor sometimes block ads from companies that work through Google and vary their company name or link etc, etc. Google does a very good job of this, but google is far from perfect. Please do use your own best judgement at ALL times when you are investigating anything, any product, any site, any ad, any purchase etc. We can not protect you from the world, that is not our role nor responsibility etc, etc, yada yada yada, but as we can we will be happy to voice our concerns and warnings, and share yours as well if it will help us or our readers. We really just want to communicate useful things that can include, watch out for so and so they screwed us over, or don’t buy so and so if you live on the equator as their product doesn’t hold up well to heat and humidity but if you are a polar bear it works fine.
