Media, Advertising & Privacy Policies

Media & Advertising Policy

  • At this time I do not accept paid advertising of any sort.
  • At some time in the future I may accept products for review or paid advertising. I will never accept money for links that pass page ranks (ie any links would be rel=”nofollow”) – Advertisers: please don’t bother to ask me.
  • If I do ever accept a product for review, the review will be published at my discretion only (in other words, if I don’t like the product I at all, I probably won’t write about it or link to it), and will be my unbiased opinion. And, I’ll tell you on the post that I received the product for free.

Affiliate Links and Endorsements

  • I do use occasional affiliate links, mostly to Amazon and Sometimes I just link to show you what a product might be (eg when I link to a milk thermometer on my how to make yoghurt page). If I am specifically recommending a product I will generally say “this is awesome”, like in a book review. In other words, if it’s an endorsement, you’ll know it.
  • I will NEVER endorse a product I haven’t used and loved.
  • All links from this site to Amazon automatically go to your local Amazon site and automatically add my affiliate ID.
  • If you buy something following my affiliate link, I will get a small commission (usually about 5%). Thank you. 🙂
