    Affiliate Links

    As I’m sure you can appreciate, it takes an enormous amount of time to research, create and regularly update the hundreds of posts on this site. makes use of various affiliate programs throughout.

    No editorial decisions are ever swayed by the use of affiliate links and it never adds to the cost of a product or service. Some brands and services even offer my readers exclusive discounts.

    Sponsored Content

    I get asked all the time to write about specific brands and products. Very occasionally, I agree to do so if I think the product would be of genuine interest to myself or my readers.

    In these instances I ask the company to cover the cost of the time it takes to research, write and update the content. This is what a sponsored post means on my blog.

    I retain complete editorial control, I write what I like and I say what I want. That’s the deal.

    To provide some context, there are well over 700 posts on this site (and counting) and so far five of them have been sponsored.

    If you have any questions, do drop me a note in the form above.

    Guest Posts

    Sorry marketing folks, I don’t at this time host guest posts on the blog.
