Finances (Revenue) Disclosure Policy

This blog is my hobby—I don’t make money from it.

This blog is personally written, edited, and published solely by me. I do not, nor will not, accept any form of cash or monetary payment, advertising, sponsorship, affiliations (even affiliated links), paid topic insertions, or any other forms of compensation. I will NOT accept nor keep free products, services, travel arrangements, event tickets, and other forms of compensation or reimburstment from companies, organizations, government entities, non-profits, private citizens, or otherwise.

Because I refuse to make income from my blog and online prescence, there is no external or other third-party influence over content, topics, posts, or forum content I create. My opinions are strictly my own, and do not reflect the ideas, ideologies, creeds, demographics or points of view of anything I’m a member of—at times my own personal opinion may even be at odds with what I do identify or align with. They may grow, evolve, or change over time. At the same time, I more than likely will be influenced by my background, spirituality, politics, transition, and/or experience.

I am not compensated to provide my opinion on products, services, websites, politics, controversies, etc. Any products, services, etc. mentioned or reviewed is because I personally purchased, used, and like—or hate—them; they are not endorsements.

Anything I link to are not affiliation links—it’s because I think they’re useful, and they link directly.

Any products or services I do mention that I use, license, or own is bought and paid for with my own, personal funds.

If you see any ads, run a malware scanner, because I do not run this blog to make money—it’s a goddamn hobby. I do not show ads on my blog.

You run your own risks using anything I recommend.

I make no claim to be knowledgeable on any topic, product, service, or anything else, and may be prone to errors, if not the absence of some key information—info and opinions I provide are “as is”, with no guarantee of completeness, accuracy, timeliness or of the results obtained from the use of this information, and without warranty of any kind, expressed or implied.

I am not in any way, shape, or form responsible for your behaviors, responses, or opinions. I am not liable to you or anyone else for any decision you make, any action you take in reliance on the information here; nor for any consequential, special or similar damages you cause, even when I advise of the possibility of such damages. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation should have you verify with the manufacturer or provider yourself.

I blog for fun, as it was originally meant to be. I am not a ”content creator” who expects viewers, patrons, ads, affiliates, and sponsorships to pay for my income for anything I do. I work like everyone else, and pay for everything myself.

I will try to link to this as best I can if I think I need to.
