Transparency Statement

Some of the products and services I recommend pay me a small commission if you decide to purchase them. Making purchases based on my recommendations never costs you extra. In fact, it can sometimes save you money because I get access to certain discounts which aren’t available to the general public.

It’s a win-win: you save money and help me earn an additional salary from my writing. Thank you, in advance, for that. It’s an easy way for anyone to support my work, research, and expertise. Affiliate links will be shown like this → (affiliate link) to make them easy to identify.

In case you’re curious:

  1. I’ve purchased, owned, tested, and/or deeply researched every single thing I recommend.

  2. I’m never paid to sell software or hardware to you.

  3. I retain 100% editorial control over everything I write.

  4. The companies, products, or services that I recommend don’t know that I’m going to mention them.
