The Fine Print

Revisions, Edits, and Deletions
People start blogs for any number of reasons. I feel that the writing process allows me to get a better handle on concepts and ideas. Publishing my writing forces me to take the endeavor seriously and opens up the possibility that someone out there might stop by and provide additional insight into a topic that I’m interested in.
That being said, every single article on this web page is a work-in-progress and I reserve the right to update, edit, rewrite, or delete anything at any time. Nothing I’ve written represents my final thoughts on the topic and I welcome feedback regardless of how long ago the article was originally written.
Lastly, this site is a private endeavor and does not reflect the opinion of my employer, any of my previous employers, or anyone who may employ me in the future (particularly my first employer, The Tree Barn—a seasonal Christmas tree operation in my hometown of Hoboken, NJ).
This site is not a commercial venture. That being said, I may use an Amazon Affiliates link or comparable commission-based system if and when it is non-intrusive to the reader (e.g. you). I normally don’t include affiliate links because I usually can’t be bothered to brew one up. Besides, I have yet to make a penny from Amazon.
My general guidelines are as follows:
- If I choose to use an affiliate link, it shouldn’t cost you a dime.
- If I’m doing it right, you shouldn’t notice that it’s happening at all.
- I will never write an article just to promote a product. If I’m genuinely interested in writing about something and it just so happens that I can include a link that meets the above criteria, then so be it. But, I will never go out of my way to write an article just to hawk you on a book or some other product.
If you’re in anyway uncomfortable with this, you’re more than welcome to look the book or whatever yourself and circumvent the whole affiliate process. I just wanted to let you know that no one—around here at least—is intentionally doing anything sneaky behind your back. Should you choose to click on an affiliate link, I appreciate your patronage.
