Affiliate and Retailer Links: We do provide affiliated product links, however, we are truly unbiased and only provide affiliate links for products we stand behind. To also maintain independence, we only utilize affiliate links for non-specific retailers (ie Amazon and eBay), so that we are not advertising products or brands merely due to their affiliate programs. Availability of products or brands on Amazon or eBay also does not affect our judgment. We encourage you to research amongst all retailers, not only ones we provide, to find the best price, quality, and service of retailer. Please contribute and support our ability to write and update content through the use of our affiliate links.
For privacy reasons, we have chosen not to write biographies of our founder and authors. Based in Washington DC, this site is run by authors who research, read, and interact with others knowledgeable in the areas we write about. Readers are encouraged to comment or email us with corrections or additions for any information we have missed, and we will take careful consideration.
