Blog posts featuring some merchants
All this years, I have written about various physical shops that I have visited. Todate, I have never received any compensation (monetary or otherwise) even though some of these merchants’ business have thrived because I wrote about them. Neither had I requested any compensation from them. In fact, most of these merchants do not even know my identity because I am quite a low profile person in real life. I tend to observe, and write in a blog post if the inspiration comes to me.
My main objective is to help my visitors who may be looking for the same products, items, food and services that I may have come across.
However, still have bills to pay and at the very least, have to cover for my hosting fee. Hence, this site supports itself based on 3rd party advertisers and affiliates.
I like what the FTC (Federal Trade Commission) mandates US site owners to post a full disclosure especially if they are carrying affiliate links. Even though it is not a requirement here, I want to be transparent and upfront to you, my valued readers.
Update Dec 2017: I have removed most of the affiliate links to this site.
Some of the posts in this site may contain affiliate links in which you may view at no cost to you. If you click on an affiliate link and visit the site, a cookie (not the edible type) may be set in your web browser that will cause me to receive compensation if you make a purchase.
Having said that, I would not include links of brands that I do not trust or put up an affiliate just because it pays well. My writing style never change…. I continue to write sincerely and within what I believe in.
