In keeping with my philosophy of transparency regarding external influences on this blog, I will keep this page updated with recent sources of income, favors, and gear.
This blog costs a bit to run now that I’m well past 100,000 pageviews per month. Therefore, I’ve implemented a few features to help pay the bills:
- Amazon Associates links for items sold by Amazon
- VigLink associates links for other things
- Google AdSense ads
- Direct advertisement clients:
Gear for Review
Vendors often contact me to review their gear on my web site. Although I’m flattered by this, I cannot possibly spend time examining and posting reviews of everything I get. I also often write about interesting gear based on my own purchases, only to have manufacturers contact me later offering additional equipment.
I have recently received the following gear free of charge:
- ioSafe SoloPro
- Cradlepoint MBR1200, power adapter, antenna kit, and PHS300 case and battery
- Seagate GoFlex 1 TB drive, Pro 500 GB drive, cables
- Iomega ix4-200d
- Iomega USB 3 SSD
- CalDigit USB 3 PCI Express Card
- MeteGeek Wi-Spy
I’ve paid for pretty much everything else I write about.
In summary: Send me your equipment if you want, but I won’t guarantee to write about it. And I’ll write about other stuff (and pay for it out of pocket) if I want.
