I write all my posts myself and enjoy doing so. I would not write about a product positively to be paid if I did not agree with those views. I blog because I enjoy it, not to earn money.
Many pictures used on this blog are not owned by me. I don't intend to copyright images, they usually come off Google Images.
When I write about or review products, they are bought by me or a family member or friend for a present. I do not get sent them or paid to write about them. But if I start to do that sort of thing in the future, I will make sure that its made obvious.
