Home and Harrow also occasionally accepts forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions, or other forms of compensation.

I abide by word of mouth marketing standards.  I believe in honesty of relationship, opinion and identity.  The compensation received may influence the advertising content, topics or posts made in this blog.  That content, advertising space or post will be clearly identified as paid or sponsored content.

As the owner of this blog, I am sometimes compensated to provide opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics.  Even though I sometimes receive compensation for my posts or advertisements, I always give my honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences on those topics or products.  The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely my own.  Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.
