Site Update

Have had several comments recently asking about the status of this site and why there have been so many non-review posts lately.

I've started a new job in the past six months, along with some other life changes, that have prohibited me from posting/doing reviews.

Without getting into too many boring details, my revenue from advertising was already trending down in the six months prior to that and that money from advertising is what was paying for the products I reviewed.  I was breaking even prior to those changes (income from revenue was paying for the products in their entirety), but once that revenue went down due to changes in policies with my advertisers, the site became a personal money loser for me and it was not something I could continue in perpetuity without having to borrow money from my actual day job earnings.

As it stands now, the non-review posts are a way to put some content up on the site, but in reality, I'm not sure that there will be much (if any) new, original content from me going forward.  I won't shut the door entirely on the site, but as of now, I do not have the time to pick the site back up as it was.

Anyway, just wanted to answer a few of those comments.  Here's hoping everyone out there has a happy and healthy 2017!

  1. We do appreciate all you've done!!

  2. I'm sad to hear this news!!!

    But I totally understand. I will still drop by...hoping things pick back up.

  3. So sad! Sorry to hear your revenue is drying up. I've always loved reading your reviews and hope if your life slows down you will continue to do reviews. Perhaps you could get free products with the understanding your reviews would remain uninfluenced by producers. Just a thought. I'm sure merchants would love to have you write about their products as exposure, good or bad. Best of luck to you!
