Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer is a personal blog written and edited by me. This blog accepts forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions or other forms of compensation.

This blog abides by word of mouth marketing standards. I believe in honesty of relationship, opinion and identity.

I was previously in the Amazon Associate Program, which I did make a very small affiliate commission with some Amazon links on this blog. While I'm not currently part the of program, I still put an Amazon link in every review.

I sometimes work with ValuedVoice and Get Blogged, in which I either write a post or publish a pre-written article. I do get paid for these posts, which the money goes back into my blog for reviews, giveaways, graphics, and events.
