I pay for all goods and gear I review on this blog. In rare instances, I may review something that has been provided to me on loan; in that case, the relevant blog post will state clearly that the item was loaned. (This hasn’t actually happened yet.)
In rare instance that I keep something I’ve been sent, I will state that explicitly in the specific post. This won’t happen a lot; so far it’s happened exactly once.
I do not accept compensation, either in goods or other payment, for anything I write on this blog. Call me cranky, but I like my autonomy.
