About me ...
and this website


My reviews are independent, unaffiliated, and unashamedly opinionated. I make no money off these links. Nor, to my knowledge, will you find reciprocal links for me on any of the websites listed. I’d rather be free to kick off a link that no longer meets my standards, than to make a bad buck off your trust.

These lists began as my personal short-list after spending countless hours scouring the web looking at hundreds of resource websites (most of which I wouldn’t recommend to my friends, which is why my lists are relatively small). In most cases, I have personally used the services of the company reviewed. Also, I review each link and update regularly.
