Endorsements and Other Considerations

Our house as a watercolor.


Occasionally on Our Philly Row you will read about products, services, or business I have used or worked with during the process of renovation and decoration in our home. You may also read about items which I have fallen in love with and must have because they are just awesome. By my writing about various products, services, and businesses, I am doing so based only on my experience and my opinions.

If I show excitement about a particular product or service, it is because I am genuinely excited about it. While I may personally endorse a particular product or service on Our Philly Row, this should not be taken as an indication that you will have the same experience.

Likewise, you may read about a product I am not happy about. It is not my intention to defame any product or service which I write about. It is not my nature to talk trash, but I am not afraid to express my opinion about an experience or product which I have used. I will also make no claims about any experience you may have with any product or service I write about.

As of this writing, I have not received any products or services from manufacturers or service providers with any expectation that they be used and my experience written about. If such an occasion should arise, I will be completely transparent and you will know that I have received such opportunity.

Affiliate Links:

After careful consideration, I have decided to partner with Amazon Associates and provide affiliate links to products which I have personally used and been satisfied with. This is in keeping with my belief that one should never endorse anything they don’t themselves believe in. By clicking on the links you will be taken to the product on Amazon’s website via the special link. At no cost to you, I will make a small commission if you click through and make a purchase. Affiliate links will always be flagged with an asterisk (*) which will refer to a disclosure about this affiliation at the end of each post in which an affiliate links exist. While the purpose of this blog is not about making money, hosting and domain registration are not free.


You can see that there is no direct advertising on my site (affiliate links notwithstanding). This is because I would prefer to keep my site and my opinions as objective as possible. While it is entirely possible that at some point in the future I may choose to change my site and add minimal advertising, you can be sure that anything I may put on the site will be well vetted and reviewed before doing so. I cannot promote anything I do not personally believe in.


Everyone who knows me knows well that I have one and I am not afraid to express it. Just know it is mine and while we may not always agree, I will always respect the opinions of others.

Images and Link Backs:

I frequently use images found elsewhere on the Internets, and believe that credit is due to those who produce the original content. In using images, I try my best to take the time to explore and locate the original image source whenever reasonably possible. That means that while I may have found an image in a typical image search or aggregator, if I am able to determine that it came from elsewhere, I will post a link back to that source. I will occasionally post an image where I cannot determine the source, and will make every effort to disclose such information. If I have posted an image to which you have rights to and have not properly credited it, please contact me and I will do my best to comply with your request for credit or if necessary, removal of the image.

Images which I have created with my equipment are automatically to be credited to myself even if I have used third party applications to alter such images.
