A question came up from a reader the other day, so I thought I’d post my response – in case anyone else was wondering the same thing.
Q: When I mention products, etc., am I doing product placement or promotion?
A: No. Whenever I mention a product, service, organization, person, etc. in this blog it’s because I’ve had some experience with it/them, like it/them and want to share it/them. And that’s all. I am not promoting anything or anyone per se in this blog – although I will personally recommend or shout out stuff and folks I like. It’s all just personal preference. Good question, though – since this is the age of the web and all.
