This is a personal blog written and edited by Harold L. Shaw.

I do not:

  • accept forms of cash advertising,
  • provide product reviews, specifically in exchange for free products
  • paid insertions on this blog.

When/if I do a specific product review on this blog, it will most likely be a product that is a gift from family or friends or something I have purchased and personally use. Those reviews will not have link-backs, to the product’s web site per the WordPress.com Terms of Service for the purpose of driving traffic to that website.

The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely my own. I give my honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences that I write about on A Runnah’s Story.

Let’s be honest – Your experience with a product probably will be different than my own and may either be positive or negative. So do not use my experiences as the basis for decisions you choose to make.

This blog does not contain any content which might present a conflict of interest, with any former or current employer, sponsors or other entity.
