This blog (www.VagabondJourney.com) is edited, written, and maintained by me, Wade Shepard, and my team of contributors. I am not running a hobby here, this is my business, so I have many forms of advertising on the site as well as affiliate links and banners which include Adsense, Viglink, and Amazon Services LLC Associates Program — an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com.

While I do sell advertising space and engage in affiliate programs, keep in mind that all of our reviews and recommendations are honest. We give both positive and negative reviews, our word and our reputation is our greatest asset, and we will not do anything to jeopardize your confidence in it.
