Disclosure Statement

Why have a disclosure statement? As genealogy blogging has come of age, a disclosure statement is an attempt to provide transparency to readers about the content on my blog. The Keough Corner is a personal blog written and edited by me. For questions about this blog, please leave a comment or send me an email (I will get back with you).

The Keough Corner does not accept any form of advertising, sponsorship, or paid insertions. I write for my own purposes ~ if I reference a software program, a book or journal, a speaker or a conference or seminar ~ it is because I use it, read it, heard or saw the speaker, or attended the conference or seminar AND find it useful, learned from it or her/him, and want to let my readers in on the experience. So anything you read in The Keough Corner is the result of me stumbling upon the information or resource. Another reason I don't have advertising is that I find it distracting ~ I just happen to like a clean layout ~ to each her/his own. That said, and as is the case with all of us humans, I am the product of and influenced by my background, occupation, religion, political affiliation and experiences, so what you read has been processed through the "Tessa Filter."

I am not compensated to provide an opinion on products, services, websites, and/or various other topics. The views and opinions expressed on The Keough Corner are purely my own. Any comment or endorsement of a product or service is based on my personal use and should not be taken to be a representation about that product or service.
