You may have noticed
some many sponsored posts lately. This ratio of sponsored posts to original content is a limited time thing.
There's been a lot of (short term) sicknesses in my family. My 1 year old had a nasty stomach bug that spread to my 2 year old that spread to my wife and finally me. I've been either nurse or patient for a week now.
Around the same time, some high-quality companies such as TaxAct and US Bank approached me to do some sponsored posts. I hate to say no to these influential companies as they can be my biggest advertisers. Without advertisers, this website can't exist.
I could have gone a couple of weeks with no posts letting it appear to be dead. Fortunately these companies saved me by coming in at the right time. When life gives you lemons make lemonade. This was a way to make the best of a very ugly situation. (Trust me you don't want the detail on the stomach virus.)
I'm still drifting in an out of consciousness (I guess this is what happens when you don't eat for days), but at least most of the symptoms have subsided. I should be back and writing new articles soon, if not tomorrow.
