The editors and writers of this site are professionally and traditionally trained journalists and know the value of objective reporting and feature writing vs. being a public relations firm (being paid to say you like something). No writers on this site are paid to say good things about anything.
This and other National Lilac Publishing, LLC
online publications operate in the traditional manner of writing quality
content first to please readers, then adding appropriate advertisements
as the income source. Many suggested links from this site offer no
monetary value to our site at all – including no request to them from us
for a reciprocal link. Some are non-profits and some, such as the USDA,
are government information sites that may have value to our readers.
We believe in the value of authentic
journalism and that this approach will pay off for both us and our
commerce partners in the end, allowing us to financially continue to
serve our readers. Our monetization comes from the sale of recommended books and our Zazzle account selling products of interest to farmers and gardeners. We are phasing out our Google ads and will retain only the Google website search feature. We have turned down many requests by others to publish their "advertisement disguised as an article" and we will continue to turn them down.
